Yes that is correct Ford does not warranty the tires. There is a supplement in your warranty package just on the tire and how to handle it. From what I understand the Michelin's on f-250 mostly are failing because they are pressured to 65 psi per door panel. The tires are load E and manufacturer psi is 85 psi. Ford lowered the psi to keep the trucks at 10k# rating while our axles are rated combined in the neighborhood of 12k#. In short we are running the tires under the manufacturers pressure rating thus causing them to wear out prematurely. I personally run 78 in the front and 80 in the rear it's a bit rougher ride than at 65 psi but I do not have any wear issues and plenty of tread left at 39000 miles. I cannot wait till these things wear out so I can put Nittos back on I got 90k miles out of my last set on my 96' 350.
