Michelin X-One tire testimonials

Wondering if anyone who has trialed this tire has comments regarding their overall impression. Curious about ride, handling and improvement in fuel consumption, if any.

Not compared the fuel economy, but I like the ride and quietness. But in my opinion the peace of mind is there also. Michelin claims 10 years of service if taken care of.

Glad to hear they will last 10 years if taken care of. I just got a 2004 Vectra and the dealer put 6 of these tires on it new. I was very happy. Especially when I hear they cost $525 to $700 each. Going to baby these babies until we trade it in in 5 to 10 years. Hopefully will never have to buy a tire for this thing. Just had a scare when one of the inner duals went down to 3.5 lbs. pressure. Yikes. Didn't drive on it. Turned out to be a stuck valve. No damage was done.

They say that for almost all the tires they sell.

It is hard to believe your dealer put six 14" wide rims with 17.2" wide tires that are 39.7" in diameter all around that Vectra. Doesn't the rear dual's being over 34" wide plus spaceing stick out past the fender wells some?

And did they have to cut any of the fender well to a bigger size?

I'm sure many on here would like to see a picture with all 6 X-one tires mounted and installed.

Rick, I'm just repeting what some body else said. I myself would not even try it! The valve stem leak on the other hand I have had this problem! My coach tires were balanced with powder and it takes (supposedly) special valve stems with filters! Went camping and the next day we had three flats!

No "supposedly" about it! If the filters aren't in place the valve stems leak and you found out the results

I haven't seen any reviews on these tires yet but I've also been looking. The main thing people have complained about is that you also have to purchase new rims that are expensive.

I myself will not run the "super singles" I am looking into the 19ply Michelin Coach tires especially made for the steer axle. $800.00 a piece is what a friend paid for two last month! We both have American Coaches 42R's and they are a little heavy on the steer. I like Michelins and will wait a little while to see how they perform and to see if the price comes down a little.

We have had 5 Class A's, two of which came with Goodyear and the other three with Michelins. The first coach lasted about 30 days before being switched over to Michelin and the second never left the Dealer's lot without them being changed. We have XRV's (305 front / 295 rear and tag) and I can't say enough about Michelin tires. We have put close to 100,000 miles on our coaches on just about every type of road and terrain you can think of and I've never once had any sense of those Michelins "whining or complaining" - they just take it in stride. I wholeheartedly endorse their tires.
