I ran over a nail into the sidewall of the factory Continental tires. I'm think about not just replacing that one tire, but swapping the set. I'm looking at the Michelin CrossClimate2 tires. IF you have these tires, what's been your experience?

Here are the specs on the tires I'm looking at: 245/45/R20

Don’t have them, but just put new tires on our Cadillac. We liked those tires for their rain shedding ability, however they are uni-directional, so keep that in mind. We ended up going with the Michelin Primacy. Better overall. Costco had $150 off on a set of 4.

No personal experience with these, but I looked hard at them and although they perform great, a lot of reviews from folks with EVs said they took a noticeable range hit, FWIW.

I read more about the tires. The drop in the range is during the tires break-in period, and then it apparently comes back up. The range drop has to do with the tire having more grip on the road and thus affects drag.

Another question - I believe I'll need to replace the TPMS sensor on the damaged tire since I used the tire repair kit on it (white stuff), do I need to replace the other 3 or no?

No need to replace the other 3.
