I myself can't wait to get the Michelins of my new GMC. They are so bad in the wet and snow. I will be putting Generals or Firestones when they wear out.

When my Oem tires wore out at 28000 miles I replaced them Cooper HT3 E rated 10 ply tires. I bought a new tv in 2014 and had the dealer take the cheap factory tires off and swapped out for the tires on my 2011 ( the coopers). They had 6000 miles on them. I now have 21000 miles on the 2014 and the tires are still in great shape. The are quiet and ride nice for a 10 ply. I live in Rochester NY and hav e no problem with the snow but we only get 10 or 12 feet of snow here. It looks like these tires should last another 20000 miles or so. I will definitely buy again. $880 out the door at Mavis tire. My wheels are18 in.

That has been my experience as well. That long mileage may be due, in part, to harder rubber compound.

Not sure if you have a store near your location but it might be worth looking into. I just had a set of Michelin LTX A/T installed on my 2500HD about 2 weeks ago at BJ's Wholesale Club for $890. Here is the link - https://m.bjs.com

Appears yours takes a person to the wrong BJs.

I will say I do have OEM michelins on the truck. They only have 37000 miles on them and are bald as the day is long. They are past the point of being unsafe so I have to do this before my next camping outing in October. I found a good price on the coopers at a locally owned tire shop. I think I'm going to go with them. Thanks everyone for your input.
