Michelin Pilot Exalto A/S
Initial Review: 40,000 miles on tires
These tires became very loud as they aged over the three years of ownership.
The road noise at high highway speeds was intolerable! Replaced with Yokohama Avid Envidors and they seem much less noisy. I hope they stay that way!
The tires also had poor wet weather performance. It seems, like all Michelin tires that I've owned, that they tend to harden up and provide less traction as the age.
