The Rotten Michelin Experience NEW
by: Serious Nut

My 4 Michelin MXV4 have plenty of tread but the sidewalls were all cracked and severely rotted on the forth year. Cracks starts to developed in the mid second year. Bought them from Costco thought 2 huge companies backing up a great product.But the Costco service manager says it's my fault for using tire shine and protectants on the tires. Absolutely no replacement,no refunds, and no prorated adjustments. Never scrape or bump the tires sidewalls on curbs. Costco and the 1-888# Michelin's customer representatives bounced me back & forth like a rubber ball for few days during the request for warranty claims. At the end I give up. The tires looks like a rolling time bomb. I bite the bullet and got rid all 4 tires with another brand at my own expense. My family's life is worth more than a set of poor quality rubber tires. Thanks Michelin.
