Passenger All-Season tires are for drivers who want a combination of a smooth ride, good wear and S- or T-speed rated durability along with all-season traction, including in light snow. Passenger All-Season tires branded with the M+S symbol are often used as Original Equipment (O.E.) on standard coupes, sedans and family vans, as well as some entry-level pickup, crossover and sport utility vehicles.

O.E. Passenger All-Season tires are typically purchased as direct replacements for worn-out pairs/sets of the vehicle’s original tires. They can also be used for other vehicle applications in complete sets of four or axle pairs if available in an appropriate size, load range and speed rating to match the existing O.E. tires’ performance category and specifications.

  1. This tire came O.E. on my ’10 Lancer ES. It ran hard and crisp for me and the wife for a good 3 years. Now that tires are hitting 60,000 miles, I’m starting to feel the softer sideways, the slight roll in the car. Some of this could be from the hot weather we’ve been having(and air pressure), but is most likely because we’re down to 2/32 left on the tire.It did surprisingly well for an O.E. I’m used to running Pirelli Neros and Kumho SPTs, but truthfully with 60 series sidewalls it works very nicely. The response is crisp as mentioned before and at times made me contemplate more bolstered seats! Most sporty tires last maybe 40,000, but these a great right up to 60,000. Never had issues in the snow either. I live on a street where there’s a traffic light at a 15% grade and easily frosts over in the winter. It never let me down! No hydroplaning either.

  2. These came on my new ’13 Mitsubishi Lancer SE AWC. I commute 120km’s per day. Tires were fine for first 40,000km’s but have virtually no traction on wet roads by 80,000km. With regular rotation, they’ve worn evenly, but by 60,000km they provided no wet road traction. I drive 5-6 months with snow and ice covered roads, so even with AWD I’ve purchased Blizzak’s for this third winter with the vehicle and a new set of Continental True Contact’s for the summer months. I don’t think they were all that noisy. Ride comfort was alright. Handling was alright as well(I don’t race around). These would be fine for summer dry/wet driving, but without AWD I’d get dedicated winter tires from my point of view.

  3. Overall a decent tire. I mainly do highway driving but have been through rain, snow, and even dirt. Pros: Great grip in almost any condition. Never once did it slip or lose traction in light snow. Not sure if due to the tires or the All Wheel Drive system, but either way no slipping is great. Cons: Under sharp turning, due to the fact of it being a OEM tire, you can feel the tire bend and wobble through cornering. Even though I have about 11k miles, the road noise is worse then when I first got it.Overall, great tire, I wish it had better noise and comfort performance, but for an OEM tire that isn’t a low profile, it does it’s job.

  4. Tires have too much NVH for a so called all season tire. Almost as loud as a set of worn out dedicated snow tires I have on another car. NVH begins at 50 mph and by 65 mph is really unacceptable. 80 mph and you can’t hear yourself think. Loudest tire I have owned and I am 41 yrs old, male, and on my 12th car. Low speed NVH is good, light snow traction is acceptable and better than bridgestone RE92’s I have owned in past. I will replace these factory tires well before they are worn out as I know they will just get louder and louder like all tires do. If not for NVH they would be decent for a stock all season tire. Not great, but recommendable which they are NOT right now with the NVH.Avoid .

  5. Basically, I estimate the amount of engine speed required to achieve speeds 40 mph or below from a crawl. Quickly and softly, my foot is applied to the accelerator. Once the tachometer reads about 2,000 rpm, that engine speed is held until my desired speed is met.I mention this hovering technique because its reliable in dry conditions, but useless in icy and snowy conditions. But wait. With the switch off, acceleration returns to normal (not necessarily improves). The downside of leaving it off occurs during mild steering inputs.I never realized how risky these tires were in S type turns until kept the traction control off. The tire has shortfalls, but the hardware within the Lancer hides them most of the time.Another technique of mine is soft braking. After allowing the Continuously Variable Trans to decelerate, the brake pedal is gently applied then slowly released. I normally manage to cut my speed by 5 or 7 mph within 1 or 2 seconds. It’s great for getting the most miles per gallon. On the other hand, this technique may falsely communicate that there’s an emergency to that pesky tail-gater feet from the rear bumper.There was one instant where my life was in a threatening position. My vehicle was approaching a traffic light downhill at or above 40 mph during snow season. My front wheels locked and my Lancer continued forward. I steered toward the right hoping for signs of maneuverability but nothing. The traffic light turned red and my vehicle kept moving. Eventually, the piles of snow on the shoulder (of LaGrange Rd) brought me to a hault. In this scenario, traction control did more harm.Thus, the S34B only hit their mark on dry pavement. Thanks to 60/40 weight distribution and front wheel drive, wet handling is around average. With traction control, they ‘re literally every where in snowy conditions.I’m writing this review after speaking to my dealership about a set of new tires.

  6. This tire came on my new car. Traction “B” rated… really?? I’ve never used anything less than “A” and prefer “AA” when possible. These tires are new (about 3,000 miles so far) and therefore I have little experience with them. HOWEVER, in my past experiences, any tire with traction “B” or less is just downright scary once worn a bit, especially on wet roads. I’m shocked to find a traction “B” tire on a new AWD vehicle. I can already feel the car start to slip and slide on wet roads at any speed over about 45. I have not had a chance to use the car on ice and snow yet, so I’m not sure how the tire will perform, but I expect they will be below average. I do not find them to be excessively loud and they provide a reasonable ride at highway speed. I don’t think I would buy them in the future. I will probably opt for Michelin’s for a replacement when needed. I expect about 20k of usable life from these tires.

  7. The worst tire for any condition other than forward traction in dry and snow. They seem to have better cornering traction in snow then wet. Cornering over 22 mph is hit or miss with them. Making higher speed maneuvers give you the feeling the car will rotate . They also have really soft sidewall and react to steering input extremely slow, more like driving in sand/grass. Will keep them until 20-25k and get some Michelin Premiers a/s.
