Kleb sez: I have gotten to where I just about only buy Michelin
Sent from my OkiePhone
Almost every michelin I've had slipped belts. In my experience they
are worth nowhere near the money.
Same with badyear, except the Quantum came with a set of high end
goodyears that were very good tires. We wore em out. Generals
have been ok summer tires, but terrible (scary) on snow.
I know other have had bad experience with German Continentals, but
I'd had very good experiences with German made tires, and also with
the french Kleber.
I had one set of Pirellis (made in usa) on the burgundy SDL when I
bought it. All 4 slipped belts within 50 miles on a MBCA event.
THAT was a fun ride home! It was like being on some carnival car
with elliptical wheels mounted at an angle. up and down and
sideways, all over the place, all out of phase, and hoping not more
than one popped before we got home, 'cause there is only one spare!
It was a long slow trip home
Jokohamas came apart on I-80 (not hot) and caused $2500 damage to the TE.
My daughter put cheep chinee tars on the SL because 14" tars were
hard to find. They all slipped belts /bubbled.
in my experience Merkun and Japanee radial tars seldom wear out, they
slip belts or in the case of jokohamas, fly apart and cause a lot of
Blizzaks have been good. No problems with any of them. I've worn
out a few sets.
