    You researched tires for 15 years?

    You buy cheap tires and they blow on the road, what do you tell the family(s) around you?

    Does your michelin EVER blow? No?
    I used michelin too...its not so good for me as its
    priced. Or maybe you dont like cheap cause is maid in china?
    Or you just like to buy expensive...than stop look for cheap fuel and cheap shops.
    ;-)
    And when your truck broke ask for help on truck stops to got some $$$ to buy bus ticket to go home to your family. I see it every day.
    O/0 asking for help..truck in shop dont have money to pay repair.
    I posted it for drivers they cant buy expensive tires , not to discus what is better...whats your opinion... why dont you post and let us know where you buy good and cheap tires, etc ?
    And mostly of you are company drivers even dont know how much are tires .

    I was was very respectful to you last night and most every post in this thread has been. It appears that most of the people posting are not company drivers. I am a company driver and I do know how much tires cost. If you aren't getting enough per mile to put enough away in a maintenance escrow to buy QUALITY tires that are safe,then you may want to rethink some things.

    With all respect... I have money..but its hard earned money.
    Why should I pay 3x more for things maid in usa if imported things are DOT approved and do same job for me.
    Topic was cheap tire....not what is better or what tires are more expensive....
    I know that....I am purchasing them for 15 years...and I know how many miles I maid with michelin...with bridgestone. ..with goodyear..yokohoma etc.... you buy what you like ...I just posted this topic for people that are looking for tires...not to expensive...if you have better deal let us all know tgat..where and how much ...we should help each other here not argue who is right who isn't.
    Right?
    :)

    $275 is CHEAP comparing to $800 :)
    I purchased brand new freightliner with michelin... I replaced steer on 94K miles (wear out) and drive tires replaced on 237K .... is michelin worth 3x more than no bame tires?
    If yes why I didnt make 200k on steer and 700k on drive with brand new truck?
