Default Michelin Pilot Sport 3

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

I drive only on tarmac. No off road or anything.

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....

6 years or usable tread life, according to Michelin Malaysia
Michelin Malaysia - Warranty of Michelin Tyres - http://www.michelin.com.my - www.michelin.com.my

And since I am not even close to the wear indicator & Michelin Pilot Sport 3 is out for less than 6 years, so definitely still in warranty even without receipt, which I still have.

Monday I'll call them, how they treat me will determine if I'll continue being a Michelin customer. I shall see if they back their words!

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.
