Comment:
I commute 100 miles round trip with approx 70% highway, the rest city. This tire has performed extremely well. I have no problems in wet or slushy conditions and am pleased with the breaking performance. I find the ride very comfortable and quiet. Right now I have 54,000 miles on the tires with just over 2/32 left and will be replacing them next week. I have noticed an increase in vibration at speeds over the last 10-15,000 miles with a more notable increase last 5,000 miles. It is very mild and I really can't complain considering the tire is rated for 45,000 miles. Overall I am very satisfied and will be getting the same tire.

Comment:
The tires lasted what was supposed under the warranty, but with still enough safe thread, were rejected a the VA safety inspection for Dry Rot. All 4 tires with equal signs of dry rot. This is unacceptable for a Michelin tire. No wonder it has been discontinued.<br />If you drive less than 10000 miles per year, stay away from this specific tire.

Comment:
These tires gave an excellent blend of grip, ride comfort, and fuel efficiency. I kept them inflated at the optional 36 psi, per my Volvo S60's tire inflation placard. The extra few psi give an extra few mpg. Even at the higher inflation pressure, I found the go-in-the-snow to be grin inducing. Wet handling was also very good. I was extremely happy with these tires until about 35,000 miles when they started behaving strangely. They began to intermittently vibrate at highway speeds. As the miles racked up, the vibrations became more severe and more frequent. I replaced the tires at about 45,000 miles when the tread depth got to 3/32, but they didn't last their full tread life. I suspect the belts had failed and become loose, causing the intermittent vibrations.
