I also have 235/70/R16 Michelin ltx at2 on my 2009 outlander and have observed a fuel efficiency decrease of 1.5 kmpl post installation. However road noise is down to the bare minimum post installation.

Hi,

Whats your FE?

I am on Geolander 215/70 R16 and get 6.5-7 in peak hour traffic and 7.75-8 driving late nights.I drive really light foot- try to be in range of 50-70 at night.

But the ride is harsh on these tyres!!

My fuel efficiency is also between 6-7 on a tankful of gas. However I am sure it has declined as compared to what it was before as I was tracking the same.
The Michelin's are low noise and the ride quality and steering feel( was a bit hard earlier) is much better on these. But I am not too sure about the long term impact of this upsize on the suspension as it is an upsize beyond recommendation

Another happy user of 235/70/R16 LTX-AT2, 5 rallies and still strong tread but given this year's Raid route going for change tomorrow. Mitsubishi Outlander is amazing! I get 9-10 kmpl every tankful (but mine is mostly expressway usage). The worst I have seen is 6-5.5 during rallies. No complaints...many rallies to go

Hi Kanny, was wondering if you are interested in selling your Outlander? I can't seem to PM you so posting here. Thanks

Hi am using Falken Wildpeak H/T 235/70R16.

Been working good for me since the last two years, specially with road conditions in most of our cities.

Might make the steering feel slightly heavier, but the tyres look brute and have a replacement warranty against cuts too.

Impact on average was about 1km less, but that could be due to increased traffic and wait time at signals too.

I think the rubbers cost me about 6k each.
