Tire Highlights


Variable thickness sipes provide additional biting edges in low–grip conditions to improve wet and snow traction, but lock together in dry conditions to provide crisp handling and longer treadwear.


Unique biting edges in the grooves grip snow for better acceleration and braking in snowy conditions.


Helio compound with sunflower oil helps to increase traction at low temperatures, while extreme silica technology provides exceptional wet grip.


Asymetric tread pattern and Variable Contact Patch 2.0 design result in strong dry performance combined with long tread life.

      Excessive Tread Wear

            Dry weather handling is outstanding and noise level is low.
            I have only driven the car in light snow and there appeared to be no compromise in handling or stopping.
            Ride comfort seems to have improved over the original Michelin OEM tires

            At 1600 miles during State inspection I was informed that both front and rear had 9/32 thread reaming. Tire wear was even across the tread and the car checked out mechanically.

            I filed a warranty claim with Michelin. I was informed a warranty claim would not be considered until 4/32 thread remains. My potential tire life is 6600 miles. My driving is mixed with the majority local

            My Favorite Tires

                  These are my favorite tires i have ever owned. I have owned a lot of tires through the years and used to manage a tire shop years ago. These perform better than my summer tires from a major competitor did. Especially in daily driving conditions or in the rain and hug the road in the conrners. Plus they are way more comfortable and come with a 45k mile warranty, something you wont get with a summer tire. I don't drive on these in the winter but what i do love is that they will still handle in a light snow if we get an early snow in the fall before i've had a chance to put my winter tires on. I can't recommend these tires enough. Although i must say that in order to get the true performance out of these tires you MUST get the W rated ones.

                        So I special ordered these tires from a non Michelin dealer. Got them installed and was eager to see the great hype over these tires. I have a 2015 IS250 F Sport and these tires did not perform as to what I expected. On cornering I could feel the tire shaking as it was trying to grip the road (clear sunny day). I got 4 days later as I was not satisfied. Customer service told me to got to a dealer and let them inspect the tires and DOT. He said the tires were in a great condition and told me to call cust. service back. I did that and Michelin told me to go back to the place where I ordered my tires and swap them out with whatever brand. So I ordered a Michelin competitor tire and was getting them installed. They lifted my car and the manager called Michelin to swap out the DOT and Michelin told them they were not authorizing that. It was a big mess!!! I called back and the service rep said he was sorry for the agent saying that. As of now these A/S 3 are making my car fishtail and when I try to accelerate you can feel the tire just spinning. I don't know if I just got a bad batch but this whole scenario is the worst experience ever!
