I'm at 9500 kms on my Continentals and they're just giving up the ghost now. Looking to replace by they're over a grand CAD, so forget that! Tried finding the Michelin's you're referring to, but can't seem to find the ones that fit. Which size did you buy?I don't know exactly how many miles I put on the Continental tires because they were on the Trax only six months out of the year but I'm pretty sure they didn't make it to 25000 miles. To give you an idea how bad they were, they drove worse than my Hankook winter tires. When I switched to Michelin it totally changed the ride and I found new love for my Trax. Now it rides like it should.
