Michelin tires were the first radials and earned a great reputation for mileage back in the days when most of us had bias belted tires that ran abt 20k miles.

They are quality tires, but I seem to notice more problems with punctures with Michelins. That makes me think the rubber is softer than some brands. My current Ford Crown Victoria came equipped with Michelins. I have replaced two of them due to side wall punctures that could not be repaired. I think I'm likely to get abt 50K miles on these. My last Crown Vic had Bridgestones that went 70k miles.

Michelins are ok but they are no longer my first choice tires.
