I don’t think you can go wrong with the Michelin Crossclimate, but the Falken tire that sas-XV replaced is not the Falken Wildpeak which is a very different tire from the oem Falken. I’m currently running the Wildpeaks and find them to be excellent wet road tires and I haven’t had an issue with noise. My mileage is down about 2 mpg from the oem Yokohama’s they replaced. There’s quite a lot of information on both of your choices on this forum. I also like the ride improvement from oem with the Wildpeaks.. I haven’t experienced the Michelin but have heard nothing but good reviews about them.Definitely following this. I am between these and the wildpeaks, but might prefer the crossclimate 2 for the lower noise level and potential lower drag.
