Poor Tire Tread Wear

CrazyChemist, michelinman.com
12 February 2013
  • Summary: These were the OE tires and I also put on a second set of these same tires since I have owned my 2006 MB SLK280. The front tires are 205/55R16 91W and rear tires are 225/50R16 92W. I have just over 45000 total miles on my car. Tires are kept properly inflated but not rotated due to the size differences. Probably half of it is highway miles for weekend trips and the rest is freeway commuting to work.

Terrible tire life

  • Summary: 195/55R16 Primacy Run Flat on 2008 Mini Cooper.... 22,000 miles, and tires need to be replaced as at wear bars. Heavy freeway miles, single passenger. Expensive Run Flat tires. Proper rotation as req'd and air pressures recommended. We shall see what the dealer says concern warranty, as is 45K. Tires handled fine, worked well. But 22K from a 60 year old man? Give me a break....

  • Summary: They came with my new Peugeot 407. After about 4 years and no more that 35,000 kms, nobody (including me) didn't understand how come that a pair of Michelin tyres can became so noisy. To be mentioned here that the wear was more than OK (about 8 mm). I went with the vehicle in the specialised workshop (Peugeot) and the mechanics finally accepted that the bad-bad noise came from the tyres. I replaced them and now I can listen to the music on the road, again.

  • Summary: Came with the car I bought second hand from a dealership, all four tyres looked new. Absolutely lethal in the snow, bad in the wet and only mediocre in the dry. Very noisy. Winter Nokian tyres are better all round and more fuel efficient, even at 15c. Winter tyres now due to be swapped over. Changing for Hankook Evo v12 k110s, that seem to get excellent reviews with a more reasonable price tag.

  • Summary: I purchased my Honda Accord Euro to enjoy the driving experience, the car has only done 20,000 kilometers, half of which was Highway use. The Michelin Primacy HP tyres on the Honda have been noisy (screaming) for the last 10,000 kilometers. Honda said I will need to purchase new tyres or get over it...

  • Summary: I had these fitted to my Subaru forester after 2 sets of Yokohama tyres which were excellent, lasted 30 to 40k miles. The michelin tyres are very poor, loads of road noise, follow ripples in the road and in my opinion do not suit the vehicle at all. I used to enjoy driving my car but not with these fitted. I have had the suspension, transmission, bearings etc checked and the garage informed me it was the tyres. The sooner they wear out the better.
