The poor tire center had to mount the tires three times and they still lost air. The tires had to be filled with air once a week. The place I bought them from finally offered a refund and I am going with a different brand.

No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I bought these 60,000 mile tires and now have about 75,000 miles on them on a Isuzu Rodeo. Since I've had them 7 years they're closer to dry-rot than any other problem. These tires are EXCELLENT. <br /><br />However, on my Toyota Sienna ... not as long lasting, I'm not sure why. I always anecdotally though the SUV version had more tread and hence more life.<br /><br />The biggest downside to the SUV version is tires had poor grip on wet pavement.<br /><br />I'm an X-User which means I'll buy PrintMichelin X Radials again for my Toyota Highlander.
