Really satisfied with this tire. Tire over 4 years old and has 55000 miles. Rotate tires every 5000 miles and feel that makes a big difference. Replacing with the same tire. Highly recommend this tire but to get good mileage you have to rotate the tires.

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

They came standard on my Jeep Grand Cherokee. <br /><br />I have 45,000 mostly highway miles on these tires and they need replacement NOW as they are no longer safe in either snow or even moderate rainfall. I've maintained them and the entire vehicle to perfection so they simply don't last until their claimed 65,000 miles. I know two other people with the same tires and they are also replacing their tires in the low to mid 40,000 mile range. The 65,000 wear claim is bogus from my experience.<br /><br />When they were new (or nearly new) they have some strong positives but also some significant negatives related to their all weather capabilities. I can see why they test well initially but a major reason you buy an SUV is for poor weather capability and these tires are really just average in that regard. <br /><br />All things considered I rated them as average but considering their price they don't present a very strong value proposition.

Comment:
Was expecting more. Previously a loyal advocate for the Michelin Latitude Tour HP 255/55R18 on our 2009 Acura MDX. Replaced with the same. Great handling in the summer and winter up in Vermont. Car now at 98,000 miles and going well. Cannot be said for the Michelin tires. Last two I replaced have under 25,000 miles and worse wear than the two with almost 50,000. Need to replace all four now and will not return to this Michelin tire. Clearly something changed - warranty has exclusions and so far impossible to have Michelin honor or even acknowledge an unreasonable amount of wear. Multiple auto repair shops and costco tire locations are consistent - this tire is not worth the money.
