You can't go wrong with a Michelin tire. It's all we buy for our vehicles and are always been happy with the perfomance. Combine Michelin and Discount Tire and you always get a great tire deal.

Tire Pros

Michelin first quality.

Tire Cons

Would like to have had a size 205 (OEM) tire.

Michelin is always a superior tire...I've owned numerous sets throughout 45 years of driving. Discount mistakenly ordered 190 size rather than 205 (OEM) tires, which I accepted. The narrower tires seem to perform OK.

Tire Pros

Smooth riding, great traction for an all-season tire. Too soon to know about tread life.

Tire Cons

A little noisier than the GY Comfort-treads they replaced, but only a little.

These tires were a cost-effective replacement for a set of Goodyears. Decided to trust Michelins after reading reviews in a popular consumer magazine. Happy so far, but at 6000 miles figure I'm only 10% into tire life, at most.
