I have had mediocre to bad experiences with Michelin Tires in the past. I was a little uneasy about buying these tires. All that I can say is that I have been pleasantly surprised! These are super tires. The entire Michelin Organization should be very proud of this product. They do everything extremely well, except my front tires have a slight slip on road painted surfaces in the rain. On unpainted wet asphalt, they have tremendous grip. That is the grip that counts. They are a giant step-up over the Continentals which Ford used as standard equipment and I stayed with for seven years.
I am looking forward to see how these new Michelin's handle Winter driving and how they hold-up as the miles roll by.
