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.

Comment:
Tire was manufactured in March of 2013.They were on the truck and the dealer said the where added for saleability reasons. I feel that they were NEW. After four month one of the tires stared to leek air. On the 2nd trip back to dealer they found a leek at the SIDEWALL & TREADseam. So small you can not see it without soapy water.Dealer would come off the price $50 . Michelin wood do nothing.This has to be a defect.

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.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
