Bheckel169 Posted March 22, 2007 Share Posted March 22, 2007 Thought I'd share this with all of you who have the Michelin Pilot Roads on 06's 1200 RT's. After only 7 months and 3800 miles I happened to notice hairline cracks around the rim of the front tire. Called up my BMW dealer in Salt Lake City and basically, they said, "fung you". Called up R & R in Salt Lake and they were great. Jeff Thurman made 2 calls to the Michelin distributor and the distributor actually said, "wouldn't be a front tire on the 1200 RT would it?" It seems they had a batch of fronts tires that did not cure well and they're having some problems with cracking on these tires. If you haven't taken a closer look, you might want to. The distributor was great and gave Jeff an RA number to return it to them. Basically, I took the tire off, brought it down and Jeff and his crew, installed my new tire and balanced it for $5.53. Great service and you know where I'll be going for all my service needs. I would recommend all of you who have these tires to take a closer look at your tires. Bruce Link to comment
