Comment:
Watch ride comfort at 40000 miles, it becomes a harder ride , not as soft as when less then 40k! Tires were only 30 months old and not really subject to age and extreme weather conditions.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

I drive a 17 year old Toyota Full Size Pickup with 250,000 miles on it. I was in need of a great set of tires for it as this truck is my baby. I looked and priced all the other major brand name tires and nobody matched the performance of the Michelin tire. I knew I made the right decision within 5 minutes and half a mile. The truck drives, handles and rides so much better. It feels more like a truck with 50,000 mile on it now. I could not be more pleased.
How long have you owned it:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

I put these on my wife's 2009 Chevy Traverse. It made an amazing difference over the Goodyears that it came with. They made it drive so much better. No more sitting and spinning in the rain at a stoplight. They are a slightly larger size than stock (18/65-255 vs 18/65-265) but grip and drive so much better. We also drove from Indiana to NY and back and they felt great. Hard winter so far this year and they perform very well in ice and snow. Expensive but worth every penny so far.
