I took my car to wal-mart for oil change and tire rotation, they did the oil change and refused to do the tire rotation. They recommended that both front ties be replaced. They made me sign a paper that they informed me of the problem with the tires. The technicians said he won't feel safe driving this car especially with kids on board. I do care of my car and keep up with the tire rotation and general maintenance. I took the to discount tires and they recommended replacing the tires because of cracks in the tires. Michelin is refusing to honor the warranty 6 years / 90,000 miles. There is no way these tires can go 90,000 miles, there are cracks in the tires. A second look at these tires is vital, they have cracks and there is no way the can handle the 90,000 miles. Michelin is playing games and are refusing to honor the warranty.

Severe steering vibrations at highway speeds 60mph & above. The dealer has, so far, replaced front right transaxle, balanced tires 4-times, and replaced oem Goodyear Eagle ls tires (205/55/16) with Bridgestone potenza tires (205/55/16). However, the front tires repeatedly get out of balance every now and then, and severe steering vibrations continue at 60mph highway speed, which is creating a potential life-threatening safety hazard every time the vehicle is driven over 60-65 mph speeds.
