Have you checked into Falken Tires? There is one with an 80,000 mile Warranty and the Tread Pattern is just as good as the Michelin.

I had the same problem with my wife's 2009 XC90 and paid for an alignment. The truck was barely out of alignment but the wear was pretty bad. I called Volvo to complain and they alerted the dealership to a service bulletin. Volvo covered 2 tires and an alignment. The other tires are good and I didn't want to shell out $900 for just 2 Michelin tires that would barely last 25k miles.
#164 of 164 Bridgestone Tire Recommendations

Purchased Bridgestone HTs from Firestone 34K miles ago. Luckily, they had a 60K mile warranty on them. The bridgestones ran well for the 34K I had them. Because of the tire warranty, I had free rotations and alignments for the life of the tires. We had the tires rotated and alignment looked at everytime we did an oil change so that was convenient. Here is my dilemma. I can go with bridgestone's/ firestone again being that I have a $230 tire warranty credit but 34K on a 60K tire is not exactly good. The tires were quiet and rode well.
Tires on this SUV are a mess. This will be my 4th set of tires after the OEMs, Bridgestones and some cheap things that barely got 20K after the OEMs. Any suggestions?
Has anyone ordered tires online and had them installed by a discount tire or firestone?
