Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (W- or Y-Speed Rated)
Initial Review: 300 miles on tires

Unless you always drive in warm summer conditions this is the tire for you. Essentially comparable to the Michelin PS 2 but with cold weather bare road traction matching a winter tire down to freezing point (wet or dry). Have not tried them in snow or on ice yet but the previous A/S + I run as a summer tire on my SAAB are excellent in snow or on ice around freezing temperatures and this tire is rated more highly by Michelin themselves for cold weather performance. These are no longer no season tires. I now fit all season tires to all of our cars for our summer driving conditions and use full winters for our extreme winter conditions. I drive in mountainous western Canada and summertime daytime temperatures can often be as low as 5C (40F). Until the road gets above about 7C (45F) ultra high performance summer tires do not get warm enough to really perform. These new all season tires get warm enough to perform properly on roads that are at freezing temperatures. Truly amazing tires.
