Comment:
Have put 75000 miles on these tires in just over 4 years. Went to a repair shop to have a screw removed that we had run over and were told that the tires are so badly dry rotted that they would not dismount the tire to do the repair. These were expensive tires and I'd expect better quality for Michelin

Comment:
I live in Colorado and have had Michelin M/S1 tires on my Cherokee in the past, which were great on dry roads but not very good in the snow. Then I switched to Cooper Discoverer, which were less expensive and much better in the snow with siping done by the tire shop. After getting an unrepairable screw in one of the Coopers I was able to pick up a set of four used M/S2 with only 50 miles on them. I drove up to the ski resort the day after, although the roads were dry, and they handle much better than the Coopers. Will probably have to wait until next fall to check out the snow performance.

Comment:
Dealer recommended them 72,000 miles ago.<br />I will definitely buy again. The Lexus GX470 was horrible in the snow and not the best handling. The Mich LTX M/s2 were a game changer. It amazes me that a premium car company does not have them on the vehicle out of the factory.
