Michelin Tires - What has happened to the quality?
by Patrea Pabst
After 30+ years of buying michelin tires for cards and trucks, and getting great milage out of them, the most recent tires I purchased in 2011 for my Acura TL and my son's Mercedes Benz have shown uneven wear and very poor milage - barely a year.
Multiple calls to Michelin have results in me being stonewalled - they refuse to answer questions about what changes have been made or why there are problems - lots of us apparently, based on the crowd in the service lounge at the Acura dealership.
A warranty that is prorated on wear, where wear is excessive due to defects in the tires, is worthless.
Any one else?
