Keep in mind, the softer the ride on the tires you have, the less mileage you'll get out of them. If you want a higher mileage tire, then you'll have a tire that rides rougher. I have these Continentals on my 2022 and they ride pretty nicely. I also understand they will wear out sooner than later. They came with my Blazer, so what can I do except run them out and buy new tires once I'm ready. I won't buy Continental, and most likely go to a higher mileage tire. They aren't faulty tires. They are just tires that are made from a softer rubber compound, which means you will not get high miles out of them. If you put a 60 to 80k-mile tire on your vehicle, you will notice a huge difference in how stiff and rigid those tires will be. You can buy a higher mileage tire, but that typically means you will lose some comfort in the ride. When you shop for tires, you need to go into the purchase understanding the variance in ride comfort between high-mileage and low-mileage tires. The only reason you can get higher miles from a tire is because the compounds in the rubber are harder, which translates to a stiffer ride. You can dampen the ride with better struts/shocks, and also by deflating the tire a bit to soften the ride, but I personally wouldn't deflate the tires below factory specs. You can wear out your tires prematurely by doing that, too.I love my 2021 Blazer RS.. I purchased it brand new but had to replace the 21” tires at about 25k miles… I was hoping maybe the factory tires were junk, but my replacement set have had about the same lifespan.. Has anyone just went to a different rim size altogether? Did that seem to help? I have a fairly long work commute and my car hydroplanes terribly!! I also moved to a more rural area and would like more tread.. any suggestions?
There are lots of good choices out there to switch to, so when you go looking for new tires, be sure and ask the right questions.
