consumer surveys. Information shown is the opinion of the consumer and meant to be used for comparison
Vehicle: 2006 Honda Civic EX Coupe
Miles Driven on Tires: 5,000
Location: Lehigh Acres, FL
Driving Condition: Combined Highway/City
Driving Style: Average
Follow-Up Review: 55,000 miles on tires
With high hopes of getting 90,000 out of the tires, I am sorely disappointed to find out that I will only get just above 60,000 miles out of the tire. Not a happy camper!
Initial Review: 5,000 miles on tires
Going with a lower speed rating for my car ( T instead of H ), increased the handling and stability of my car. Just give me 90,000 miles on these tires ( tread warranty ) and that will make a 'Michelin Man' out of me.
