The Michelin LTX M/S tire is designed for light truck / SUV crossovers so it may ride a bit harsher than typical all-season tires used in passenger vehicles. This trait probably won’t change over time. Adjusting the tire pressure within a certain safe range might help a bit.Hello all, just bought some Michelin Defender LTX tires, seems the ride is pretty rough
Seems as though there might be a pre-existing condition:Post the Pilot year and trim for accurate internet discussion. Start with the recommended tire pressures usually posted in door jam or owners manual, get a good tire pressure gauge. Depending upon the age of the Pilot perhaps shocks/struts or suspension components are worn etc.
Same tires here. The door says 32psi but I always run mine at 34 psi. I had the Michelin Latitudes before. The Latitudes do afford a softer ride and quieter too. My 2005 Pilot has lousy road noise and wind noise isolation. I drove a 2020 Subaru Forester and felt like I was in a hearing test booth almost.Do you mean lower the air pressure? Right now they are running around 35 psi cold
