Well here's another thread about the dry cracked Michelin Cross Terrains on my grandmother's 02' Chevy Trailblazer LTZ. In October of 2011 the previous set of these tires were dry cracking and splitting at the sidewall and Discount Tire (where they were purchased at) replaced them under their road hazard warranty I guess because they charged like 20 something bucks per tire for new certificates. The tires were made on the 28th week of 2011 and in August I took them in for a rotation/balance and Discount Tire said "we'll keep an eye on them". The car is only driven 3-4k a year at the most, but a lot of that is highway with occasional trips out of town and I don't want the tire to blowout on my grandmother and have her stranded on the freeway/wreck the car. I'm thinking of going to another Discount Tire that doesn't recognize me (I go there too often with too many vehicles lol) and ask if they recommend replacement of the tires, if they ask if I purchased them from a Discount Tire I'll tell them no and if they do recommend replacement then I'll tell them that they were purchased there. Now the dilemma. I'm unsure of what tires to get, and they don't make the Michelin Cross Terrains anymore. Somebody will probably not like me saying this, but I will NEVER purchase another Michelin tire. It will not happen. Between 2 bad sets for the Trailblazer in a row and Michelins on the Beetle being absolute garbage it isn't going to happen. I do have to admit that these Michelins on the Trailblazer are silk smooth, I mean absolutely 100% as quiet and smooth as it gets. Tires available at my Discount Tire I'm thinking of (recommend others as well) and I'm looking in the upper price range since the Cross Terrains were pricier than any other tire they currently sell. I do not remember the price on them but what I do remember was the full price with warranties and taxes would have been $1076 out the door, and not even the $180 Michelins on there website go that high. (Tires are in no perticular order) Pirelli Scorpion ATR Yokohama YK-HTX Bridgestone Dueler Continental Cross Contact LX20 Yokohama Geolander Nitto NT 421Q BF Goodrich Rugged Trail BF Goodrich a Rugged Terrain I'm looking for a tire that isn't going to prematurely crack (if that's possible) and also my family has a few gold mines about 35 miles off the highway on a semi-rough dirt road that the car may drive on a couple times. Any help is greatly appreciated.
