Terrible tire

Comment:
Tires came with new F150 less than 3 weeks ago. On our first trip one tire went completely flat. There was a hole near the seam. The dealer said we had caused it. On the trip back 3 of the remaining tires lost 10-15 psi of pressure. Less than 3 days later a second tire went completely flat and a hole was found in exactly the same place as the other. Again the other 2 new tires have slowly begun to loose pressure. I will be replacing them with another brand as neither the dealer or Micheline have been of any assistance.

Installed on a 2007 Honda Ridgeline. 58,000 miles on the tires now and still 1/2 tread.Beyond excellent traction in the wet. These are driven about 70% high speed highway (80+ MPH), 10% city, 20% off road in mines and quarries.

Comment:
These tires (275/65x20) came equipped on a 2011 F-250 King Ranch Crew Cab. This vehicle is parked outside in all weather in Alexandria, VA. The vehicle is primarily used to drive between VA and MI several times a year, with a total of 39k miles in just under 4 years. This is not a daily driver vehicle but may be used occasionally on the weekend in the city if not driven to rural MI.<br /><br />I am a conscientious driver and vehicle owner who follows manufacturers' guidelines. As such I examine the tires for proper inflation, rotation and alignment. I also use tire cleaner to help protect the tire from the elements.<br /><br />I have found these tires to be very suitable for my application. The tires are quiet on the highway; maintain traction in wet conditions quite well; handle well in congested DC traffic; and maintained good traction in snow 10-12 inches deep in four wheel drive. The tire performed well in snow as the siping picked up snow to gain traction. Tire wear has been acceptable for my style of driving. I anticipate getting an addition 20-25k miles yet on this set of tires (total = 60-65k miles).<br /><br />At about 3 years and 8 months I began to notice cracking in the tire just outside of the bead of the tires/wheels. I don't find this surprising as the vehicle sets outside year round in direct exposure to the sun as well as the occasional snow plow dispensing salt, with temperatures varying between 0-95 degrees fahrenheit throughout the year. I don't feel this cracking is a threat to the integrity of the tire at this time. I've experienced this same exposure related minimal cracking on various tire brands without any negative long term effect.<br /><br />I also noticed that the tire pressure (62 PSI) seems to have maintained much better than a different brand of tire on a different make SUV when the weather suddenly got colder. I'm unsure as to the reason for this, but suspect it may have something to do with the quality of the tire inflation stem.<br /><br />I am satisfied overall with the performance of this tire and will seriously consider it when deciding a replacement.
