I replaced the OEM Michelin Pilot Sports with these tires. Although they are not Summer Performance tires, they seem to be a great compromise for the convenience of not having to change out the tires each season.
The handling suffers slightly compared to the Pilot Sports. The Michelin tire gave you that "on rails" feeling when cornering, and felt quite stable in all conditions.
The Bridgestones really shouldn't be compared to a summer performance tire anyways. The ride comfort and noise level compared to the Michelins is day and night. I can actually hear my radio at normal levels now!
Only time will tell if these will live up to the reviews I read prior to purchasing the tires. Tire Rack was as usual superb with their fast shipping and professional attitude.
I believe I made a perfect choice for a replacement tire....Now have the best of both worlds, and still some cash in my pocket.....Hope they perform well this winter.
