Michelin Pilot Sport 3
Initial Review: 2,000 miles on tires
November 01, 2012

I drive mainly in the city and on highways with a few trackdays a year. These tires were stellar on the race track, resisting understeer very well on long constant-speed corners with decreasing-radius turns. Grip is very good, wet or dry. It's a little hard to believe that these 320-treadwear street tires are so good at cornering and braking when run competitively. They even ride very well at +5 psi over stock air pressure. The only downside I can note is high levels of road noise, developing at about 45 mph and up, but it's a decent compromise when everything else about the tire is so good.
