So many of your correspondents complain about tyres that it is nice to be able to record my unalloyed satisfaction with the service offered by the Michelin Tyre Company today.
I bought a secondhand Simca some 2-1/2 years ago with 28,000 genuine miles on the clock which had apparently been fitted with a new set of Michelin “X” shortly before purchase as they looked quite unworn.
The car has now done 69,800 miles and overnight I had my second slow puncture in over 40,000 miles.
The treads still looked only half worn, and the puncture appeared to be due to a small cut on the wall of one of the rear tyres.
The Michelin depot in Hove examined the tyre and decided there was a fault in the cover for which they, as manufacturers, were responsible and offered me a new cover at 60% allowance.
Considering the mileage these tyres have done, this treatment seems to me to border on the fantastic, and I feel the least I can do is to ask you to give it the happy publicity of your correspondence columns.
