After replacing the OE Bridgestone Potenza's every 20K miles, I finally tried the Michelin Pilot Sports. The ride and road feel is just as good, if not better, than the Bridgestones, the Michelins just last much longer. After 20-22K on the bridgestones, they were completely shot (and I mean completely - with a noticible performacne drop after 18K). I now have 20K on my Michelin Pilots and they drive as well as the day I bought them - with half the treadware left. I love these tires and strongly recommend them.
