Default How's Michelin X Radial - P195/70R14 90S

I know I should ask this before I did it. Anyway, I
replaced the tires on my 2000 Camry CE with Michelin X
Radial yesterday. 4 at $63 each with $50 mail-in rebate at
Sam's Club. Is this a good price? Costco have it at $76,
also with $50 rebate.

Generally I heard Michelin tires are good. But how about
this model? Roughly how many miles can I squeeze out of it?

My car had Dunlop tires that was originnaly equipped. I
heard they aren't that good. My car has only 36000 miles
but the tech showed me it's really time to replace all four
because we saw shiny metal stiches kind of thing on the
inner side of tires.

The tires they sell marked "Michelin X" are made specifically for the
discount houses.

The information is available here:

http://www.michelinman.com/catalog/t...tml?tiretype=0
&tire=7

According to the comparison page, they should be very good - and are
rated at 80,000 miles. I have the X Ones on my Camry, and the
difference between them and the Firestones that came on it is like
night and day.

I have those tires on my 1997 Camry LE. I am satisfied with them. By the
way, what is the CE trim of Camrys? How is it different than the LE or SE
trim?

I don't know for sure. Toyota no longer make Camry CE any
more, ended in 2001? Then added SE.

Personnaly I like to stick with a tire with the same rating
as the OEM. This is for safety and handling reasons.
Suspect cornering is not as flat/controlled with the S rated
as with the OEM H rated tires? Price was good - H rated
would have been $109 each for Michelins. I went with H
ratesd Bridgestone 902RE at $69 from Costco and was happy
with them --- think they had $40 rebate then. Boy, you were
living on the edge if metal cord was showing on all the
tires! Blow outs as speed and flip overs are not pretty.

The CE trim (base model) is replaced by the LE trim.

The trim catagories are now:

- LE (Luxury Edition)
- SE (Sport Edition)
- XLE (eXtra Luxury Edition)

I've had them on my car for about a year, and put 15K miles in both city and
highway (70-75 MPH) driving. So far, I love them. Good traction, quiet, little
obvious wear. Just keep them aired to the right pressure, you should be really
happy with them.
