Same here... my Michelin’s failed just like BenK’s..

Every set of Michelin’s I have ever owned failed either spectacularly (sidewall failure) or slowly (leaking through the cracks)

I’m part of the Never Again movement as it relates to Michelin’s.

To their credit, I’ve never worn the trad off of one. Lol

Thanks!

X2 Same experience here. But I have worn the tread off, in less then the stated mileage expected. And no adjustment by Michelin due to time.

Soon after the above pic...if blew from too much flexing due to air leaking out and the tires sidewall were flexing too much



Did your TPMS fail to report the pressure loss?

Thinking about either the Cooper ATP ($187)or the Cooper AT3 XLT ($235). Leaning more to the ATPs because I drive about 30K miles a year so no matter what brand I get, I'm gonna be replacing somewhere around the two year mark.

Thoughts?

My thoughts are only from my experience with Coopers. About 10 yrs ago I had replaced them on my Dodge, and all 4 on my fifthwheel. That was 10 tires. I had 7 tires out of 10 separate all with in 3 yrs time. My buddy who owns a rental yard at the time used our same Cooper tire dealer that we both deal with and most of his tires on equipment did the same thing. Others here will tell you that they are a great tire. I won't buy another ever again. Now for the cars, that is a different story. Had them on my Grand Marquis and road the hell out of them, and did great. That's why I put them on the truck and trailer.
My experience only, so I don't need a lecture.

Cooper like all tire makers have several lines of LT tires. So it makes a big difference which one is selected for the job. Especially carrying heavy load at highways speeds

I've used Cooper commercial grade LT SRM-II for years with no issues. Cooper discontinued them..... now I've used their new gen commercial grade Discoverer HT-3 LT tires. Makes a big difference what the tire mfg recommends vs the tire dealer for carrying heavy loads. The old SRM-II and the newer HT-3 were the only LT tires that Coopers 1-800 tire would recommend for my work trucks and work trailers.
Michelin....BFG....Bridgestone/etc all usually have one of their LT tire lines recommended for heavy service work.

This is where your tires are headed for.

This was a Maxxis M8008 that was on my utility trailer. At the time of this failure the tire was a spare as the year before the mate had failed.

When the mate failed I had the tire shop inspect this tire very closely and elected to buy two new tires and keep this one as a spare.

The tire was inside the trailer as a spare and as I was preparing for a trip and loading the trailer I noticed this problem.
