Tire Pros

Excellent performance tire.

Tire Cons

Dangerous in snow/ ice. NOT an A/S tire.

This is NOT an a/s tire and shame on Michelin for marketing it in that way. I have had almost every michelin a/s tire on my vehicles over the past 20 years and have been through new england winters without issue or need of snow tires. While these tires retain their excellent grip in freezing temps, they are dangerous on any amount of snow or ice. I traveled from boston to ny during the worst storm i have ever experienced last year with the pilot a/s plus (the tire the ps3 a/s replaces) without issue. I would expect a superseding tire to at least have equal capability. Now, for the first time in 20 years, i am forced to purchase snow tires after already spending close to $1k on the ps3 a/s. thanks michelin !

Tire Pros

Excellent tire for traction, ride comfort and handling.

Tire Cons

Little noisier than my last set of tires.

Had the V rated version of this tire which is not listed other than being a little louder than other tires it was superior on all other aspects.
