I am a master certified technician for 16yrs and always found michelins to be some of the best tires on the street. They are a bit more expensive than most tires but as I have discovered, they are worth every cent. I have over 37K miles on mine and they don't even look half worn. I do rotate every 5k. Last winter my transfer case module went out right before a huge snow fall. It was incredible how well the tires worked. I didn't need four wheel drive at all, it was a 19inch snow fall. Awesome tires!!!!
