Tire Pros

Long Lasting

Tire Cons

They don't absorb bumps in the road. Good Year Triple Treads Far Superior.

Have had three sets of Good year Triple Treads and thought I would try the Michelins this time as they were highly recommended. These Michelins are way to low profile and very hard rubber to get the big mileage and therefore don't absorb bumpy road conditions which makes for an uncomfortable ride. Back to Good Year next time as they are far superior in ride comfort and get long mileage.
