Hi everyone!
955


We are conducting a survey for school about which attributes customers value the most when buying tires. We would really appreciate all answers regarding the picture above!

It would also be a great help if you told why you chose a certain option.

Thank you for your help!

Good question! :) Sustainability as in sustainable production process of the tires, including e.g. use of renewable materials, responsible sourcing, sustainable waste and emissions management etc.
Since most consumers really don't even know what company actually MAKES the tires that carry various brand names, they hardly could be expected to have access to Sustainability information.
Thus, including that in your "survey" is just a confusion factor.

My 2012 Prius has 106,000 miles. I've replace the tires twice at Toyota and once at Firestone. The first three sets lasted about 30,000 miles each. When I rotated the Firestones (which were rated to last 65,000 miles) @ 19,000 miles, I was advised they showed significant wear. I've been told that 'light weight' cars have a suspension that is 'tough on tires'. Any suggestions on replacements that won't wear out so fast? Or does everybody have this problem?

Depends if your state has much rain. In the UK I hated the ERR Dunlop Enasave 300+ as there wet performance left a lot to be desired, some would say downright dangerous. I chose Dunlop BluResponse Sport and gave up 2% fuel saving for an extra 6 metre stopping distance. In US I understand that the BluResponse is rare… so try their sister companies Goodyear equivalent. Beware ERR though if you want to arrive your Prius with the handling of a normal car..
