After 38,000 miles on my AWD Volvo I've been told that two of the tires are unsafe due to worn tread. They've been regularly rotated, etc... Very disappointed!

I don't believe in writing s tire review until the set has a substantial number of miles. These Michelins were the first replacement for OEMs of another brand, which just made their rated mileage of 40,000 on a 2008 Toyota Avalon. These replacement Michelins now have 50,000 with enough tread left to go the rated 60,000, though they'll need to be swapped out before the next Midwestern winter. They've made several road trips to Florida, Texas and the Rockies and all-around have been the most trouble-free among all the tires i've owned in nearly a million miles of lifetime driving. Life is too short to put up with the aggravation of bad tires and failures on the road. I've never been disappointed by Michelin.

Tires 3/4 worn out @ 20k. Balanced and rotated every 5k. Parked car, tires fine, come out next day tire flat. Took off to have repaired, and unable to as chords were broken. Wife and I drive 70k per year, for 30 years and never had a worse tire. Too make matters worse, now must throw away 3 tires due to defective 4th as on Honda Pilot awd. Honda dealer unwilling to be of any help either.
