You must run them down to the wear bars. I never do that on a tire. In the wet NW one wants a tire with some tread left. My Michelin's would most likely go to 70K and be down to the wear bars, however they will come off before then. Last year at this time we were one day ahead of snow each day coming South. I do not want to get caught by those driving conditions with nearly worn out tires.


I'm at 65K on the OEM Goodyear Wrangler SRA's on my Chev. Can't complain and will buy the same tire when I need new tires next year. It's a good LT tire and used about 50% with a large trailer in tow.

I've had the Cooper HT3's on my Class C for not quite 2 years and 28,000 miles. Maybe 20% worn at this point. Like them much better than the Michelin LTX's they replaced, and were $50 per tire less than the Bibendum brand. Pleasantly surprised how good they are.

There are plenty of take-off Michelins around these parts that you can get cheap. I tried trading the Michelins off my '20 3500 DRW with 700 miles. The tire shop I typically used, refused to take them. They have more take offs then they can sell already. Second shop, offered me $50.00 a tire begrudgingly. Discount tire offered me $75.00 a tire and I took it. I put Toyo AT3's on it and went up a size. Good looking tire, looks to me like it is much like the Falcon Wild Peak AT. I am putting the Wild Peak on my '18 3500 SRW, we will see how they compare.

Michelin Defender LTX M/S. Have these now after the prior model LTX M/S2 tires. Quiet, great grip in rain and snow, and I expect at least 60k miles.

Had 3 sets of Michelin XLTs before they changed the name to Defender. I found that they had the most road wander of any tire that I've driven to the point that I found them dangerous. Everything else about them was great. On my F-350 the front tires wear off on both edges as if they are under inflated (they're actually over inflated by load.) I am currently running Cooper HT3s because they have a real heavy edges which should help with the wear problem. The ride is a little better than the Continental OEM tires, wear seems good so far, and traction is just as good as the OEMs.
