Comment:
I was going to buy MXV4s, as replacements for my 2006 Lexus LS430, but the guy at the tire store recommended the Pilot A/S 3 Sport tires. He even told me that the tires were a few dollars cheaper than the MXV4s. <br /><br />I was a bit skeptical because I had done a lot of research and was ready to buy the MXV4s but he insisted that the A/S 3 were new but a better Michelin tire. He wasn't trying to steer me away from Michelin tires, just which ones. <br /><br />I am glad he insisted I buy these tires, because I love them! I live in Indiana and we had a lot of snow this past winter. Granted these tires are not good tires in the snow, but 200 lbs. of weight in the trunk solved that problem. I can hardly wait for summer!!!

Installed on Lexus IS350C. Firm, confident contact patch. Slightly louder than OEM Bridgestones but tolerable. Great in rain with no loss of traction. Ride is smooth. No change in fuel economy.

Dry just no words. Wet just awesome, feels like you cut every puddle,(you actually want to hit it). Snow, i live in Chicago, so i got an all season tire, this year we received a lot of snow, i made it thru, had to turn off traction control, at low rpm one tire would not get the vehicle out. it was a fun experience, was waiting just for snow. previously owned General, UHP, Hankook, this time tried Michelin, best tire ever.
