Raising price of tires?

Michelin customer service is a bunch of deceitful inbound call cowboys. I have a pair of Michelin X-Ice with about 18,000kms and they cannot be further used for safe driving. Defective tread stripe on all four tires. They cost me $950 and were used one-and-a-half winters. The Warranty is for 60,000 but Michelin are not even honest. They lied multiple times that they didn't have tread readings that I went and had forwarded to them from a Michelin dealer they recommended. Deceitful and negligent. What makes it worse is the CEO (alexis.garcin@michelin.com ?)for North America is based in Auvergne, France. How convenient to pocket hard working consumer dollars on the other side of the ocean and then dine in Michelin 5-Star restaurants in a different time zone and continent to handle complaints. Pathetic company. Shocking. I made my new tires Good-Year and it's been a very revealing experience with a pathetic, deceitful, negligent company.
