During July, 1986 I purchased 4 Michelin XGTV4's. The
tires were rotated every 5,000 miles and have about 25,000 miles on them with 50% tread life left.
Unfortunately, a nail lodged in the left rear tire causing a
slow leak. I didn't realize it and mistakenly drove on the
low tire ruining the sidewall.
Sam's Club in St. Louis is willing to provide a new tire at 50% proration under their road hazard program.
Michelin no longer makes XGTV4;s - now they make the
Pilot XGTV4 which has an improved tread design.
Should I put one new tire on or should I put two new tires
on the rear and leave the old style XGTV4's on the front?
I hate to put 4 new tires on and throw away the other
tires with 50% life left in them!!!
I also thought about purchasing two snow tires for the
rear and using these until the front tires wear out!!!
Any comments or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
