Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (W- or Y-Speed Rated)
Initial Review: 1,500 miles on tires
April 23, 2014

I am coming off OEM Dunlops (not a fan) and then Sumitomo HTR ZIII's (summer tire that gave me 21k miles) to these -- and it is a world of difference for the good! These tires make my A8 feel like it should, and yet provide the traction I need when I toss it around a bit. Obviously, with only 1500 miles so far, I'm not able to comment on wear, but this thing rides better and is quiet at highway speeds (somewhat elevated from the road sign limits). I don't need something for snow here in Houston, but for the rain and overall handling of my A8, I got the right tire! No more summer tires for me...
