Ok I as stated I own a cts V coupe. Although I drive spirted and I mean spirted, usually on the highway and when you run into the cluster of cars that think they avoiding traffic by slowing down. I then drop into 4th gear and maneuver through gaps until I have open space. These tires are definitely comparable to the Michelin's . After the break in period and proper air pressure adjustments i doubt anyone would know the difference. I don't drive spirited in the rain, but tires do stop well and traction isn't a problem but with aid of stabilitrac and traction control this or any other tire should have no problem. The tires are as quite the michelins and corner very well. Sorry I can't comment on the treadwear but its better than the michelins. Factory recommends 32 psi, but as stated its a recommendation. I prefer 34 front and rear, car handles like a dream .Anyone buying these tires should note they have to be broken in, after that have fun!
