Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season light truck tires are for drivers who want a combination of sophisticated low-profile tires/large rim diameter wheels to enhance their vehicle’s appearance with all-season versatility, including traction in light snow. Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season tires branded with the M+S symbol are sometimes used as Original Equipment (O.E.) on 2WD and 4WD light- and medium-duty crossover and sport utility vehicles.

O.E. Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season light truck tires are typically purchased as direct replacements for worn-out pairs/sets of the vehicle’s original tires. They can also be used for other vehicle applications in complete sets of four or axle pairs if available in an appropriate size, load range and speed rating to match the existing O.E. tires’ performance category and specifications.


  1. These came with my Chrysler Pacifica. Treadwear is great, but these are super noisy after 10000 miles. These are actually louder than my dedicated continental winter tires. Got so fed up with the constant drone between 55-70 mph so I swapped these out. They look new, but give me a headache. Would suggest looking at something else.

  2. If you live somewhere that it is always dry, these tires are perfectly suitable HOWEVER if you regularly drive in rain or snow keep looking. These tires have truly horrendous snow and ice traction and are downright dangerous. Should not be legal to even sell these on new vehicles north of the Mason Dixon line.

  3. Original equipment and pleasantly surprised with overall ride, noise level and traction but most importantly they still have tread at 50,000 plus miles. I drive mostly highway miles on southern roads with no snow or ice. This may explain both my review and the good mileage.

  4. As original equipment tires go they have been perfectly adequate. I have been disappointed with the wear on the front tires.It’s October now and I hesitate to go through this winter without dedicated winter tires or getting new tires. I understand thatthey will wear differently on the front of a front wheel drive van with a V-6 but this wear seems excessive.

  5. OE on the cx9 I bought new a year ago. I have been advised by the service dept at my Mazda dealer that I need to replace the tires already. I feel tires should last a little longer. Especially for the price these are. I have to wonder if this is normal or if there is a defect.

  6. Tires always been very noisey since new,horrible snow traction with any accumulation.Wearing extremely fast considering vehicle is in perfect alignment.

  7. We purchased our CX9 Signature in July of 2016 – the first out of the Cleveland area dealer where we found it. So at almost 42k miles in that short time, we’ve obviously driven the car a lot. These tires were unknown to me and I was skeptical about how they would fare.Overall, I would say these certainly held up reasonable well and I would say that I’m satisfied for all but the winter months. Normal dry & wet conditions didn’t seem to bother these tires at all. Once there is any kind of white stuff on the road surface, they become a different beast. Were it not for AWD, these tires would have allowed this almost $50k car to see the ditch on several occasions. The car will easily slide into an intersection if you’re not paying attention in slippery conditions. Living in NW Ohio, we don’t have the snow found in NE Ohio and it has always been a toss up as to whether it made sense to buy winter tires as even in the winter, the predominant condition is dry/wet. Typically, we just make adjustments for the really bad weather and drive super careful.Others have mentioned road noise and that has certainly increased dramatically with ever rotation which I do at the same time as oil changes. They are howling now but are definitely at the end of their life cycle. There are certainly quieter tires out there. I recognize that there will always be trade offs with tire performance. My replacement tires will definitely be something that carries better winter traction ratings than what I’ve been experiencing with these as well as less noise (if possible) while retaining the solid dry & wet performance that we need for the vast majority of the time.
