This note is supplemental to my review of 01/06/17. As if the previously mentioned 2 failures in 7K miles was not annoying enough, the tire that replaced the second failed tire also sustained damage deemed unacceptable to repair only about 200 miles after it was installed. Based on the '3 strikes and you are out' principle I was not about to throw more good money after bad on these tires. As Chevrolet was only willing to sell me a tire identical to the 3 that already failed very prematurely and refused even to concede 3 failures in 7.5K miles is unusual, never mind 2 in 200 miles, I called Goodyear directly. Unlike Chevrolet, Goodyear cares about customer support and satisfaction and replaced all 4 of my Fuel Max tires with far superior TripleTred tires for only $181 more than Chevrolet wanted to charge me for a single untrustworthy Fuel Max tire. Having put 70K+/- miles on a set of previously owned TripleTred tires without a single failure under virtually identical conditions to those I used the Fuel Max tires under I can say with confidence that they are much better tires for rain and snow and only very slightly noisier and rougher than the otherwise inferior Fuel Max.
My first (and probably last) Michelin experience. Worst winter tires I ever had, most of allseasons better on snow than this junk, and I'm not talking about deep snow, 1-2 inches of snow on the road and you have no chance of stopping or have any traction. Will never buy Michelin again.
