It's my first experience with winter tires ever. these sottozero 3 winter tire is simply extraordinary! My bmw is rear wheel drive only. these tires make my car behave like an all-wheel drive car. I went to snowboarding everyweek in last winter. The car has been through light snow, deep snow situation, and even helped me survive through a storm. I changed to...  Read More

I have a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee (JGC). I put 62,775 on the OEM set of tires with no complaints. I only changed them out as we were going into winter (which turned out to be a non-event that year) and could probably have gotten another 10K or so miles out of them. I replaced them with the same tire as there was no option in the 265/50-20 size at that time....  Read More

Very happy with this set of tires on my Porsche. Handling and comfort are fantastic. Haven't had them long enough to determine tread wear, but I am expecting improvement over the previous P Zero's. I would highly recommend these tires for any sports car. The only thing I find is these Michelins seem to have more road noise than the P Zeros. Not inexpensive...  Read More

This is the best all season tire I have ever purchased and it is especially apparent in the winter when all my neighbors are sliding around the streets and stuck on our local hill spinning their tires going nowhere and I simply drive on by.Added to that is the remarkable wear I am getting. I went to the shop to have my oil changed and rotate the tires and...  Read More

I replaced the factory Continentals the first day. I had a previous Tahoe with the factory equipment and didn't care for the noise and the just-average performance. I chose the Michelin Defender based on the good performance given on my aging Merc E320. Even though an SUV tire is quite different from a passenger car tire, the same qualities remained:...  Read More

Had the Goodyear Wrangler tires from the Ram Factory. Immediately noticed a significant smoother ride with the Michelin Defenders. Also, I'm more confident on wet surfaces. I am expecting at least 70K miles from these tires. That's what I use to get on the Michelin Defender predecessor M/S tires I ran on my suburban.   Read More

Still relatively new but noticeable differences in ride quality and steering responsiveness over the OEM summer tires. I used them for their first track day last week in combined wet/dry conditions and they were exceptional even in the standing water in some corners. I did manage to break them loose around a corner but that was more me than the tires.   Read More

Great tire and an improvement over the Pilot Super Sports. Same amazing tread life and dry performance, but improved wet characteristics. Previous tire was the Bridgestone RE-71's so the review reflects the performance delta between the two (probably unfair as the RE-71's last <10k). The PS 4s are the best balance between spirited daily driving, longevity,...  Read More

Have run these about 1,000-1,500 miles since mounting them about a month ago. Exceptional tires. They replaced the daily a/s tires (Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric) I had on my car's 19-inch Cadiz wheels for the previous 40k miles. I also have a set of Pilot Super Sports for track. Far and away these tires are better so far than both of the others. Versus the...  Read More

I have a front wheel drive Volkswagen CC R Line 6 Speed manual that is APR stage 2, so getting power down to the surface has been a struggle in second gear, but not with these tires. A little wheel hop in 1st gear, 2nd gear it hooks. Very smooth and quiet at 80mph. Always have confidence and trust in Michelin tires, and these are living up to their...  Read More

These tires are some of the best I've ever owned. They're super sticky thus making them trust worthy around fast cornering. The tread pattern is not the prettiest thing to look at. the sidewalls are not a sporty as you would like but the overall performance makes it easy to look past that. I can't comment on turning responsiveness because I only replaced the...  Read More

As for that Snowflake rating: Plenty of reviews talk about the the K02's as great tires but a lot of people are buying these expecting them to compete with Blizzaks as a winter tire, I will tell you that there is absolutely no comparison to a dedicated set of winter tires for most winter conditions. They are far superior to a mud tires in any winter...  Read More

Coming off a set of half worn Michelin Pilot Super Sports it was immediately apparent they've tuned the comfort level of the new PS4S. Not only does the 4S seem quieter on smooth pavement but also over small impacts and road imperfections. Even larger daily cringe worthy impacts are leaving me happily confused on the other side. My only complaint with the...  Read More

I have had mediocre to bad experiences with Michelin Tires in the past. I was a little uneasy about buying these tires. All that I can say is that I have been pleasantly surprised! These are super tires. The entire Michelin Organization should be very proud of this product. They do everything extremely well, except my front tires have a slight slip on road...  Read More

Tires have been great so far. They are very similar to the Pilot Super Sport; however, they seem quieter on the road. Excellent cornering stability - they really hold the pavement during spirited driving. Gas mileage has seemed better than my old PSS's, definitely better than the Alpin PA4's that were on over the winter.   Read More

I recently received my Mercedes-AMG C43 order and it arrived with Continental ContiSportContact SSR tires. I'd already purchased Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires (non-run-flat) for the car and the dealer generously agreed to buy the Continental tires back from me. However, they couldn't get the car in to switch the tires for a couple of days, so I drove the car...  Read More

I bought the Kumho Ecsta ASX as a winter tire replacement for the summer tires that came on my car. I am very impressed with the Kumhos. These are a great tire for the money! Handling is great, snow traction is decent, and ride noise is very low. I may keep them on my car all year long. I would recommend them.   Read More
