Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus
Initial Review: 42,000 miles on tires
May 20, 2012

I purchased my TL Type S new and have 66,000 miles on it. The OEM were awful. Too stiff, slippery and just plain bad.I only got 22,000 miles out of them. I couldn't wait to replace them with better set of tires. I purchase the Michelins Pilot Sport A/S for their overall better performance abilities. They are far superior than the OEM. They have a softer ride which I love due to my car already stiff suspension. I felt everything on the road before and a long distance ride was uncomfortable. These Michelins are great in the rain/ dry and light snow with a better softer ride without losing any performance capabilities.I drive very fast and aggressive, really punishing the tires and got 42,000 miles before the tires needed to be changed. I recently tried out the Bridgestone Potenzas for the Michelin replacements. They lasted 6 days before I switched back to a new set of Pilot A/S. The Potenza's were too hard, sending any bump or road roughness through my lower back. They are good, but not comfortable for my car's already tight suspension. I love the Micheline's ride , incredible handling, durability and how their aggressive look on my black TL. They look like something the Batmobile would have on it. They are more expensive than the Bridgestones, but their ride and their durability even out their cost. I was shocked they lasted almost 42,000 miles and already have 2,000 miles on the new set.
The Michelins are worth their price. I couldn't be any happier and I believe you won't either.
