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.

Tire Pros

Great longevity, never had tires that lasted this long

Tire Cons

Ultra sensitive to driver input, steering wheel moves a fraction, car goes that direction. I'm ok with it now, just took some getting used to

Regardless how long my car lasts, I will buy these tire over and over again.

Tire Pros

Great mileage.

Tire Cons

Expensive to replace.

Would appreciate notices to rotate. Otherwise, good tires; best price i could find. While expensive, these are the original tires for this vehicle. I do a lot of hwy driving and drove 60k before replacing. They probably had enough life to get through winter, but I didn't want to take a chance. These tires help my vehicle get over 40mpg.
