September 03, 2014

I've had this set of tires for 36000 miles and am nearing the wear bars on the back tires. There is still 4/32 left in the front. I would not call them unsafe, but they don't inspire confidence at all. They have enough feedback in the dry to let you know when they break traction. MPG has been as advertised. Snow/Ice traction is very low but have not got me stuck during the usual dusting of snow.

I drove with these tires on a GP racetrack and also on the Nurburgring Nordschleife and the tires did really when when pushed to the limits. Some wear improved the precision considerably, as for the first few thousand miles the steering response felt not so precise. These are awesome tires if you do not want to bother with a dedicated set of winter and summer tires. Highly recommended.

I just put on my 5th set of tires on a 2012 charger srt8. These tires out handle anything I have tried. This is a very fast heavy car. My son and I have done 3 power tours and several trips to regional tracks. 2.5 mile, scca, nhra. As the tires wore down the hydroplaning began. The dry traction only gets better. In this size there is a resonance on concrete that can be loud. I was told that it was specific to this size on this car.??? They are the best tire but loud in this size

I wasn't sure what to expect from my first set of all-season tires in decades. They are good for the money and have good stability and low rolling resistance compared to "extreme" performance tires. The grip is good, but in the rain their only real benefit is that they resist hydroplaning very well. The wet weather grip in my lightweight car is not impressive. I am looking forward to them lasting a long time!

I was a little taken aback when my Genesis 3.8 HTRAC was delivered with Hankook tires. I just didn't equate Hankook with luxury - but then again there are a lot of people who don't equate Hyundai with luxury. So like the Hyundai Genesis is a luxury car by any standard, the Hankook Ventus S1 Noble 2 (quite a name there!) needs to be evaluated by what it does not what it's name is. So as to the big questions: ride, noise, dry traction, wet traction, snow traction - here goes.
Ride - Excellent. Inflated to the 35 psi noted on the tire placard the ride is composed and the tires soak up impacts quite well. As good as any tires I have had before and better than many.
Noise - Very quite. That may be more a function of the car as Hyundai engineers put sound deadning material throughout the Genesis.
Dry Traction - Great. Corners well. With the drive mode set to "Sport" handles on and off ramps at speed with minimal body roll and no tire squeal.
Wet Traction - Had a couple of real "gully washers" the last couple of weeks and the tires did very well. Felt very stable at highway speeds with no drama and no evedence at all of hydroplaneing. Corners well and accelerates extremely well. I like these in the wet.
Snow Traction - Unknown. It was 95 degrees when I bought the car in late June and it's been in the high 80's and 90's ever since. Not much chance for snow yet. But in three or four months that will change. I will report back after I have a chance to drive it in the snow.
Would I buy these tires again. Most probably I will since they are a "known quantity". At my age I do not like a lot of drama. That's why I bought a Genesis Sedan instead of a Mustang GT

These tires are excellent...very quiet and smooth ride. I can actually feel them gripping the road and I have not hydroplaned in them, even through deep water. I am also very please with the warranty, Continental includes road hazard for the first year or 2/32 of tread wear.... they do not just repair your tire, they actually replace it with a brand new one during this period. So far I have picked up a nail twice and had both tires replaced at no charge, this saved me $300+ dollars so far! I am not aware of any other tire manufacturer who includes this warranty on all of their tires at no charge.... thanks Continental! I will definitely continue to purchase and recommend Continental tires!

I drive about 6500 miles a month as a courier, in all weather conditions. This tire is superb in wet and dry conditions, including heavy rain. I drove these one day (slowly) in light snow upon ice from freezing rain the night before, all around Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri, without incident, but I could not recommend these tires for those who have to deal with significant winter weather. I drive through hills with plenty of curves almost daily, and cornering and steering is more than adequate, even if this isn't a high performance tire. Comfortable and quiet ride; I can listen to music played at a low level. As ridiculous as it seems, the two tires with 43,000 miles on them still have 7/32 tread left; the two with 33,000 have 8/32. They started out with 9.5/32. The only reason I probably won't put them on next time is because I want an all weather tire, . But this is an outstanding 3 season tire.

Great tire; another home run from Michelin. Am also running MVX4s on two other vehicles: the wife's Toyota Avalon and my son's Dodge Charger SXT. over 150,000 miles on all three sets of tires without so much as a hiccup !! Although the mileage on my set has surpassed all expectations, including 60K+ of trouble-free wear, in the interest of maintaining the best performance available, I'll be swapping these out for an identical set in the October/Novemeber timeframe !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I cannot "say" this loudly enough...these tires are great!
I pulled off a set of BF Goodrich Rugged Terrains after 10K miles due to poor ride, very loud and loss of fuel economy
I went with the LT version of this tire to make sure it would support the weight of the vehicle and I am glad i did.
The LTX MS2's have totally transformed how my Armada drives and rides. Much smoother, much quieter. I am ready to start checking MPG to see if I have made any impovements on that as well. I am sure that I have just in the smoothness of the ride vs the Rugged Terrains.
Wish I would have pulled off the Rugged Terrains even sooner!!
Great first impressions of the LTX MS2!!

Replaced the OEM Goodyear LS2 with a set of these Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 and am very happy with the result. Had a nail too close to the sidewall in one of my tires with almost 30K miles on them and decided to replace the set instead of trying to put one new tire on. The ride on the non-run flats is so much better! The ride on the Goodyears was very harsh and you felt every bump in the road. The traction was also starting to slip in the corners, the new Michelins stick in the corners and have great traction, are quite and ride quality makes the vehicle feel like an entirely different car! So much better, would highly recommend over the OEM Goodyear runflats. Only downside is no peace of mind if you get a flat.

I had to write a review after reading some of the ones posted. This is the third set of these tires I've had on this vehicle and they are superb. Got 65K-66K on each set. I can only surmise that these other fellows did not keep them inflated and balanced. No reason not to get 60K plus. I have only used Michelins for the past 30 years. My Odyssey came with the Michelin PAX tires as original equipment. That was my only bad experience with the brand.

Bought these tires to replace my stock Michelin Primacy MXM4s. After 15000 miles, here are my impressions:
1) Fantastic contact with pavement but at the expense of somewhat increased road noise.
2) Excellent traction under dry and wet conditions, so so in snow, awful on ice.
3) No visible wear after 15K miles

Overall, I am very happy with these tires and would purchase them again.

Greatly improves the ride and handling of the car, road noise is very minimal over cracks and grooves. Lots of confidence in the wet, I've driven through heavy torrential rain this summer on the highway and have been able to maintain control through unsuspecting puddles that arise on the road. Upsizing from the stock 185/65R15 make the car handle as should have left the factory, just a touch wider and taller help improve the ride A LOT. I'm sure many Versa drivers experience the wallowing effect in fast crosswinds and this is not apparent anymore with these tires. I'm gonna update this comment when I find myself measuring the tread depth and noticing expanding grooves.

I bought these tires and a set of 18" Hyundai rims to replace the 19" factory wheels on the car. I had two hydroplaning incidents and a terrible ride quality during my first 10,000 miles. The change was like night to day. The cars ride quality was 50% better along with an improved feel in cornering an no issues in some extreme rain and 6" deep standing water! I would trade a slight hum on smooth asphalt for less shock from the steering wheel and a tire-wheel package that is safe to drive in wet conditions.
