Default Cracked OEM Michelin X A/S tires..

Remove this ad
As I mentioned in another thread, we towed our Genny across country from Sierra Vista, AZ to Lancaster (Fairfield County) OH. When I was checking air pressure in tires, I noticed the OEM Michelin X A/S tires were CRACKING on the sidewalls! Less than a year and a half and about 16,500 miles, these tires are shot. I took the Genny to Discount Tire in Canal Winchester OH Sat morning for an evaluation. Since it was a Michelin warranty replacement, I got the same tires (gas saving or lower rolling resistance) and I got them with a 10% pro rating..(at $216 each, I got the four tires for $86.40 (and of course, tax, the cost to mount/balance, road hazard certs, disposal fee and TPMS reset). But since I bought 4 of them, I qualified for a $30 rebate, so the tires actually cost $56.40. I'll post pics of them (can't from here).....The DOT number on the tires is: B9NP009X0411. They didn't have the 18" tires in stock so the ordered them and called me this morning and I took it in to get them replaced. I've had two other sets of Michelins crack (different vehicles) and a set of Yoks (on our Envoy) crack.

My car is identical to yours including the tires, except I have 30,000 on them. I'll be checking them in the morning.

Yea, we got the car in July of 2011. So with 16,500 miles, we got 90% of the new tires written off. Living in SE Arizona, at 5,000' elevation, it got more UV light...as for ozone, I don't know. Those are the two tire killers. I first saw the tires and thought they were like hairline cracks, but they were not. I'll post photos when I get home. Pretty lame for Michelins to crack like that.

My recommendation is to liberally and frequently apply a tire protectant that has UV protectant. I suggest 303 Aerospace.

I gave mine a good look-see this morning and I do see some very fine cracking along the bead. I don't see anything in the sidewall itself. I use a tire protectant about every other week. Its Eagle 1 brand. Mine were manufactured week 46 of 2011. Tread is well over 50% with just over 30,000 miles. I would like to see your pics to compare.

One of the things I've been asked, when initiating warranty replacement on cracked sidewalls, is "have you used any tire products on the tires"? The correct response is "no." LOL.


Here are my 4 tires, one pic per tire.

If you think these are bad, the Michelin tires on the Envoy, when noticed were missing small chunks of rubber.

Holy Hell I was not expecting your tires to be in that bad of condition - your old tires are downright unacceptable for their age and miles.

I just looked at the photos. They remind me of 1975 when I worked for Goodyear Tire And Rubber Co. We(Goodyear) had a problem that looked like this with several production runs of the Custom Steelguard Radial. I think we recalled the tires and gave customers a large discount toward new tires.

Those pics look terrible! Mine aren't anywhere near cracked like that. Glad you were able to get it resolved.
