I bought these tires to replace OEM Pirellis on my wife's Volvo, and installed them just prior to a driving vacation in Tennessee. What a difference Michelin tires made in her car. I always loved everything about the car except driving it! It is now incredibly smooth, quiet, and a dream to drive. We've had no rain since installation, so I can't rate that. We drove on lots of concrete, which used to be really noisy, and now the noise and harshness is just gone. I run 38-40 PSI, and drive fairly fast, but not hard. IMO, nice cars should all come on tires this good. My truck and other Volvo wagon are on Michelins too, and will remain so. Thanks to Tire Rack for great pricing and service.
