Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus
Initial Review: 10,000 miles on tires
March 30, 2013

I had a 2009 Genesis 4.6 and purchased my first A/S plus after my Michelin HXMX4's wore out at 40,000 miles. These tires were very responsive and a nice improvement during canyon driving. After 5,000 miles I traded the 2009 in for a 2012 Gensis 5.0 R Spec. I replaced the OEM Continentals after 1,000 miles, Conti's were too cushiony for a vehicle like the R Spec. Had the 245 45 ZR 19's put on and were night and day better than the OE Conti's. I enjoy driving in the canyon roads of southern CA and these tires have not disappointed. Tread wear is not an issue and wet/dry performance is impressive. For a vehicle with 429 HP these A/S Plus tires are doing a great job. I drove in the San Bernadino mountains a few weeks back after a good snowfall and I didn't experience any issues with traction. This is my second set, one for each vehicle, and I am extremely satisfied with these A/S Plus tires
