        Good Performance - Very Low Tread Life

              Comments about Pilot Sport A/S Plus:

              Purchased tires a few years ago, but have gotten just over 32k miles out of these tires. At first these tires were great, quiet, sticky, good under breaking - especially for an all season tire. Approximately 1k miles ago tires began to become progressively louder, noticed a loss of grip with many bits of the rubber flaking off from the tires. Tires were rotated approx every 6-8k miles (either at the tire dealer or at dealership). One tire now has the belts showing and other 3 are about to expose themselves. I talked with an installer today and expressed my concern and upon learning of the brand/type of tire on my car (insert long pause here) "Oh - you have those tires..." I will not recommend these tires to anyone.

                    2001 Corvette, driven by 67 year old man, fitted with Michelin Pilot Sport A/S plus. Had to replace rear tires after 14,911 miles with a second set of Pilot Sports. Now have 10,000 miles on new set and tires are worn down to the tread bar, needing replacement. Front tires lasted slightly longer needing replacement after 22K miles. Very disappointed with these tires and do NOT recommend purchasing these tires.

                          I replaced my old tires with these new ones about 4 years ago. I don't drive the car often or to long trips. My commute is about 10 miles round trip. I probably got maybe 15000/20000 miles out of these. At first they were really nice. Very smooth and low noise, but then the noise was getting worst. My car has staggered wheels so they cant be rotated, thats why I never really bother to look at the tires unless when the tire pressure is low, and that doesnt happen often. I noticed the tires are not wearing the way they should when I parked my car up a hill with the wheels turned to the curb. When I got off the car to check my park job I see pieces of rubber missing/hanging from the tires! So I went home and checked my other car with different brand of tires that was purchased at around the same time and with 3 to 4 times more milage than mine. Other than worned thread, there wasn't any missing/hanging rubber. Long story short, I noticed these tires have 45000 miles warranty while shopping for a replacement. Came to site for info and notice alot of people are having the same problem. Michelin Please fix this problem! These need to be replaced for my safety and safety of others!
