    I don't think that is the difference. I'm pretty anal retentive about
    inflation pressures, rotations and alignment. Maybe its just the crappy
    Texas roads. I have tried both Michelin and Goodyear with similar results.

    My only complaint about Michelin is that when I have needed warranty
    consideration for a defective tire, they absolutely do not honor the
    warranty, which effectively increases the cost even more over the premium
    they already charge for their tires. Cost of ownership wise, I think
    practically any other comparable tire ends up being cheaper.

    Well, maybe it is the roads, I dunno. Driving habits may affect things
    some too, of course. I'm not overly abusive with heavy braking and so on,
    although I don't think I really "baby" the tires, either.
    I think the somewhat premium prices for the Michelins are worth it. I
    have pretty much gone over to using them exclusively. In 30 years of
    driving, I have never once needed to use a warranty on any tire,
    regardless of brand. <shrug>
