Thanks for recommending Michelin tyres for my Honda Civic - they've done 41,000 miles!

I thought that you might be interested to know that some years ago you recommended Michelin tyres for my Honda Civic. I am just having them replaced after 41,000 miles and the garage tells me that there is still a few thousand miles left in them.

That's the sort of tyre life Michelin prides itself on. Though one reader emailed that he had managed more than 200,000 miles from a BF Goodrich tyre, and could prove it.
