Talked into these in early March by Kaufmans manager. I had FS firehawks that were sooo loud and had to get off this car. I love Michelins, I just hate to pay $800+ a set. Once I drove off, for only $600, I knew it was the right choice. Quiet, soft yet responsive. They've done a 700 mile interstate r/t and gone up and down the mountains of N Georiga in fine fashion. These also resolved some rough braking sounds I was having with my Subie. Hope they stay great to 90K. Will be the best tires ever at that point. I have 34-35 PSI in these cold.
