I need new tires for my 06 Mercury Montigo (18") Should I buy the Big O Tires Euro tire (by the way, who makes this tire for Big O?) or the Michelin Hydro Edge. I drive 50K a yr of mainly interstate miles @ 75mph. Smoothness and quietness of ride are my absolute requirements.

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Denise Koeth, Managing Editor at Tire Review Magazine Based on the high amount of miles you drive each year, you may want to go with the Michelins. They cost more, but will probably last longer under your driving conditions. Big O is a private brand tire that is actually manufactured by Kelly. Kelly is a subsidiary of Goodyear. I*m not saying the Big O tires aren*t good quality. I*m just recommending the higher-priced, premium Michelins for your needs.
