My car has staggered tires so I cannot rotate them like I would like to for that optimal mileage. But so far with a little over 5,000 miles on them I am quite impressed with the overall tire performance. I have driven in the snow, ice and a lot of rain living in the Northwest. I was debating getting snow tires this year vs. the all season. I was driving on roads with packed snow and I didn't have any surprises with my rear wheel drive car. Again, these are not snow tires, but they behaved better than I thought they would. They are great in the rain - they keep my car straight and true. And when the roads dry up... they seem to have excellent grip and they help make driving fun. Way to go Michelin.
