Michelin Pilot Alpin PA3
Initial Review: 2,000 miles on tires

I bought this as a winter tire in the New York City metro area. The winter has been very mild with almost no snow. As a result, the tire is hard to evaluate as a winter tire. As a performance tire for a Porsche Panamera 4 it is outstanding. I have found overall performance to be very close to my Pirelli P Zero summer tires and superior to any all-season tire I have used in the past on other performance cars. If not for excessive wear, I would run these all year round. Handling, steering and road feel are all at a level far more similar to a max performance summer tire than a performance all-season or winter tire. Strongly recommended.
