Heh, maybe! Ultimately, they are worth what someone is willing to pay for them!@Ladogaboy, 1500 miles is at just the break in period for better mileage; shouldn't it be more then new? ;-) kidding. kidding.
On my LEAF, the change in tires made a noticeable difference in handling and stop distance. I'm not sure that it will do the same for the Volt because handling is already good but I think stop distance will improve since the Volt factory tires are low rolling resistance tires. Of course, the draw back by not using these will be a decrease in fuel efficiency but I'm hoping not by much.Another thing you might want to consider is separating the tires (kind of a hassle, and not ideal), but I could see Volt owners more interested in a full spare that they can tuck away in the garage for long road trips and such.
Me too - this is what I replaced my LEAF tires with and they made a big difference in handling and feedback but I didn't get the LRR version. I think if I were to choose MXM4s again that I'll not get LRR and take a little hit in efficiency.I've had good experiences with Michelin MXM4s. Just make sure you get the LRR version.
