Noticed today our rear tires are finally down to the minimum wear indicators. We put them on in 2009, at 8600 miles, today we indicate 73,000 miles.
I guess we will replace with another set of Michelins XA2 or 3 before we go one any more long trips.

Obviously you know how to take care of your tires. It makes no sense to switch brands when you have a proven track record with Michelins.
I have had similar experience with mine.

I'm just amazed that ten year old tires didn't shred themselves on the highway.

When I worked around fleet vehicles they would "age out" tires when they hit 7 years old even if they still had tread.

Coming up from Texas last week we were running 65 +- MPH in 90- degree heat, no problems.

Lots of CYA built into tire warrantees, What I worry about most is road hazard damage.

Someone actually wore out a set of Michelin’s before the sidewall cracks got to big...amazing. I went 10 years on my 6 rear tires and they still look good on the back of my dump truck...15 years old.
