Recently replaced my original tires with Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season+2 and absolutely love them. I bought the same size as the original tires (235/45 R18)...I considered upsizing slightly but the price was about $200 more so I stayed with the original size. The OEM tires were going to be about $1,000 at the dealership so I shopped these at Tire Rack and got them for $683.20 delivered. I've never had Pirelli tires before but now won't buy anything else again. Fuel mileage is unchanged....I make the same 420 mile round trip several times each year, starting with a full battery and driving in HV mode. Actual measured mileage remained unchanged with these new tires, and they ride so well and the car handles great with them. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

The Cinturato are good tires. I've had them on my Cruze ECO and loved them for about the first 50,000 miles. Then they got very loud. Hopefully the new tread compound resolves this issue.

Any chance you tested milage all in EV?

I put the Cinturato P7 tires on my Cruze Eco and my MPG remained the same. The Cruze came with the Goodyear FuelMax tires.

What's the maximum sidewall aspect ratio that will fit on the Clarity Hybrid Touring model? Can I go to a 55 or 65/R18 or higher? I'd like to get a little bit smoother ride and I'm wondering if a higher sidewall will take out some of the harshness. I recognize that it will impact the gas mileage - although not sure how much. Thanks.

Has anyone tried the Michelin Primacy Tour A/S 235/45R18 94V ? I would be interested in how quiet they are and if you get the same or similar EV and ICE range. My factory original 2018 tires at only 32K are getting ready for replacement even with regular rotations. The Michelin Primacy Tours have a 55,000 mile warrantee that would make them more economical than replacing tires at 35,000 miles,

I just put these exact tires on my 2018 Clarity and I drive 41.5 miles to work each day and I can generally make it on all electric but with these new tires I have seen a 5-7 miles range reduction and I am now using some fuel to get to work. It is possible that once the tires are worn in a bit I’ll get better mileage.

Depending where you are, you'll get reduced mileage simply because of lower average temperatures this time of year, too. In my experience, even here in "sunny" So. CA, we see a consistent yearly reduction of at least 10%, when night-time temps get down to the low 50s F. Daytime temps range from 65-75F, typically. This has been in both EVs, and PHEVs.

That sounds great. I will follow your suggestion. May I ask, where did you buy them, is it the same price everywhere?
Consumer report says they are great tires as long as you don't drive on icy roads. I just replaced mine with Continental Pure Contact LS, which were recommended by CR and rated very good in all weather and excellent handing and low rolling resistance which should keep EV milage high- I will check
