I'll also say Michelin are my favorite.

My truck came with Firestone tires, and I might be the unluckiest person in the world, but for the first time in over 40 years I had a blowout (of any brand). I have had either belt separations or outright blowouts with Firestone. My truck is a 2012, and the last time I used Firestone I was a teenager driving a 1969 Nova SS 396 back in 1972 (all four tires failed at various times) [emoticon]

I've been satisfied with Firestone Transforce AT tires on both my old and new truck.

Never ever anymore Michelin"s on my truck. Bought a set of the LTX's when they still had the 70,000 mile warranty. They cost me $1250 at Discount Tire. They only lasted 36,000 miles! Decided that I was not going to replace them with Michelin, Went to Discount Tire to complain about them and they said they would sell me a new set of Michelin LTX Defenders installed for $580.00, due to warranty considerations on my original set of tires. . I said Uhm, that's a good price and I bought another set. They have now been reduced to a 40,000 mile warranty because they do not last.

I asked the manager how long these new tires will last and he said that you will be lucky to get 40,000 miles out of them.

My OEM tires were Bridgestones (do not remember model) and they lasted over 60,000 miles. When these Michelin's are gone I will either go back to Bridgestone or maybe try Cooper or Toyo's.

I use Michelin's on all my cars and they are good and last a long time.
