Comment:
2010 Avalon Limited. Replaced Michelin MXV4 OEM tires at 67,000 miles. They still had about 10,000 miles left but I couldn't take any more of their only average ride, handling and poor grip. They seemed like they'd never wear out but I couldn't take any more. Replaced with Continental ProContact 94V tires. Everything about the tire was very good except tread wear. Now 91,000 and the tread depth is down to 3/32. So much for the 45,000 mile Tread Wearout Coverage. Am replacing with Pirelli Cinturato P7 94V All Season Plus.
