Comment:
OEM on 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited. At 25,000 miles, the tread is approaching the wear bars. I have had more than 10 punctures from stones and minor road debris in 25k miles. Of all of those flats, Michelin gave me a $70 check for a $200 tire with 17,000 miles on it that developed a huge bubble in the center of the tread from delamination. My previous Grand Cherokees came with Good Year tires and those typically lasted 75,000 miles with maybe 1 or 2 flats from road debris in that timeframe (I drive a lot of miles - 35-50k/year). My driving pattern has not changed in the last 15 years. I remember a time when Michelins were the best but if this is what they are about now, I won't be replacing these with Michelins.

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.
