Michelin Latitude Tour

My Jeep came with the Michelin Latitude Tour tires. I'm wondering how they are holding up for everyone that has some mileage on them? They are rated for 65000 miles but I don't see that happening.

No rattles just a strange odor. I'm thinking it's some kind of adhesive. Hopefully it will dissipate in a few days.

Re: 12 month warranty

Down here in South Florida you're lucky to even get a year out of them. The sun is the big problem, dry rots the wiper edge. I'll have them check them out heck I've got nothing to lose.
