I was doing the fall maintenance on our 2006 Outback today and checked the tread depth of the tires. I put the Michelin Harmonys on when we bought the car in 2008 when the car had 38,000 miles on it. The car just turned over to 140,000, and the Michelin Harmonys still have 6/32nds of tread left-I measure each tire in several different spots and it was at 6/32nds every time. They have worn evenly, never given us a single problem, get good traction in all conditions, and have never been rotated. The car was aligned when the tires were put on, but has not been aligned since. These tires have been a perfect match for our Subaru's winter ability and helped get my wife safely home in some significant snowstorms over the years. At 6 years and 102,000 miles it's time to replace them. They are just starting to get a little noisy and I'm sure some of the snow traction will have deteriorated. And with winter coming up now is the time to get it done. It's a shame that Michelin no longer makes the Harmony-it's been an outstanding tire that far exceeded my every expectation. I'm going to go with either Michelin Defenders or General AltiMAX RT43s. Both seem to have solid reviews and good winter performance for an all season tire. I'll have to decide soon-some of the rebates run out at the end of the week. I hope that whatever I choose does as well as the Harmonys.
