2.0t tire wear, replacement?

anyone else experienced premature tire wear with the michelin premier ltxís installed on the 2.0t? i just turned 22k miles and 2 tires are at the wear bars, another is a lil better then the 4th (replaces when the vehicle had about 5-6k miles is around half tread. iíve never in my life seen tires wear out so fast! and they shouldnít especially for the price and the fact that michelin rates them a 60k mile tire! looking for a good all season replacement, something that will do well in snow

Wow. I have a 2019 2.0 as well. I only have a couple hundred miles on mine, but that 22k is kinda shocking.
I recently had a 2014 silverado that I got 55-60k on the factory tires.

I'm listening to this as well, wonder if anyone else has come across the same thing. I thought Michelins were higher quality and would last a lot longer than 22k.

Then again, would something like this be covered by the warranty? Or at least pro-rated?

my last equinox (2015) had michelinís and they had 45k miles on them and half tread when i sold the vehicle (60k on vehicle but i used snow tires 2 winters) they were a great tire

i remember reading a post of someone else having this issue around 20k miles on a 2018 and gm pod half the bill for new tires so iím gonna make a stop at the local dealer tomorrow. apparently when u buy a new vehicle the treadwear warranty doesnít apply to the factory tires

Before condemning the tires, I would be questioning the wheel alignment, driving style or road conditions.

I would suspect the alignment is the root cause of your tire wear issue.

We removed the 19 inch Hankook Ventus Noble tires that came on our 2018 2.0 at 7,000 miles and put on Michelin LTX tires prior to leaving on a winter trip as the Hankooks are not the best in the winter. The Michelin tires now have 18,000 miles on them, and are showing excessive wear with only about 5/32 tread remaining. The vehicle has not been driven hard. We plan to leave again on a winter trip next month, and I am concerned 5/32 is not a lot of tread depth if we run into snowy roads. When we bought the LTX tires, TireRack gave them good reviews for winter driving, but recent TireRack reviews indicate excessive tread wear issues. I do note the tires only start out with 8.5/32 tread depth, which is less than the common 10/32 or 11/32 tread depth. Our last car had Michelin Primacy MXV4 tires that drove good in the winter and still looked good at 45,000 miles when we traded the car.

Does the factory not install softer tires for a smoother and quieter road ride ( test drives) ? I thought I was told that and it makes sense; help improve the chances of a new car sale. The dodge journey ( 2012) had the same issues in forum chats, replaced ties and more road noise but a longer lasting tire.

The Michelin Premier LTX tires only start at 8.5/32's tread depth when brand new. Most other tires start anywhere from 10/32 up to 12/32. Not sure why Michelin manufactures them that way, but it would make sense for them to seemingly wear faster than other tires...less tread to start with.



My 2015 Equinox came new with Michelin Latitude Tour tires, and they were at 4/32 after 42,300 miles or so. Never cared for them as the rain traction was barely adequate, they were noisy, and they rode hard. Replaced them with Cooper Evolution Tour all-season tires. The Cooper tires ride better, are extremely quiet, and much more secure in all conditions.

Anyone have Michelin Defender LTX M/S? They are rated much better for wear, and excellent in other categories. #2 out of 39 SUV tires.

If you do a search on goole for Michelin Premier LTX reviews, you're going to find that you're not alone.
Pretty much everybody who has over 10,000 miles on these tires is complaining about premature tire wear.
So it would appear that it has nothing to do with driving style, wheel allignment or wheel balance.

It's a shame that a company like Michelin would manufacture a tire like this. As mentioned earlier in this thread is the fact that the Michelin brand new gives you 8/32 tread compared to 10/32 on almost all the competition.

I just picked up my 2019 Terrain today and already I've decided that my replacement tires will be the General Altimax RT43's when it's time. They get excellent reviews and pricing seems reasonable.

As a side note after driving the Terrain 1.5 for 200 miles today, I'm very pleased with everything so far. Subject to change of course.
The 1.5 actually surprised me. A few years ago I had an Equinox with the 2.4 and I like the 1.5 better (so far).

Anyway, time to start saving up for tires I guess. Thanks a lot Michelin. I used to love Michelin tires.

gm ended up telling me to call a number they gave me for michelin, michelin had me go to the local michelin dealer (ntb) and offered to pay 60% replacement cost. after another call to them i got them agree to pay 75% but they have to be another set of michelinís so iíll be trying the premier a/s they have a bit better ratings on tire rack so hopefully theyíll last longer... should be getting installed next week sometime since they werenít instock locally
