Probably have the same as mine, Energy Savers..Did you rotate them every 5k-6k miles... Keep the tire pressure at 35-36 psi cold...Avoid potholes and ruts, so not to knock wheels out of alignment..And don't drive like a bat out of hell...These are noisy tires,. wish mine would wear out..Approaching 19k miles on our 2018 Ford Escape and took it in for an oil change. Dealer said we need new tires. Feels like the original Michelin tires should last longer than 19k miles with the pretty basic driving we do. Am I wrong?
You’re not wrong to expect more than a couple of years and 19,000 miles on your original set of tires if you properly maintain them. Keep the tires properly inflated and rotate them every oil change.Approaching 19k miles on our 2018 Ford Escape and took it in for an oil change. Dealer said we need new tires.

When you say 'WE', you mean you or the dealer?.. If the dealer, have you seen them actually being rotated?? The uneven wear suggests that they weren't...My neighbors Audi dealer was pulling that one off on him..We rotate the tires every oil change and keep them properly inflated. Tread is 5/32 on one tire, 4/32 on two and 3/32 on the fourth. I’m going to check on the warranty of the tire and see if that offers any relief.
My first thought would be that applies to any failures/ faults from manufacture with the tyres eg. lumps in the sidewalls etc. Not that they warrant the tyre should last for over 36000 miles.Per the owners manual-
For vehicles within the New Vehicle Limited Warranty time in service
and mileage coverage period, defective tires will be replaced on a pro
rata adjustment basis according to the following mileage-based
MILES DRIVEN PERCENT OF PARTS COVERED BY FORD
It covers both-failure and there is prorated wear. Need to look in the owners manual for the specific tire warranty-different for each specific type of tire.My first thought would be that applies to any failures/ faults from manufacture with the tyres eg. lumps in the sidewalls etc. Not that they warrant the tyre should last for over 36000 miles.
If you do a lot of highway driving you'll get great mileage; if you drive mostly in the city / suburbs then they will wear a lot quicker. If you drive aggressively they'll wear quicker.
(I think I've yet to get over 30000km out of any tyres in 30 odd years of driving. I usually buy high performance tyres which won't last a long distance.)
Glad your new tires are working out but if your original tires were Continental contact 5 like my originals they are certainly not cheap. Approx A$300 each (220 US).My 2016 Escape's original tires were not Michelins. I don't remember now, but I think they were Continentals. Anyway, as I remember they were worn out at about 20K. They were terrible in the snow, which is not good for an AWD car. They also didn't handle well and the steering didn't self center. I put on new Toyo Celcius CUV tires and WOW what a difference, the car handles WAY better, the steering self centers, and they are great in the snow. I think the manufacturers mostly put on the cheapest tires they can get for OEM.
