These tires sold me on the quality of Michelin for all future tire purchases! What an improvement over the Goodyear OEM. After installation, I tried to make these tires spin in the rain at each stoplight, but was unable to. The first time they slipped at all was after the temperature dropped below freezing. They grip well in snow, rain as well as dry pavement. They are very quiet and ride smooth. Usually you get one or the other, but somehow Michelin has figured out how to put it all into one. They are also manufactured in the US, something rare these days.
