Just put these on to replace the Michelin MXM4. OMG so far very good. Just put two tires on in the front. We had one of those bibicle rainstorms extremely heavy down pour. Drove on the Taconic pkwy in NY state a very curvy road and these thing didn't slip. Going to buy two more for the rear. Very satisfied...Very Safe!!!!

Bang for the buck! If the tires last as long as they appear at this point,(1/32) of wear or less, they will rank up with the best tires I've owned for everyday driving. They are very quite, and smooth riding. Water on the road is of little concern until pooling occurs, then a little grab. My biggest complaint is the slowish response to input. They on my older Volvo, and it's suspension is in great condition, (Koni shocks/struts, IPD sway bars). For comparison, also have an Volvo S60R with Michelin Super Sport's on it, they can't compete, but are in a completely different category. Hankook are still a great tire.

What an amazing tire! Put a set (265 rear, 225 front) on newly bought used Porsche 911 cabriolet. Only 4000 mi so far but great performance. Amazing stability on wet roads (I mean Florida downpour wet).Found myself at 70+ mph with no hydroplane feeling. Wouldn't recommend it though for general safety. This is my 3rd 911. Have had them all. Yokohama, Parelli, Michelin. These are the best! Wear looks great. Will return with review after a few more thousand.

Recently replaced the Goodyear Eagle RSA's that came from the factory with these Hankooks. HUGE Improvement! Very impressed with them over the first approx 1000 miles that they have been on the vehicle. Quieter than the Goodyears, just as smooth as the Goodyears, and much better traction (both dry and wet, no experience with snow yet). Was a bit worried about this purchase at first, since the survey sample size was much smaller than the similarly rated (but much more expensive) Conti's, plus the price for these Hankooks seemed too good to be true based on the performance ratings. As always, TireRack provided great info, and I don't regret the purchase decision for an instant! I would definitely buy another set of these.

A marked improvement over OEM runflats in terms of traction and less rigid over bumps. Look good on car, minimal road noise, and solid cornering. I was hesitant on getting these, but they were an excellent buy in terms of how they work with the car.

I bought these tires to replace the run-flats on my MINI JCW, and had excellent results. So, I recently decided to do the same with my 335xi. The difference that the Pilot Sport A/S 3's made in ride quality, road noise, responsiveness, and overall drivaility is pretty amazing...even my wife notices how much smoother and more stable the car feels with the Michelins vs. the stock Conti Run Flats. I highly recommend these tires.

Initial Review, 600 Miles on Tires
July 05, 2014

Bought these on the stellar reviews for performance...and awesome grip! ...and yes, they certainly do have some ridiculously amazing grip around the corners. Hammered them hard around some country roads on this nice July day and could not feel any slipping in the corners whatsoever. Treadwear seems to be very minimal at this point and I have no reservations about the tires at 600 miles. The only negative that I could possibly point out would be that you must be careful when pulling out of a gravel drive or parking area. The large grooves in the tire design tend to pick up larger pieces of gravel, so go slow and allow them to work themselves out of the tire tread.
These tires are definitely awesome! I would highly recommend the to anyone who likes to drive the car the way it was designed to perform.

Having previously owned more than 50 cars, I was a person who distained the "off brands " and had only Michelins or Conti's on my cars.When I bought this BMW, I really disliked the run flats and discarded them for these Hankoos after using the wonderful resources of Tire Rack. I've been blown away by these tires. I recently did a fast run from Florida to Eastern Canada in 4 days (2400 miles) and was thoroughly impressed by the tires. When you consider how very reasonable these cost, they are a no brainer to recommend.

Purchased these tires approximately 2 weeks ago. Had them installed to replace BF Goodrich tires. I have had Michelen/BF/Goodyear on this car. WOW. I can say I made the right choice. The ride is smoother and road noise is 100% gone%. Steering is very responsive. I had no idea what I had became a custom too. Handling in high speed curves is also awesome. The Accord feels better than new & handles perfectly. To make this even a better story. My gas mileage has improved by 2 MPG. That is with full AC on daily..

OEM on my Denali XL, put 110K on them and replaced them with the same thing. That is not a typo--110,000 miles on this set of tires. They did need replacing, but they weren't bald--had 3/32 of tread left at worst point. Never expected to get that kind of mileage out of a tire. Key is to rotate every time you change your oil. These are very fairly priced for what you get with this tire.

This is an excellent tire. I have driven it in heavy rain and it does not hydroplane even at speeds in excell of 75 mph. The road noise is imperceptible. Handling is great. I highly recommend this tire. I researched for weeks and settled on this tire after reading many reviews. I am confident I made a good decision. So far, this has been one of the best tires I have ever owned.

I bought a full set of these tires as replacement for the original tires, because I honestly liked the way the originals handled. In terms of handling and wet traction these tires have not disappointed. Performance in snow and ice has been mediocre. BUT in terms of life expectancy, they do not measure up. I am presently forced to replace a pair of them due to tread wear at 31,000 miles. Only 8,000 miles of these were as front drive tire usage; the other 23,000 miles were on the rear. As an easy-going driver, with balanced, properly pressurized usage, I expect to hit or exceed full warranty tread life miles, not only 2 thirds of it.

The outer edges of these tires disintegrate after only 5000, especially the front tires. Yes, the alignment was checked twice during this period and the tire pressure maintained. This is clearly a recall Michelin has chosen not to make and they should be shamed into doing something about it. The same complaints are all over the boards, take a look for yourself.

This is my 3rd consecutive set of Yokohama Parada Spec-X's on the Infinti FX35 AWD. I average around 45,000 miles per set and they are an all-around excellent value for the money. Excellent tread life, great dry/wet responsiveness, and great ride comfort and low noise. I would not hesitate to recommend these to anyone with a similar crossover application. I will buy another set for this vehicle when these are done.

Just purchased these Potenza RE760 Sport tires and had was excited after reading reviews on here about the performance and the ride quality. Being a tire aficionado I was chomping at the bit to get a good run in with these tires. Now that I got to drive these I must say they do not disappoint at all. First run was down the highway with road noise and ride quality significantly better than the BF Goodrich G-force's. It just so happened to be absolutely pouring later on and the road was holding water. Got a top speed of 95 mph and never felt so confident in my 2001 BMW 525i. I had to get a good run in on the most twisty road I know with the slickness from the rain and found traction so good it felt like the car was on rails. With no mileage warranty and some spirited driving it'll be interesting to see how they hold up over miles but I must say that this tire can make your car feel like a new one with a big jump in tire manufacturer, Bridestone versus Goodrich.

Initial impressions:

1) Tirerack's review wasn't kidding that this tire produces booming sounds when hitting bumps, which gives the impression of a much more severe bump than it really is

2) Ride is good, but multiple bumps in succession produces jiggling motions (wasn't the case with the prior tires)

3) Steering sensitivity is smooth and direct. Initial resistance is light off of center, and then builds as more input is dialed in

4) I'm getting vibrations in the steering that I didn't have before, might have to get rebalanced

At this point, I'm somewhat disappointed in this tire. I will update once I get more miles.

Fantastic ... I have had many different performance tires, and the SuperSport is absolutely the tops. Fantastic grip, great road feel, and modest noise levels -- even ride comfort is very good for a 35-series tire. Conti's ExtremeContact DW is good, but this is still clearly better.

Tire wear? At this point (20,000 km/12,500 miles) I would guess that I still have half the tread left, which I am quite satisfied with. Others have had worse experience, don't know whether that's because of different driving styles or road surfaces.
