Michelin Cross Terrain SUV
Follow-Up Review: 27,000 miles on tires
May 03, 2012
Purchased a second set of tires which now have 27,000 miles. Will need to be replaced at 30,000 miles. Other than treadwear, the tires have been outstanding. Traction is excellent, both dry and wet. Handling, ride comfort and noise were improved over the first generation tire. Under winter driving conditions, other than ice, work as well as a winter tire. They maintain cornering traction in snow and slush, unlike most all-season tires.
Initial Review: 20,000 miles on tires
July 02, 2009

This set of tires has worn to the indicators at 20,000 miles of pretty easy driving. Alignment, balance and pressure were maintained at factory specs. These tires were a replacement for Goodyear Eagle LS that were oem. The traction, handling and ride comfort were improved over the Goodyears, but the treadwear is much worse. This is a very expensive tire with a 65,000 treadwear warranty. Michelin seems to be having a treadwear problem with this particular tire mounted on crossover vehicles. It surprised me because my experience with other Michelin tires has been excellent. Michelin will pro-rate the replacements under their warranty, but even the pro-rated cost is way too much for this tire.
