I was disappointed with this purchase. I paid extra to get good tires and found no one would rotate them after 40k miles because there was dry rot and cracking between treads. Purchasing new tires now and only have 50k miles on the michelins. I expected better.

Put these tires on a 2010 Tacoma 4x4 TRD Offroad. Much better than the OEM BFGoodrich's they replaced. I wanted a tire that was truly for all seasons with some offroad capability. The OEM's were fine on road and offroad but were absolutely horrible in the snow/ice. These tires provided same if not better offroad performance and are much improved in the winter time. I recommended this to a friend who also put them on his Tacoma. Both of us noticed less rolling resistance and road noise. Only complaint is that they are a bit expensive but expected when you buy Michelin.<br /><br />Neither of us have experienced the air loss or cracking issues listed by other users. These tires are also now OEM on some stock Fords and Chevys.

Comment:
Installed the tires on my F150 Supercrew as replacement for the awful BF Goodrich OE tires. Was excited to get the tires following reviews by Tire Rack. Very harsh ride seemed worth it given the great performance improvement, especially in winter conditions, over the BF Goodrich tires. However, the tires began to develop hundreds of sidewall cracks that I assume were dry rot at about 20,000 miles. Got worse and worse to the point I no longer believed they were safe. Replaced them with Bridgestone Revo's even though they had at least half tread life remaining. Michelin would not help. I did file a complaint to no avail with NTSB. The REVO's do not perform as well as the Michelins but no cracks so far.
