Comment:
Approaching 50,000 miles on these tires and they have at least 10,000 more miles left to run on.<br />I check the pressure every 4 weeks and maintain 35psi, rotating them front to back only (always kept on 1 side of my 2007 CRV 4WD) every 8,000-9,000 miles. No problems at all, even wear. I'll replace them with the same before 60,000 miles only because although the tread depth would remain legal for another 10,000 miles, I got my money's worth out of these already and I prefer more tread depth in snow and slush.<br />If I didn't live in PA which has the worst roads in the nation, these tires would likely have enough tread for this winter too.

Original tire on our 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee. 24,000 miles and tires are wore down to ware bars. Tires were rotated every 6000 miles. Very poor in snow conditions.

Comment:
These tires came standard on 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee. At 29K miles there's very little tread left. Michelin's rating is for 65K miles! Internet search turns up poor tread life and out of round issues.
