Initial Review, 5000 Miles on Tires
May 12, 2011

Replaced Michelins that lasted only 17000 miles.

EXCEPT for the fact that initially these tires seemed not to balance, these tires ride very nicely, quiet and with loads of traction. It seems I get another 1-2 mpg out of these, but it could be the size of the tire.

BIGGEST PROBLEM is that 2 of the 4 (so far) turn out not to balance because they are actually DEFECTIVE according to the installer! He says it is not the balancing, but the fact that 2 of the 4 are not round and straight, they actually were wobbling on the wheel, creating a sensation of imbalance. He said to call Tire Rack which I did. The customer service gal talked to the installer while I was on the phone with her, arranged replacement tires to be sent to the installer, and the old ones returned, all in one call, all in one day! We'll see how this works now.
