          I'm just a reg joe and this first season I'm very happy with the tires. I did get a rebate which did help in the decision making.

          Sidewall split

                The tires have a nice smooth ride. Unfortunately they wear too prematurely. I am by no means an aggressive driver.
                I picked up a nail and had a repair done. 5 days later the inside sidewall split.

                Ride Is Not As Good As Previous Tires

                      These tires were installed on a 2011 Avalon on August 29, 2013 and currently have been driven 4,151 miles. The installation was done at an Authorized Michelin Dealer and an alignment was completed at the same time.

                      It appears to me that the ride is somewhat rough -- not a smooth as previous Michelin Tires.

                      When I purchased the Avalon - it did not have Michelin tires and I couldn't wait to make the purchase of the new tires.
