    The stock Toyo tires that came with my 2016 Prius are cracking and has a leak only after 32k miles (5 years) which is really disappointing. But I figured it would be a good time to gather some tire recommendations and get new tires.

    I live in the PNW where it can be pretty wet half of the year. Plus I go on gravel roads a lot for hikes. I was wondering if people have any recommendations for a tire that can handle those roads without sacrificing too much on mileage since I still do drive mostly on highways/city. I plan on shopping at Costco for tires if that helps and the options are Michelin Primacy AS, Defender T+H, X-Tour, X-Ice-Snow or Bridgestone Ecopias.

    Michelins in general are great for traction, braking but you won't get good gas mileage. Ecopias as mentioned got me decent gas mileage and do a decent job in many categories, just not snow which you aren't concerned about.
