    Is this normal? Never happened when I was using Pilot Preceda 2 or Goodyear Revspec RS-02

    Not that old, got to check the receipt. But still a lot of thread left. Look at the wear indicator on the 2nd picture, still a long way to go till it hits the Michelin Man (wear indicator).

    But the rubber itself is falling apart.

    How old are your tyres? And roughly how many KMs on it?

    Mine clocked less than 20,000kms.

    It is not under inflated. Tyres are always properly inflated. This is not due to wear, the rubber is literally shredding off, even in the center block, just less visible.

    Not due to setup, more likely compound failure. My GY Asy had this problem but it happened after it passed 4 years of age. If yours are still new, report back to Michelin....

    Ya, previously I use PS3 also still okay. Maybe this particular batch faulty models gua...

    Kindly let us know bro...the outcome. I heard they only refund the amount of cash depending
    on the thread left on the tyres. Best if u go back to the mech that change the tyres for u.

    Cuz my mech told me, since they are Michelin Dealers, is easier for them to get the claim for us.
    Most of the time they will just say, ur tyre must be under inflation and etcs. Meaning to say
    is our own negligence on caring for the tyres...So, if your mech is michelin dealers, send back
    to them. They will handle for u.

    Actually it is better customer go and claim. Make noise, and don't back down.
    Dealer go and claim, they say this amount is this amount, cannot do anything. They say no claim then how? Moreover you go back to dealer you have to fit new tyres first to return claim tyres.
    If go to Michelin direct, they give you claim voucher, then you go to dealer and change and pay the difference. There you can ask dealer you want other brand.....ha! ha!

    Usually they more afraid of customers, because they can learn from bro. Danz......ha! ha!:rofl:
    Teach some friends before and had better results. Even some of my tyre shop owner ask customer claim is better, especially when tyre bulge. If you remove from the rims, they say owner curbed the tyres. If the tyres still on the rims, can show them rims got no injury where got curbed the tyres, so got better chance to claim....:driver:
