Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus
Initial Review: 4,000 miles on tires
June 20, 2012

With the amount of miles that I have on these tires I'm pleased & impressed with their overall performance. Keeping in mind these are AS All Season use rated tires, if I have to choose 1 Make/Model/Manufacture of tire for my 2007 Mustang GT/CS, I'm very pleased with these tires. They out handle, stop, & maintain a much higher stability than the 2 sets of BF Goodrich G Force factory style tires I wore out prior to installing the Michelin's. Keep in mind I demand a lot from my tires, so what I may consider below acceptable levels of performance may be acceptable for others. The main thing I learned very quickly was these tires should be properly warmed up, 10 minutes minimum of 75 degree temperatures before pushing them very hard thru tight turns to maintain optimum traction. Also depending on your driving habits you will notice keeping a close eye on your tire pressure & knowing what tire pressure works best for you & your car at different seasons will vary & affect handling, ride, & stability. I have found using 34 psi front & 36 psi rear for summer use so far to be the most acceptible for overall ride & comfort. The only thing I'm waiting to find out is how they wear compared to the factory BF Goodrich G Force tires. My car has approximately 56,000 miles on it & each set of factory tires did well to make it slightly above 25,000 miles per set. My Mustangs alighnment has been checked very frequently but has never been out of alighnment or needed adjustment in any way. All tires have worn evenly & tread edge feathering has never been a problem. But keep in mind over inflating or under inflating your tires came make them wear abnormally, along with proper balance & rotation. I hope to report back in another 5000 to 7000 miles to let buyers know how well these tires wear.
