Remington Emerald LX

Remington Emerald LX

by Andrey
(Sacramento, CA, USA)

I got a new set of Remington Emerald LX tires for 2001 Ford Windstar, size 205/70/R15. 95S-weight/speed rated, Treadwear 700, Traction AA, Temp B.


There is still about 50% thread left on them, but they are all out-of-round/out-of-shape already. Vehicle rides terrible,wobbles starting at low speeds and vibrates with an increase of speed.

Driving at 70mph feels like wheels are going to fall off, AND THAT'S RIMS IN PERFECT SHAPE AND TIRES PERFECTLY BALLANCED AGAIN. When those tires were spinning on the balance machine it was very noticeable that they were not round anymore.

Personal opinion: I think these tires are poorly designed. They are not made well enough to last their life, until the thread wears out on them.

Compare to Bridgestone or Continental - worn out, bald tires were still in perfect geometrical shape until the wire starts showing and they would still ride without vibration.

Editorial Comment

This is not an attempt to defend these tires, so don't read anything like that into what I'm about to say, but sometimes even good tires can be given a bum rap by people blaming the tires for problems that could have been avoided by just taking reasonable precautions.

If you don't want to go to the bother and expense of replacing these Remington Emerald LX tires for something you think would be better, then make a point of checking your tires more frequently and being pro-active in making sure you keep the right pressure, that the tires are blanced and that your alignment and shocks are in good shape. Also rotate your tires on a regular basis. All these things will extend the life of ANY tire and you may be surprised at the good service you get from these if you follow these steps.
