michelon tires — dry rot inside tread
Purchased a Honda Ridgeline in March, 2008. Michelin tires produced in the 32 week of 2007 were on the truck. The truck was purchased new from the showroom floor, now we have found dry rot in the tread on all of the tires. This truck has never set more than 24 hrs at one time. It has 63, 000 miles on the truck and tires. Michelin wants us to send all 4 tires back to be inspected, while 4 new Michelin tires are placed on truck. They will hold our credit card number, and if it is determined that Michelin is not at fault, we will have to purchase the tires they placed on the truck. Why would I want to purchase 4 more tires with the probability of having the same problems? I feel the dealership's word should be good enough for Michelin, since the dealership is an authorized service and dealer with Michelin.
