Michelin Pilot Exalto A/S

This is the third set of these tires on my VW TDI Golf and they are great tires. No problems at all. 45 to 50k per set - consistantly. I drive on curvy and hilly mountain roads of western North Carolina, and I push these tires hard, with no problems. Tires are quiet, virtually undetectable. They move a lot of water - when new, you can't even get them to lift in the deepest water, now almost to the wear bars, and they still do well in heavy rain - very safe in these tires. Snow traction is fair until about 4 to 6 inches, then you're done, no surprise. A little more cost up front, but well worth it in the end.
