Michelin 20 inch tires

I have found dryrot cracking around all 4 of my Michelin 20 inch tires. The truck has 13,000 miles on it. Has anyone else noticed this on their tires?
It is all the way around all 4 tires and is about 1/2 to 3/4 inch away from the rim. Just want to know if anyone else has this issue.
Thanks

I had this issue on my 2011 20" Michelins. I never did anything about it as I didn't keep the truck very long.

Broncojason,Glad to hear Ford did replace them . How many miles did you have on them.
I have not heard from my dealer or Ford as of this time. Michelin doesn't seem to care as they say "just keep an eye on them". I didn't notice this until the 2nd tire rotation a month ago.

At a similar milage my 20" Mich fell apart. Cracking and chunks of tread falling out. Ford could care less. Called Michelin a few phone calls they steped up and help out with replacments.

Having the same problem with mine. Should I go to the dealer or a tire place?

I only had a couple hundred miles on them before I noticed they were cracked. Ford replaced them, but I did sign a paper that they were sending to Michelin, so I'm assuming Michelin were the ones to cover the final bill.

I had the same issue with only 3000 miles on mine. Michelin did nothing for me. Offered 50% off a new set of tires. I went back to the dealership a second time and raised hell with the service manager...needless to say I drove off with four new free tires. Sometimes you just have to stand your ground. Cracked tires on a 60k truck is unacceptable.

Well I got a reply from Ford today. Never did hear from the dealer (Ramsey Ford of Rising sun, Md.) The tires are a wear item and not covered by warranty. I am about to reply to them. will update.

I used Al Packer in Whitemarsh. I couldn't get anything out of Ramsey's. Service manager there hooked me up. Had to go through him to get anywhere there though. Service writer wouldn't do anything for me.
