I purchased a set of 4 Michelin MXVS tires for my 2006 Toyota Solara XLE Convertible.
I had the regular rotations done and when I went for a recent rotation I was informed that you would not do this because the tires were too worn - this was at 22,000. I questioned the poor performance and was told that there was no tread warranty on this tire.
I contacted Michelin about this and they recommend their Primacy product for this car.
I discussed this with the store and they say that the Primacy model is not suited to this car.
I would appreciate hearing other ideas.
Did you save the paperwork you were given when you purchased the tires? Did you read the fine print?
Welcome to the world of low-profile, high-performance tires, with surprised owners needing to replace them at 20-25k miles. You might look at tirerack.com to find tires with longer tread life for your car. What is the exact size you are using?
Yep, I use BFG g-Force KDW2’s on my car. Last set I bought ran about $1000 (tires + mounting/balancing,etc.) They last for about 22-28k miles a set. For me I’m willing to sacrifice treadlife for more grip. I knew about the higher than average tire cost before I bought the car, you gotta pay to play sometimes.
