Follow-Up Review: 28,000 miles on tires
After almost 30,000 miles of driving in the past 13-14 months, these tires are phenomenal for this heavy SUV. The tires are typical Michelin quality. Very smooth, well balanced with no vibrations, low noise, and good handling. The tires have had no issues so far and have about 4/32 depth left which I assume will get me another 8-10k miles left. Only issue are the hydoplanning resistance which is not that good for this car and when its pouring outside the car does hydroplane more on the highway than the continental 4x4 tires. This is a rare issue for an excellent tire. Due to the weak winter, we only drove in few inches of snow but car does well but need to be careful when icy as it can slide more than usual due to the heavy weight of the ML. I am still very happy with these Michelins and will put another set on in few months!!
Initial Review: 2,000 miles on tires
Our 2010 ML350 came with the Continental tires which in my opinion are terrible tires to put on such expensive cars as they wore out at 25,000 miles and were noisy, vibrating a bit on highways despite balancing. The Michelins are so superior that they tighten up the steering feel, gives more stability on the highways and made the car so smooth and vibration free that it made this ML feel like a German SUV on the autobahn up to 90 mph plus. I always trusted Michelins and these tires are the testament to the amazing quality that Michelin tires have with long thread life, good stability, quietness, and maintaining its integrity and roundness after many miles without leading to vibration like those cheap Continentals. Will update later on how many miles it can get as the ML does 25k miles of driving a year.
