I think it's standard to send the tyres back before offering a refund because the manufacturer can determine whether the tyre was over or under inflated (I'm sure it was neither). It's a pain I know, but I experienced the same thing with a rear Avon, and I really rate my local tyre guys.
Standard practice here also..... you buy your new tire and await word.

Another thought - If Michelin come back with a no, it might be worth pursuing it further (ie small claims court for the value of the tyre). I think you would need the tyre back in your possession (it's technically still yours after all).
This course of action might still not work in your favour, and there might be much gnashing of teeth involved, so it's a last resort.
Also I'm no legal expert!

If they say it's not the tyre, then, as it's still yours, ask for it back. That'll possibly put them in a tizzy. If they can't/won't give it back, then tell them they owe you for a perfectly good tyre, by their own admission.
