Nothing yet.. but I only have 2,700 miles on it so far.Have you folks that have been driving your cars for a while noticed any unusual tire wear? I have been concerned about foot note #7 in the brochure which states tire mileage might be substantially less than 20,000 miles.
I can't see how these tires would last only 20K. Having a look at Michelin's website, (Primacy MXM4 | Michelin Tires), they describe this tire as having a 90,000Km (55,000 mi) warranty. It would seem odd that the dealer would say that about these tires.Nothing yet.. but I only have 2,700 miles on it so far.
When the car came in I saw a sticker on the window, which they didn't include in my paperwork and regular wndow sticker, that the tires on this vehicle normally will last 20K miles. I'm sure it's a real soft performance compound to get the sporty feel. Who ever thought we'd get to the point where we wouild see Michelins last only 20K miles
The dealer didn't say it... It was an actual Lexus window label on the car.I can't see how these tires would last only 20K.

Ok, sorry, I'm not following and now a bit confused. When someone called Michelin (above), they stated the rating/mileage that can be expected, but then said to call Lexus? Why/how would Lexus be the ones to determine this???? What am I missing here?Well, I finnaly got a reply from Lexus. You can expect to get 20,000 or less miles on the tires. It kind of reminds me of my Mini Cooper bought new in 1959. The original tires were gone in 10,000 miles. I replaced them with Michelins and was able to get 20,000 mile out of a set. The fact that the Mini had 10 inch wheels didn't help tire wear.
Agreed. By the way, were you not able to rotate the tires on the Mini?Using my 1959 Mini Cooper as an example, I got 80,000 miles out of the rear tires and during that time used 8 front tires. The wear was caused by small wheels and mainly the front wheel drive.
If the CT200h is really wearing tires at that rate, and Lexus says it is, you will eventually see an * next to the Michelin warranty excluding or reducing the mileage on the CT200h.
