They went +60K miles and switched to $250/ea Michelin LTX-MS LT265/75R16E on the same alloys.

Then that accident to ruin two tires and one alloy wheel
2012passedSMOG 96Sub7.4L, Well below state average, even below for cars


Also don't like LTX-MS's as they have too many sipes and feathered easily while testing buddies proto ceramic pads. 80 mile round trip run at nite to volleyball and found this the next morning

After getting new $250/ea tires paid for by insurance, woke up one morning to this:
2008 Sub flat

2008 Sub flat2

2008 Sub flat3

2008 Sub flat5

They cracked after just a couple years and note that my Sub is no longer my daily. Divorced and she got the two lux sedans and I got the trucks. The Michelins on her sedans also were showing cracks.

The Silverado also has Michelin LTX-AT 33/12.5R15LT load range C and they too cracked (two sets)

Last straw was my road bicycle tires also cracked. Got doored on one of my morning rides and after the medics/fire trucks/police left, noticed that my bicycle tires were also cracked. Less than a year old and always garaged. Maybe just under a 1,000 miles

More later, gotta go for now
