Comment:
I drive a 2013 VW Passat TDI which has an excellent fuel mileage but with these tires it gets even better because of low rolling resistance. Even if you don't care about fuel efficiency you should buy these tires for excellent performance they offer. I can't really find any cons because I'm really happy with them in every aspect.<br />By the way, I buy Michelin tires exclusively for all of my vehicles for the past 20 years. They are just the best.

OEM tires on our 2012 Pilot. This car is used for everything by multiple family drivers, including long trips towing a car hauler trailer near the towing limit. Two of the tires are at the wear bars and two have a bit more than that at 45000 miles. We have rotated them every 7000 miles or so at the on-condition oil changes (work done by Honda dealer).<br /> <br />The tires grip well in rain and light snow. Last winter, 4 of snow was no big deal- no slipping and sliding except when induced on purpose. They've always been quiet and smooth riding.

Comment:
I've gone through 2 sets of these tires on an Acura RSX. The first set were factory installed, I got 57,500 miles out of them. I liked them and purchased the second set at Costco, I've got over 80,000 miles on them and they still have 3/32 of tread left, which I don't feel is sufficient to get through another winter in Pittsburgh. Tires are quiet, traction during winter driving is excellent. I would describe my driving as spirited at times, my RSX base is not fast, but is a fun car to drive. I highly recommend these tires.
