With just 1,000 miles my wife picked up a lag bolt in the tread.
It would have been patch-able, but she drove on it for awhile with little or no air pressure, and the sidewall has separated. Partly due to bad advice from me.
Fortunately the rim is not damaged at all.
To get the matching Michelin tire is $160 plus installation and 1 week wait. Ouch! I know everyone is worried about the cost of the PAX tires but these EX-L tires are bad enough!
I saw tire rack has Michelins (though not same as OEM) for about $69. Probably could have gotten 2 of those and then at least had matching front tires and matching rears. But with only 1,000 miles on the van, I really want it to all be matching.
Thanks for letting me vent.....
