Time to replace the 265/40/21 tires on our 2016 Reserve.   Tread depth is low but they're getting noisy as hell.  22k.

 

The only all season option I can find is the OEM Pirelli Verde.   Decent price (just under $200) but I was hoping for something that wasn't as noisy.   They were super quiet for the first 10K or so but got noisy after that.

Pirelli Scorpion Zero all season plus is avail from tirerack, prob is you will get less out of those than the oem but they will be great for the 1st 10k mi...  My oems have 33k on them and agree, noisy as heck..  Been through this drill with 3 mkx's and 2 navigators with Pirelli's, always try for the Michelin's 2nd set.

I saw those but the treadwear rating was half the Verdes as you say, and they were more expensive.   And no surveys yet.

 

I prefer Michelins but they don't have any all seasons available yet in a 21.

The Nautilus photos I’ve viewed seem to have a Continental tire for the 21’s. Never used that brand but it’s worth checking out.

Current: 2016 MKX 2.7 AWD, Reserve, Ingot Silver on Cappuccino, 21s, Luxury, Climate, Driver Assistance, Technology, Cargo Utility, Multi-contour, Adaptive Steering

Previous: 2016 MKX 2.7 AWD Reserve, Luxe on Ebony and 2013 MKX AWD, Elite, Ingot Silver on Light Stone

Hmm... I looked but didn't see anything on tirerack, but I'll look into it.

 

Thanks!

Those appear to be Cross Contact summer tires.

Conti Contact Series is a big favorite for older Porsche 911.

 

They comes in many flavours: Extreme, Winter, All Season, True, Pure, Pro, Terrain, Van and so on...

I had the Conti ProContacts as OEM on my 2013 Fusion and they were fine.

But they don’t have a 265/40r21 all season version right now.

Went with the OEM Pirelli Scorpion Verde A/S. $1K out the door at Discount Tire including free replacement warranty against any kind of damage.

Soooo much quieter. I think one of the old tires slipped a belt.

Great warranty. With the sidewalls on the 21's, all it takes is a nasty pothole. (or hitting a curb like someone we won't mention).

After I put on my last set, I had them wire brush the rims to make a good seal. But two (one especially) developed rim leaks. Took it back between xmas and new years and had then seal the rims. Stopped all of those pesky slow leaks. Something I'm going to do with any tire replacment from now on. No leaks, but tire removal a bitch and the mechanics cuss me out.

I’m going with the 18s on my new F150. Choices are much better!
