Follow-Up Review: 35,000 miles on tires
February 08, 2012
After 35,000 miles of 80% fast highway driving (80mph+) these tires have never been a worry. They track and hold perfectly in wet and dry conditions even when pushed to sphinkter check. Concrete or grooved pavement no issue. Perhaps harsh on potholes and transitions. The good news is that my little sleeper sedan can bury a WRX or TL in the turns. Now the rears are worn in the center, the fronts are still good, Could be the 4 wheel steering, it's why I'm back to buy two more. I think my poor winter ratings are more a function of the car- rear wheel drive and wide sport tire than the tire itself- I spent a cold morning in a snow bank on a very slight hill when the rear came around on me- shoulda gone a bit slower?
Initial Review: 10,000 miles on tires
April 05, 2011

I've had these Michelins on my 6-speed G35 sedan for about 7 months, through a New Jersey winter. I bought the car off lease with GoodYear Eagles, these tires are a big improvement in any type of weather. With rear wheel drive and traction control I was OK in light snow but the car isn't intended for real winter driving anyway. Even in very heavy rain I have complete control- 4 wheel steering with no worries. I drive highway fast, through the city and the NJ Turnpike. Potholes can be jarring but the tires do not track highway seams or bridge grids like a set of Dunlops I once had. I'm very pleased with the tires and would certainly buy them again. Of course they are new, so lets see if I can hit 50K miles on them.
