After burning thru the Pirellis PZeros that originally came with the care in 10k miles and checking out the price and availability of those same tires I decided to try an alternate brand and ran with BFG G Force TA's which I was able to get 15K out of. I was afraid that I was going to be stuck with budgeting $2000 a year for tires, until a friend recommend I try the Michelin Pilots. Yes they too were expensive but I have been able to put over 28K miles on these tires and I am very pleased with the performance. Are they Racing Tires? No, but they do perform very well for everyday driving and cruising. I believe that we could have gotten another 8k miles out of the tires except that we took a long road trip thru AZ and NV and the continuous hot pavement driving really ate up the tread. The Michelin Pilot SuperSports were by far a better value than my other options to date.
