So far I love the Michelins.. But to be fair, I just turned 5,000 miles yesterday on the truck so it isn't a fair comparison. The truck drives and rides beautifully!! Smooth, quiet and precise.
My first set of Wranglers I changed out at 52,000 but only because winter was coming and I wanted new tread (I plow).. if it was the summer, I could have gone longer. My 2nd set I had 55,000 on them and still could have gone a little longer. Keep in mind as well that I neglected the tire rotations and only had 1 done in the 107,000 miles between the two sets.
However, I found them at buy 3 get 1 free.. So I went to Townfair tire, bought them, then the next day brought in the buy 3 get 1 from a competitor and they price matched plus took another 10% off. I ended up paying about $850 for 4 new tires mounted/balanced and these are the 20" tires lol. So that is another reason I stuck with them.. was always able to finagle a great deal. At almost half the price of Michelins, I didn't care if they were not as good of a tire, I got the mileage and saved a boat load of money.
Michelins if I'm not mistaken are around $400 a piece.. Ouch!!
Sorry, got a little off topic lol.
