On a previous car I owned I had Kumho's and they were noticeably louder than any other tire I had. The Michelin's are what we have on our volt and are quiet.
Which Michelins do you have? Has your economy been affected? Now that I look again, the Premier A/S's only come in 195's not 185's. I use Michelins on most my other cars, but most don't come in the right size, especially any LRR ones. I think the X-ice are the only ones that come in the right size, but I don't think it's a good choice for all-year. Also, were the Kumhos, the Solus TA31 series or a different one? Thanks for the reply.

My 2015 Spark EV is currently using General Altamax 43 as summer tires. I think they are way better than the Ecopia EP422. With Altamax, my spark has much better grip and control, and is also quiter too. I also think the thread life of these General tires is good.
For winter tires, I use Michellin X-ice. These winter tires make my winter driving in Northern Ohio's snow and ice safe and fun.
Thanks. The Altimax sounds like a good improvement and nice compromise. I've been leaning towards the Altimax or the Kumhos, probably the Altimax. They're listed as all-season. I'm on Long Island, New York. The winters are usually pretty mild, at least by comparison, so I won't bother with snow tires. How has your economy been affected, better, worse, same? How long have you had them? Wearing OK too? Thanks very much for the info.
I am also still curious about the uniroyal tiger paw touring a/s's. On paper they look good, and the right size, but I haven't seen them mentioned anywhere for Sparks or other EVs.
