Comment:
I was surprised to see so many negative comments for these tires. I own a '97 Sebring convertible- bought new in '96 (now my second car). The car came with MXVs. When it was time to replace them, tire retailer convinced me he had a quieter tire with better performance. After 30 days on the new tires (can't recall what brand or model they were), I went back to the retailer and told him they were (1) noisier and (2) didn't handle as well. They replaced them with new MXVs, no charge. Since then, no problem. I have not had any of the complaints others have written about. Maybe I was lucky twice? If still available when it's time for another set of tires, I'll buy them again.

Comment:
Rotated tires every 4 to 5000 miles. Average driver and noticed the tires constantly squeaked when turning at any speed. Tire were original equipment. Had to refill front tire twice a month. As tread wear reduced the comfort of the ride decreased and the noise increased. Noticed excessive tire markings in driveway from turning the wheel. Now I have to buy new tires and don' t trust research here at CR. Any suggestions for Camery SE?

Comment:
These were replacement tires on my 2011 Kia Sorento. I've had very good luck with Michelin in the past on a Ram Pick-up, but after 2 years and only 20,000 miles, these tires are just about worn out. Michelin does provide a pro-rated warranty on wear, but cashing in on it means buying another set of them or BF Goodrich, which they also own. Not sure what I'm going to do. Decent performance, but don't expect much tire life.
