I drive a Toyota 4Runner 4wd and replaced my Michelins with new LTX M/S 265/16's. They have been a fantastic purchase and would recommend. If you drive a vehicle hard, fast turns, you can prematurely wear out any tire.

Michelin Defender tires should be named Indefensible instead of Defender. Overrated and overpriced. Just had to replace set on daughter's Honda Accord at 33,000 miles. The treads were down near the 3/32 minimum and two had separations in the sidewalls causing bubbles which were ready to pop. The tires are kept inflated to specs all the time, rotated every 3000 miles and the alignment checked regularly. Have a set on my Buick LeSabre with 20,000 miles on them and it will be a miracle if they make it to 30,000. Would not even consider Michelins on a skateboard. Very poor cost per mile ratio.

Original review: July 31, 2018

I was told by a Ford dealership first part of July that my Ford Escape Titanium 2015 needed 4 new tires. I was quite surprised as the car had less than 35,000 miles. The vehicle had the original Michelin tires on it and had been rotated and serviced according to schedule. With an upcoming road trip, I was a bit worried about the tires. I called Michelin Customer Care on July 11, 2018 to express my disappointment in tires that had all worn out in the same place.

I was asked to hold on until they made a call to Virginia Beach which was to Merchant’s Tire on Independence. They came back on and gave me the tire center I needed to go to and speak with Jim. When I arrived I wad told Jim was out but anyone could do the inspection. No price was given to me. Only told, "Yes your tires are all worn out in the same place. We will pass the info to Michelin and they will be in touch with you." Never received a call from anyone so I purchased my own tires on July 20. My point very poor customer service on the part of both as well as very poor quality tires that didn't make it for their 35th birthday. My recommendation is don’t buy Michelin tires. No accountability for getting back with dissatisfied customer and basically could care less.

Michelin Light Duty R265/60R18 LTX MS2 Tires - Purchased 4 tires in late 2013 for $298.00 each. These were supposed to be the top of the line tires from Michelin. 35,000 miles later, chunks of rubber, low air pressure, dry rot. Plain and simple. Manufacturing defect that Michelin will not accept. The same recall on a different DOT number. I have always purchased this brand, but NO MORE. Quality has gone downhill. I will definitely do research before my next set of tires. I do no recommend MICHELIN to NO ONE. Replaced the 2 back tires for the same defects in late 2017. I will say one thing to the customer care employees: they are trained very well to support a bad product.

I paid big bucks for 2 the steer tires (Michelin RV truck tires XZE 245/70R 19.5) and the 4 rear drive tires and Michelin has produced a failure tire. Sidewall cracking beyond believe of these tires even though I covered them in less than 2 years it showed considerable cracking and have removed them from my coach and will do the same with the backs as soon as I can. PAID $3500. cdn dollars out the door for (I thought was the top of the line). They are NOT worth the hype... Based on my experience I DO NOT recommend Michelin. I believe these tires are made offshore now... DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH.

The first time I bought Michelin tires I noticed how they stop in shorter distances, ride better, and last for longer mileages. I would recommend them and would only trust them on my family cars and trucks. I know they’ll perform in any situation as I’ve used them for over 40 years. Trust Michelin!

Original review: July 10, 2018

These Michelin Premier LTX tires came as Original Equipment tires on my 2018 Chevy Equinox. When I took the car to the dealer for an oil change at 19,000 miles, they informed me that one of the tires had only 1/32nd inch of tread and the other 3 were at 3/32dn's, and all needed to be replaced. Michelin rates these tires for 60,000 miles treadwear, however they changed their warranty in August 2017 to exclude any tires that come on new vehicles as Original Equipment. I have had good performance from Michelin tire in the past, but I will never buy them again. Buyers of new cars BEWARE!

Original review: July 9, 2018

On June 29, 2018 my husband and I were traveling to Myrtle Beach, S.C. Halfway there I heard a pop and then another noise. I noticed a black thing hitting the driver's side mirror. Then we spun twice on the interstate and down the median. Spun again before stopping. We bought the best Michelin Tires. They are made so poorly the tread peeled off, hit the underside panel then shot up and hit the mirror. Do not buy Michelin tires. This could have been so much worst. This was so scary. Michelin has not excuse to make such garbage tire. Everyone of the tires were in the process of peeling. I had to purchase four new tires. I am taking this one step further since there was no recall. Just not right!

I purchased 4 Michelin tires 2 mos ago for my Lexus ES 350 which I bought at BJ's warehouse. I got a nail in one of my tires 2 wks after that & brought it back to BJ's where it was fixed at no cost to me. I'm very happy with the tires and warranty.

These tires were expensive and loud and mushy. I felt every bump and can't understand why they were recommended. I drive a 2009 RAV 4 and this brand was recommended for this vehicle. Michelin tires are overrated.

I would only trust my family to Michelin, I only purchase Michelin tires, and never ask for anything but Michelin. The tires by Michelin wear the best, perform the best, ride the best and give you peace of mind.

This tire is great, which the price is too expensive. I have to buy two tires at a time, if I find a coupon or promotion. I'm looking now to store them before I hit the highway.

I have used Michelin Tires for years and I have been very pleased with performance. As to warranty I usually purchase them from COSTCO and they are very great with manufacture warranty as well as their own. As to value they are on the higher end of the spectrum of price.

I have tried less expensive tires and found that within a year or so they wear considerably. The Michelins I can feel hugging the road especially in curves and wet weather. The old saying applies with tires "You get what you pay for".

I always seem to get Michelin with my Hondas and they always perform well. It's just that they are a bit expensive. But I will likely continue with them.

These tires have 60000 miles and still look and ride great. I can probably get another 10000 miles out of them. Overall, I believe Michelin makes one of the highest performing tires.

Smooth stable ride either on highway, interstate or city roads. Very durable with various road hazards and debris. I can always count on around 70 to 80,000 miles.

I did lots of research before purchasing tires, Michelin Tires has been the smoothest ride of any tire I have owned. These have been so satisfactory that I have installed this same tire on two other vehicles.

I bought this brand at Costco when they had a special. Good performance and holds the road. With this brand no more Goodyear for me. My store does free rotation.

I’ve used Michelin tires for years and they have been a great tire. The only bad is the costs. Continental has the worse tire life. Michelin tires are a comfortable ride.

I've got almost 60,000 mi. on my Michelins, mounted on a Highlander. Still have about 30% tread left. I've never gotten stuck or felt not in control with these tires. Part of it is my Toyota, but the tires make all the difference compared to other tires I've had on. I would run nothing but Michelin.

I have learned through experience that if you are having problems with the tires that come on your car, Michelins will solve the problems. This has been true on an Expedition, 2 Lin. Continentals, a Prius and 3 E150 vans.

I have had Michelin tires for my last 5 or 6 vehicles. I always made sure my cars had Michelin tires when I bought them and always replaced them with Michelin tires. My first few cars didn’t have Michelin tires and they had to be replaced quickly. After I had my first set of Michelin tires, and realized how long they lasted and the total overall amount I spent on Michelin’s was much less than I had spent on other brands because of longevity I was sold!

I have depended on the Michelin Tires as a good brand name/use tire. Except for Goodyear which I rank 2nd, I would not consider using the other brand name tires on my vehicle. One name brand I had a very bad experience with a blowout many years ago.

Paid a few dollars more than other brands but was worth it. I got almost 70k miles out of my MXV tires. Would buy again. I bought from Costco and rotation was included. Great place to buy from.

We have a 2017 GMC Terrain and had to replace two tires in 15 months at almost $400.00 a pop. That seems awful. They both blew out the sides while highway driving.

These are my second set of these on my 2004 Hyundai. They have been great tires, but it is time for another set. I have been looking around for the same tire but have only found similar. When you have a good thing, why change?

I’ve had 2 sets of Michelin MS-2 10 ply tires which lasted over 125,000 miles. Very good warranty service on those 2 sets. I was an expediter hauling freight between cities with my sprinter van. To me safety and confidence was paramount riding on tires, especially during the winter months are up north.

Original review: June 27, 2018

I have always loved Michelin tires. In November of 2016 I bought a set of Defender tires for my Camry. I have about 28,000 miles on the tires and half my tread is gone. These are warranted for 60,000 miles. I rotate these tires every 5,000 miles, adjust pressure due to temperature changes, so very little braking since these are mostly road miles. I am very disappointed in their performance. The dealership is estimating I may get 45,000 on these. I honestly don't know if I will buy Michelin again. Michelin used to be higher in price point, but were worth the money. Now it looks like they are going for average, but with the higher price point.
