Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (W- or Y-Speed Rated)
Initial Review: 6,000 miles on tires
April 21, 2014

Have put about 6,000 miles on these tires since late summer in the Pacific Northwest, so lots of rain. These are the absolute best tires I've ever had in the rain. Almost can't tell the difference between wet and dry. This was the reason I bought them, and they pretty much met all my expectations. However, I was hoping they'd be a little better in the snow due to their excellent wet traction. They were about what you'd expect out of 3-season tires, so nothing to write home about.
They also perform extremely well in relatively low temperatures... A number of mornings/nights it was in the 30's and they perform almost as well as in the 40's and 50's. They break away fairly progressively as well, and seem to be wearing very well. These tires also give a surprisingly smooth ride, but I can't comment on noise as my car is too loud to hear anything anyways.
I'd definitely recommend these if you are looking for an excellent 3-season tire for use in varied conditions.
