I installed CrossContact LX20 EcoPlus a few months ago and they are very quiet with great grip in the rain. Very impressed. I have heard that they are also very good in the snow...

I'm looking on Mavis website.
Annoying that it seems every OTHER manufacturer has a rebate except Continental. Grr. I need the tires too.

Where are you looking?
I see Sears sells them but their site is ambiguous about which lx20 eco plus it is.

Continental is very frugal when it comes to rebates. Its seems to be a very good tire at a very low price... They could charge higher prices for their tires and then give you a rebate. LOL...

Well although I did not get a set of winter tires I preferred. I did get a set of OEM 18" Hyundai rims with winter tires on them. I figure from the thread depending on the wear rate I'll get two season out of them. Not what is normally used to mount winter tires on. But I have the same nice rims for a second set of tires. Once the existing All Season wear out I can select what might go on those rims EG All Weather Tires for example


the entire package was $400 which I thought was good. Even though future winter tires are more expensive and limited for that rim. I'll deal with it. Other than my driveway and adjoining roadway there is not a lot of snow on the roads depth wise.

BrianJ is on a distinguished road
While another tire thread is up, I'd like some input on the ride quality of tires like the LX20. I've got the original 18 inch Duelers on my 2010, and the one thing that bugs me about this car is the bumpy ride. Has anyone found the LX20's or other replacements give a notably better ride? I'm also snooping around the local bone yards for a set of 17 inch wheels to improve the ride when these Duelers wear out. I run separate winter tires.

@BrianJ


Bumpy roads = Bumpy ride


I doubt anything but 16" will improve it much and also using a car tire as opposed a SUV tire which are stiffer sidewall with more plies. I am riding on 18" rims as will with the winter set I just got as they're mounted on another set of the same rims. I would not have got them had it not been for the price. So I am married to them. Most of my driving is on relatively smooth roads.

Instead of starting a new thread, I'll leave this here. After reading most of the tire threads, and needing to replace the tires on my Sante Fe Limited, I ordered a set of Continental LX 20 Cross Contact Eco Plus. $748 installed. Won't have them on until Wednesday, as they had none in stock. The stock Bridgestones have 46,000+ on them, which I think is pretty good considering all the poor reviews I've read. I will be interested to see how they perform in deeper snow, as we deal with that on a somewhat regular basis. Considering that our Sante is AWD, I don't foresee any major issues in the deep stuff.

The tires were mounted today. I will give some updates after getting some miles on them.
