Thanks for previous help and info.
Nothing is ever simple, I guess.
Have a 2009 Buick LaCrosse
Live in Boston. Get our share of snow and ice, but nothing like
northern Maine or Minn.
Presently, I have Michelin Primacy MXV4 (225/60R16 H) on the car.
The rear tires are truly in excellent shape.
No need to replace them.
The front tires need replacement as there is considerable thread wear.
But, according to Tire Rack: "Michelin Primacy MXV4 is discontinued.
Its replaced by Michelin Premier AS, in stock"
So, I guess my question for you experts is: are the threads similar
(enough) if I only replace the front tires with these new Premier AS ones ?
Or, is mixing tires a real no-no, even if "similar" ?
Would sure like to keep the rear ones, due to cost.
