    Thanks.

    One post seemed to say only one tire change was part of the maintenance done - hadn't seen that post. Makes much more sense

    Do you use synthetic oil or regular?

    I got 75000 miles on the factory tires.

    Replaced all around with Michelin Defender 90K tires. Got a good deal, but ticked off because my mpg immediately dropped from averaging 45-46mpg per tank to 40-41mpg if I'm lucky (PriusV).

    Anybody else had this problem with these tires? I went on the recommendation of a co-worker who put them on a regular Prius and got no adverse effects. Any reason why a V might get, what I consider, a major gas mileage hit? Already checked proper inflation. No noticeable jitter from improper alignment or mounting that I can tell.

    I had hoped there might be a breakin period, but I've put 8000 miles on the new tires and mpg is still low.

    As I understand it, tires are complicated. For a given brand and model there can be variants that materially differ.

    Technically, it appears that they're not considered LRR tires.

    My light just came on this week,
    Time for 100,000 oil change/check up.

    Replaced tires around 40k with Michelin Energy Saver A/S (fantastic tires)
    K&N air filter
    Mudflaps from Priuschat.com
    OPT7 LED headlights (tired of replacing Sylvania ultra's every 9 months)
    Replaced all interior lights with LED.

    No oil leaks, not burning any oil. Never run ethanol blended gas in it as manual suggest not too. (had to maybe 3 times)

    Look forward to another 100k.

    Just traded in my 2012 V5 for a Prime Premium. Loved the V! 125,000 mi. 51.6 reported MPG 48.86 calculated. OEM tires, (Yokohama?) Blue Earth, got 100k out of 3 tires, lost one to screw in sidewall. Tires inflated to 65 psi for 100k. I miss the cargo room though. :)
