All four tires failed prematurely at under 6000 miles

I had 225/65 R16 Michelin Primacy MXV4 tires installed on a 2010 Dodge Grand Caravan approximately 6 months & less than 6000 miles ago. Approximately 3-4 weeks after the tires were installed, I noticed vibration on the steering wheel at 50-60mph. A few weeks after that, I noticed vibration in the rear of the vehicle.

I didn't do anything about the problem immediately as I thought weights had come off the tires and they just needed balancing. I brought the vehicle in for tire rotation & balancing and was told that there were bulges in the tires and the tread was separating. All four tires were replaced under warranty a few weeks ago. There was no vibration immediately after the tires were replaced, however, there is now vibration at the steering wheel again.
