I have these BFG Comp 2 Tires for a few months now in 2020 and they are great, awesome wet and dry handling. No fear going into turns with my heavy BMW 550i GT. Great tire. Great price and also looks good.
I bought a set of Michelin tires April 5, 2021. I really like the tires. There was a $120 virtual rebate card offered with the purchase of the tires. I submitted the rebate on April 8th. It's May 25th and still no rebate. Every time I call I get told a different story. I was assured it would be issued last Thursday. When I called to check why I didn't receive it I was informed it would be another 2 weeks. What lousy customer service. Nothing like having your money held hostage so they can collect interest on it. From now on I will only buy tires from Goodyear.

Bought new Michelin Defenders when original tires work out on 2018 Sierra 2500 HD. Worked great until hooked up Camp Trailer and headed South. Made it 120 miles down the freeway and couldn't go over 60 mph. It was like driving on jello, my wife was in tears and I refused to go any further. Had to stop and buy another brand of tires to continue trip. Tires only had 1705 miles on them. Michelin refused to due anything after the fact since I replaced them with a competitors tire. I have always had Michelin tires on every vehicle until now. This experience has really changed my thinking. I would not have believed it if I hadn't experienced it myself. The tire size with the problem is LT265/60R20.
Have been a Michelin consumer for 40+ years. Have had excellent service. The tires on my VW TDI BEETLE before the present ones had 100,000+ miles on them. Only reason replaced was cracked in sidewalls, tread still good. However the present Defender tires only have approximately 60,000 and rear tire tread won't pass and front tires are close. Very disappointed. Will have them all replaced. Told Michelin Defender still best for my VW TDI Beetle 2005. Had alignment and rotations done.
On 8/30/2017 my 2017 Lexus Rx 350 SUV was delivered by Fresno Lexus with original and new Michelin 235/55R20 Premium LTX tires. Today on 12/7/2020 total milage on the SUV is only 26,750 but treads on each of the 4 tires is worn down to 2/32. So in spite of regular tire rotations and relatively low milage the effective tread life of these premium and expensive Michelin tires is less than 25k compared to 60 k warranty. I have read quite a few other customer reports of less than 50% effective lifespan of these tires. I wonder if 2017 was a bad year due to materials used in manufacture of these particular tires. Wondering if I should buy these again in 2020 to replace the current worn-out ones. I will be filing a warranty claim with Michelin.
Please read! IF you have Michelin tires and have a vibration while driving have the shop put the vehicle on a lift and have them watch the tires as they spin! If they move up and down or side to side the tires are out of round and no matter how many times you try to balance them the issue will not go away! I previously has issues with the Michelin Premier LTX tires for my 2007 4runner, Will add the old review for those tires. But I had those brand new tires removed because 3 out of 4 were out of round meaning they would move up and down and side to side when spinning on a lift in 4 wheel drive. So, went to these and 2 out of the 4 had the same issue, BRAND NEW TIRES! Michelin tires are now terrible out of round garbage! ALL OF THEM!
Here is my review on the other tires. I had 61,749 miles on the truck, I had to replace these tires 3 years later when I had 72,818 miles on the truck. So, like an idiot I bought 4 more of the same. Spent yet again over 1,000$. Not even 50 miles later took it back because of a shake and vibration, another balance over and over for 3 weeks the same thing.
The truck was put on a lift running in 4 wheel drive and you could see the tires moving up and down and side to side. So, Michelin what are you going to do about me losing and spending over 1,000 on your garbage tires?? I have all the documentation to back ALL of this up, so Michelin if you want to see it I would be happy to provide it to you!
Bought these at Discount Tires in November 2019 (less than 1 year ago) and I have less than 11K miles on them. They are worn down to the warning level. I can't believe a tire with a life expectancy of 60K miles is nearly done at less than 11K! Sales guy told me today that they knew when I bought these that they do not wear well. Had they told me that when I bought them, I would have opted for the second best recommended tire. Discount Tires won't replace them because they aren't completely wore to baldness.
They did offer to give me less than 1/3 of what I paid for them, which is a joke. My sister purchased the same tires and they wore just as badly. She received 2/3 of her cost back towards a new set of tires. I live in Colorado and good tires are important for winter driving. Now I will be taking my chances on the road because companies (Discount Tires) won't stand behind the products and I can't afford to fork over another $1100 for new tires. Do not buy these tires! It's been years since I purchased Michelin Tires and I know I will never make that mistake again.
Purchased 4 tires 8.2019. In for service 8.2020 and told 2/4 needed replacement? Tread-wear gone. Proper servicing and alignment done, etc. This is the 2nd set of tires on this vehicle, same driver, same dealer, garage kept. Last 2 sets lasted 40,000 miles EACH and they were much less than Michelin. Expected a lot more for my money! They want to prorate at a cost of $200 per tire for a replacement? I haven't even owned them a year. Have tried multiple times to contact Michelin via phone, chat, letters and email. No help without case number. Same methods of contacting dealer. 0 customer help from either party despite all contact.
After leaving a couple of bad reviews on some websites, lo and behold Jon from Michelin called me to apologize and sent me a check for $540.00 to offset the cost of replacing the tires. I appreciate Michelin making the situation right, and will consider them next time I need to replace my tires.
I had purchased a 2018 Dodge Durango SXT AWD for my wife in October 2017. The vehicle came with Michelin Premier LTX 265/60R18. As a retired Air Force Ground Equipment Mechanic, I am mechanically savvy and perform all my own vehicle maintenance to the extent I can, which includes checking the tire pressure monthly, and rotating the tires every ~5000 miles. I was meticulous about this since it's my wife's vehicle and she uses it to transport our 3 children, and their safety is very important to me.
On 7/5/2020, I was getting ready to rotate the tires and check the pressure when I noticed that huge chunks were missing from all 4 tires down to the thread in some cases! This came as a shock to me since the tires only had 33,469 miles on them and are warrantied for up to 60,000 miles. I had them replaced with Bridgestone Dueler LTH 265/60R18 since I questioned the quality of the Michelin Premier LTX 265/60R18.
I then returned the original defective tires to the dealership which I purchased the vehicle from to see if could get some compensation for having to purchase. They were hesitant to help, but I demanded that they accommodate my request. They contacted Michelin (case # **) and informed me that Michelin would not entertain my request for a warranty compensation because I did not replace their inferior tires with another set of inferior. I wish I could upload pictures so everyone can see what garbage their tires are. I will never buy another Michelin tire as longs as I live. They do not stand by the product and they are garbage.
Purchased 4 new Michelin LTX All Season Luxury SUV tires on May 5, 2018 at Costco. These tires have a 60,000 mile warranty. After 31,000 miles, there is almost no tread left on all tires. Very dissatisfied with mileage and Michelin. After seeing similar complaints on this site, it sounds like Michelin is not making quality tires anymore.
Worst experience I've ever had with tires AND customer service! I usually never complain on these websites so this is my first time doing this. 2017 Michelin tires wore through on my GMC Acadia at only 30,000 miles! In December 2019, Customer Service Rep (Kylie) told me I`d get reimbursed through the Warranty and nothing has happened since. It`s been almost FIVE MONTHS and no check in the mail.
Additionally, I spoke to John in South Carolina at Michelin HQ on 4/20/20 who seemed to be the most knowledgeable person so far and he assured me that he handled my situation. I still don`t have my check! During the last five months I also spoke to Jessica, Debra, Brianna and many other Michelin Customer Service reps - they all told me my check is in the mail. Now it`s May 30th and still no check. If this is not remedied, I will never buy another Michelin tire again and I`ll continue to post on Instagram and Facebook as well as tell all my friends about this horrible experience as well. I`ll need to find a competitor for tires in the future. Please call me directly when this check is in the mail. -Joshua **
