              Very dependable tires. I don't use any other brands but Michelin. I put them on my car and my daughters. Warrenty is great. My daughter ran over a nail and tire was replaced with no charge.

              Great tire

                    I recently purchased four Michelin tires for my Honda Accord(previously did not have Michelins), after about 6 or so weeks of having them i can already see the difference. they require me to put pressure in them much less often and seem to have great traction in all conditions experienced so far. I live in Ny where the snow gets pretty bad during the winter so we will see how they run this winter in the snow, i have had issues in the past getting out of my driveway because of snow conditions even when it was plowed, i live out in the country and my driveway is just gravel. so hopefully they will be able to get me out of the driveway for work better than my previous tires. thus far i have not found anything negitave about them. great tire for the price!

                    BEST TIRE FOR THE JOB

                          As a young married woman, I found Michelin's to be the best tire for the area that we live in (East Tennessee Smoky Mountains). Time and time again I've purchased Michelin tires. They are excellent. In 1985 I had the misfortune to put a less superior tire on my car and I ended up sliding off the road. I said never again would I drive on anything but Michelins. In July we purchased our granddaughter a new car and I told her that very same day to always buy Michelins. Just can't say enough about the supervior quality of a Michelin tire. Highly recommend them.
