The awards are the 33rd and 34th J.D. Power and Associates Awards for Michelin North America – an overwhelming 81 percent of all of the awards in the history of the category.
“We believe that we consistently deliver the best consumer satisfaction because we deliver the best quality tires with the highest level of technology and performance,” said Tom Chubb, vice president of marketing, Michelin Automotive Industry Division.
“Tires are a key component of vehicle performance and owner satisfaction and we work very closely with our vehicle manufacturer partners to tune the right tire for each vehicle. This close development partnership results in an excellent driving experience for consumers. We believe that the J.D.
