    Default 2016 200S AWD and Stock 235/40-19 Nexen Classe Premiere CP671...Your Tire Thoughts?

    We've had our new 2016 200S AWD since Saturday May 28th and have about 1100 miles on it.

    Did some research here on the forum regarding these tires and would like to share our first impressions that may or may not match some opinions, keeping in mind, all thoughts and opinions are subjective, especially due to your driving style and where you live.

    These Passenger aka Grand Touring Tires: IMO are noisy, you feel quite a few bumps, and they don't seem have the best traction/grip in the rain or on dry pavement.

    For those early 2016 owners, how did they do in the light snow/winter we had last year, if you live in the North East?

    For the 2015/early 2016 owners, how has the wear been...anyone get 30K miles out of these yet?

    For a car that has a MSRP of around $30K plus, I know tire options for our 200S AWD with 19 inch wheels may have been limited, but one would think Chrysler could have equipped our cars with a better Tire than one that costs just over $100 each to replace...just my 2 cents and 1100 miles...

    Thanks in Advance

    Well... it depends on the car you buy and who is running the show when you bought it. Subaru, Toyota Honda run of the mill... more likely to get cheap tires.

    My 2013 Chrysler 200 Limited with the 17's really could have not come with better tires than what they came with, they are top of the line for sure. They are the same exact tires down to the size that were OEM on the Infinity G37x of the same year. Michelin Primacy MXV4. There wasn't a tire that was higher rated in it's segment/size (high performance V rated all season) that year.

    Off topic to the 200 - We've owned quite of few Subaru's (8, including two WRXs and a STi) and a Mitsu EVO IX. Being in the North East, it was frustrating to buy the WRXs and STi and the EVO, that came stock with "Summer Performance Tires" that were maybe @ best mid-line tires and that were not good for the late Fall, Winter, and early Spring.

    FWIW, even the stock Goodyear Wrangler tires on the 3 JEEP Wranglers we've owned could at best be considered mid-line.

    I own the 3.6 AWD and was able to get a whopping 22,000 miles out of the stock Ecopia's. I replaced with Continental Pure Contact tires that were good for the 1st 18,000 miles. I now have 30,000 miles on the tires and can't wait for them to wear out. I'm down to the wear bars so it shouldn't be much longer. They have been terribly noisy for the past 8,000 miles. They are wearing evenly though. My next set will be Pirelli P7 Centurato's. Maybe these will last longer than 30,000 miles....

    I've had great luck with Conti DWS on my previous cars.. Gotta be religious with the tire pressure to keep them from getting noisy but I think that's true of most tires these days especially on these grand touring sedans weighing 3700 lbs!!

    I just bought a used 2015 200c with the 19's with about 21000 miles on it. It appears to still have the OEM Nexen tires. As such, I don't know how much life they have left. I'm looking at other options of what to put on it when the time comes, but it would seem that options in this size are more limited. Should be able to find something that works well as a good all season. Don't have the available cash currently for separate winter and summer tires.
