These sorry OEM tires had 4,400 miles when I barely rubbed a curb at 2 mph during the winter. A fair size chunk of sidewall rubber just fell out. I felt that the compound on the sidewall was defective but Goodyear with there minimal warranty refused to even give me 50% off a replacement. I had always tried to support American but even though Goodyear is posting record income they do not stand behind their product. I purchased two new 245/40ZR -19 MICHELIN PILOT SPORT A/S PLUS as I refuse to further support Goodyear on my three vehicles from this point forward. Only problem is that these Michelins as 4X's the tire as the Goodyear. Road noise, traction, Ride all noticeably improved.
Props to TireRack on getting me the new Michelin's the day after my order. I was stunned.
