The absolute worst tire I have ever owned. Seriously this tire should be taken off of the market. You will hydroplane, your car will handle like a brick and do not even think of venturing out in the snow. The good news is you will not have to put up with them for long because at 12,000 miles they will be bald. Don't bother rotating them, getting the car aligned or checking the air pressure because it makes no difference with this tire. Now another fine attribute of this tire....IT IS THE NOISIEST TIRE EVER MADE! I am talking turn the radio all the way up and still you will not hear a song NOISE!
When I bought these tires they were rated 50,000 miles and I am now at 56,700 miles and I will need to replace in next 2-3 months. I have driven in all conditions from the Rockies in winter to heavy rain on California Coast. It has handled well but heavy cornering is not recommend with these tires. Only recently has ride declined and gotten a bit rough. Rotated every 7500 and wear is dead even on all tires.
Just bought these . I was talked into these vs. the Energy Saver A/S because the ES's were not in stock. They gave me the Latitude tires at the same price. I have 08 Honda CRV
basically tire manufactures make garbage, cheap versions of their tires that they sell to dealerships under the conditions that no manufacture warrantee of any kind exist.. and the dealerships sign a contract that they wont hold them libel for any issues. So when you buy a new car your getting the worst tires with a name brand imaginable, and the dealers make you sign some fine print (which you didn't notice) that says the dealership is not responsible for the tires. (so when something goes wrong you call the dealer and they say call the tire manufacturer, when you call the manufacturer they say call the dealer and round and round)
SO.... when your sleezy dealership tires run out at 19-25k miles people write bad reviews about the tires brand and model, not realizing that the company made alternate versions of them especially terrible just to help the dealerships rip you off. (real integrity i tell ya)
That being said, its impossible to get an honest review on line - you must buy new tires with warrantee and see what happens. The only thing that matters at that point is customer service and if they stand by the product untill you hit 65k miles like they promise the tire will get.
Well, I'm on mile 20 with these now, so hopefully they last, OR when they turn out to be all marketing and fluff out, Michelin will do the right thing and throw a few bucks of their multi million dollar sales and marketing budget into making a customer feel that brand loyalty is possible in this industry... Yea I'm not holding my breath, but for now they get the benefit of the doubt.
Disappointed in these tires. They got real noisy after 25,000km. They have 57,000 Km on them now and they need to be replaced - they will never reach the 95,000 manufacturer's rating. Additionally, they have lost their grip in snow. We live in Ontario.
