Was at my local dealer looking at 2018 models, noticed 3 different tires on 3 hybrid Limited, all assembled in Japan. They are Michelin latitude, Yokohama Geolander and Bridgestone. Do they perform the same? Personally, not too happy with geolanders from past experience.

What's your thoughts?

Does it matter?

I got the Michelin Latitude HP with mine. They had a rather long break in period of about 1500km, but have been very quiet and grippy ever since. Nice highway ride and reasonable cornering. They have a softer sidewall than some other tires and I think that helps the ride quality. I've noticed the vehicle rides much better when loaded down. Rough roads are harsh due to the suspension and a low profile or firmer sidewall would make it worse. I've heard that the 18" wheels have a worse ride than my 17" ones.

Mine came with Geolander, which I threw away after about a month and got Michelin Primacy.

I got the Bridgestones. They have good grip and wear seems OK.

I eco my rav4 so I do not really use the tires to the limit.

Bridgstone Ecopia?

I have Michelin Latitude one mine. I'm not impressed with cornering but not sure if it's because of the tire or the car!
