I am just going by my experience. I used to drive Michelin on all of my cars
before we moved to the country. That is why I put the Michelin's on the car.
The car came with Pirellies <spelling> and they went over 70k miles before I
put the Michelins on. After I I noticed the Michelin's were wearing, I
checked the wear rating on them, and they were only a 300 which is about the
lowest you can get. It may be a case where Michelin makes the tires to spec
that the big dealers ask for. This was one of the bigger tire chain stores
in the US, but I won't mention any names on the list.

The Jeep Cherokee Sport that she drives now is running on Goodyear
Regatta's, (i think) She is not home right now so I cannot go out and look.
What she has on it right now have gone over 40K miles on gravel and still
look almost new. I will check them when she gets home and let you know.
