I got the pilot sport a/s 3s installed. Wow is all I can say. I only have 100 miles on them but everything is better. First off the road noise is much less. Second you feel way more in control as there is much more response. The sidewall is thicker and the rubber goes out from the rim more. Much more stability than the energy saver. I took it out the windy road and traction and stability was insane over the energy saver. Then on the dirt road where I would normally have to get a running start or it would spin drove right up without losing traction once. It also drove nice on gravel. Had I known the energy savers were this bad and made the car handle and drive so much worse than it could I would have tossed them before I drove it off the lot. I'm not a race car driver but the stability of them was rubbish. Wet traction was also terrible. I could take corners faster in my 10k pound 1 ton with mud tires. I'm really curious how these will handle in the wet. I will report back. I would recommend them to anyone that gets new tires. They do not come with as good of warrantee, only 45k instead of 65k but much better tire.

 

Let us know how they wear in the long run!

I change the oil and rotate the tires every 7500.

 

Unless you are running a vast majority of the time on ICE, the oil change is too often.

 

Your car keeps track of ICE usage and will tell you (oil life) when you need to change it. It's side benefit of using your EV... You can see your oil life on the left read out OR in a vehicle report.

Nitrogen is a waste of money...  unless you are in NASCAR. Consumer Reports and other will tell you that. If you think about it, the atmophere is above 70% Nitrogen already, so you are not getting much more.

 

I run my car at 38 PSI and have pressure caps so I know they are at that pressure.

 

31k miles and still on the originals (minus one that took a nail and covered under road hazard).

 

Might try calling Ford customer service or chatting up a Ford service rep on these boards.

Has the OP suffered decreased mileage with the new tires? The stock tires are complete crap - and I've only put 400 miles on them. I had a set of Hankook Ventus s1 noble2 on my Focus and they felt miles better than these Michelin tires.

I just turned 20k miles on the car and also got the 10k ev award so I'm 50/50. Everyone will say something different. I'm a oil guy. I change oil in my diesel every 3k which holds 16qrts. Fresh oil will help your motor....sure you can change it later but it's not going to help the motor. Also I don't see a change in my mileage. I drive rough terrain so maybe a mpg or something but not noticable.

I put Pilot Sport A/S 3 tires on my 2014 Fusion Hybrid, performance was much better both wet & dry. Fuel mileage dropped about 2 MPG, but it is worth it for the improved safety over the energy savers which slid all the time in the rain.

Almost at 50,000 miles and too near the wear lines so I decided to go ahead and put a new pair of tires on the car. I probably could have gotten another thousand or so miles out the Energy Saver A/S but I can really tell that the car does not track as well as it once did and it is also a bit more noisy than it was. I went back and forth on whether to "upgrade" the tire to the Premier A/S for better wet performance as it can get pretty wet in the South especially on my trips to Florida but I just kept coming back to the Energy Saver being a really solid tire, the best tire I can remember purchasing with a car. Most other cars I have replaced the tire sooner due to performance or noise... but these tires have been very nice.

 

So I am the happy owner of 4 new Energy Saver A/S tires and the car is back to driving how I remember it driving. What a difference new tires make! :)

I had a 2013 Fusion Hybrid and wore tires out every 30000. 

I had a 2009 VW Jetta and wore tires out every 16000

I'm waiting to see how this 2017 Enregi does, got 3000 on it now.

My previous car was an Acura TL, the car before that was a BMW 5 series... both of those cars munched on tires (my driving probably had a little to do with it :)  ).

 

I try to keep the tires rotated every 5-8 thousand miles... that seems to keep the wear down.
