When a new vehicle approaches 30,000 - 40,000 miles on the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) tires they are probably approaching the end of their serviceable life. Rather than replace with the same type of OEM tires one can consider alternatives superior to the ones originally chosen by the manufacturer. In the case of the Clarity, one must still consider a tire with excellent rolling resistance so as not to lose any of the efficiency performance of the original tires. However, in staying within the Michelin family of tires the Michelin Primacy All Season Tour A/S tire is an excellent alternative choice for a few important reasons. For one thing, these tires are noticeably quieter than the Michelin OEM tires they replace on the Clarity. In an electric vehicle, damping down road noise is even more important than with combustion vehicles because it is the road noise transmitted via the tires you tend to notice the most when driving an electric vehicle. Beyond that however, the Michelin Primacy All Season Tour A/S is an excellent choice for inclement weather driving as well, even providing some measure of traction control in moderate road conditions where snow is a factor. So, with many of us now reporting mileages of well north of 30,000 miles, do consider other tire alternatives other than simply replacing with original equipment (OEM) tires. You may find you will enjoy the ride experience more and have a safer tire in the bargain too.
