I don't like these tires. I've had the balance rechecked but they still viabrate/bounce at highway speeds. My previous Michelins spoiled me. The dealer just tells me that they're firmer but no tire should feel this way.

Have tires on my Nissan Xterra. After 52000 miles tires still have plenty of tread and perform well. Probably have another 10000 miles left.

I bought my 04 Nissan Titan used with 35000 miles on it, and it came with these tires. These were the 2nd set of tires for this truck, the OEM's were Goodyear Wrangler SR-A. The tires were recently replaced when I purchased the truck, so I estimate they have less than 40000 miles on them now, as my truck is currently at 71000 miles. <br />Because they are the only set of tires I have driven on this truck, I can't compare the handling and ride comfort, etc... I will say they do not inspire confidence. The tread ware has not been bad (currently at 6/32), so I could probably get another 15000 before I'm at the 3/32 recommended replacement stage. With that said, I'm ready for a new set of tires now, because the tread on the front two are looking chewed up, and the sidewalls on all four are cracking. Although I do regularly check and adjust the tire pressure, I admit, I have not kept up with tire rotations. Regular tire rotations would have probably reduced the chewing of the front tires, but has nothing to do with the cracking sidewalls. I think CR is spot on with there review. These tires are just middle of the road. I will probably replace these with the Hankook Dynapro HT based on CR reviews.
