    Has anyone put these on their Prius? I did and i just went almost 500 miles on 8.658 Gallons with an actual MPG of 57.1.

    If so, have you improved?

    I have a 2016 Prius Four Touring

    Thank you,

    I'm on my second set of these & for the price they do just fine. Only issue I've had is they get noisy over time.

    And pretty much every tire does that.

    They came on my 2015 as the OEM tire, and are just fine. I do switch them out for snow tires in the winter.

    I would suspect many husbands do, if their wives are driving.

    I have 2015 that also came with these tires on it(Goodyear Assurance), they are quiet with 27k miles on them. I would consider purchasing them again when I need tires.

    Your probably right, but from what I know of men and guess about women - I'll be picking a wife every time. No fussy husband for me! :confused:

    I've had a few sets but the last 2 times I needed tires I went back to Yokohamma. I found the Goodyears to become extremely noisy for the second half of their life. The nose was very annoying on the highway.

    Our Bridgestone Ecopia EP20 were thus. Ditto for our Micheline Pilot HX MXM4, maybe pretty common.

    I suspect same goes for a lot of marriages.

    Got me thinking about this, Woody Allen quote:

    The Elder Zelig's second marriage is marked by constant violent quarreling. So much so that although the family lives over a bowling alley, it is the bowling alley that complains of noise.

    I had Assurance Fuel Max Tires on my Prius c. The tires became very noisy (like grinding rocks) once the tread became 6/32. Oh, and that was after about 20,000 miles.
