Absolutely love these tires. I have run them on cars, trucks and suv's and I'm quite surprised to see them so low on this list. They are a winter tire so of course tread wear and noise is gonna be a slight issue but it's easy to overlook in a snowstorm when you're the one not pushing your car!
WARNING!!! Don't buy the Michelin Defender. Had Michelins since 1971 and this is the first horrible Michelin tire. Wear out in 30,000 miles with very easy driving. Totally unsafe in snow and ice. Skid and get stuck everywhere. Repeat DO NOT BUY the Michelin Defender!!!
Brought these tires back in July. Was a little skeptical at first because I'm a Michelin man and I've never brought Bridgestone before. I replaced a set of Michelin primacy with these and I don't regret it. These tires are absolutely wonderful! They are very quiet cruising around town and out on the highway. The handling is amazing. They corner very well giving you added confidence in curves. Wet traction is very impressive as I have yet to feel any slippage in heavy rain or slick roads. Can't rate tread wear as of yet cause it's too early to tell or snow handling cause I haven't driven it any yet. Overall so far a great tire!!!! I've always been a Michelin man and probably always will be but I would recommend and buy these tires again. The michelins may be a tad bit quieter than these but not by much! But the overall performance, handling, comfort and response on these wins out!....FYI I run 35psi in the front and 32 in the rear. That gave me the best ride feel.
