Michelin Agilis Crossclimate C-Metric

Hello all-

After a thoroughly confusing trip around the deepest recesses of the interwebs, I finally became satisfied that the C-Metrics were the tire of choice for increasing the poor load capacity of our beloved C-Class Greyhawks. I bought a new set and took off from Alabama a few weeks ago. While in rural Iowa, the inside passenger duality tire valve blew. The valve- not the tire. My TPMS saved the day and the tire.

I donít necessarily attribute the failure to Michelin- more to the installers in Alabama. Or maybe my stubborn application of a TPMS sensor to an inside tire valve extender? I feel like the vibration caused the valve to fail. Yikes! My bad.

Otherwise, the tires have been dreamy. Smooth ride. I do not detect any more stiffness than the Hankook factory set. I like em. I recommend em. And they look kinda cool?

3,500 miles so far and (other than the misstep in Iowa), all is well. Please reply if any other knuckleheads like me have tried-out the C-metrics with perhaps more success and/or grace? Thanks.

I recently put them on my Ram 3500 dually TV and have nothing but good things to say about them thus far!
