These tires are awesome!! The day I had them put on, I had to drive home in a blizzard with icy/wet road in the right lane and about 1 inch of snow and slush in the left lane. It felt like driving on a dry road in the right and when i pulled out to pass, the car barely moved as I transitioned to the left lane. I tried braking hard (from 80km/hr to a stop) on a deserted icy road and my anti-lock didn't even kick in. I haven't tried these on dry pavement yet, no chance at this time of year... and I gave it a 4 for tread-wear because I have only driven a little over 2000 km so far. I corner hard, accelerate fast and I am very happy with these tires.
This is the 3rd time i'm having Michelin tires and 3 times i had the worst experience you can get. Tires even 6 months old starting to dry up and crack, eventually they pop. My first set of Michelin started falling apart as i was driving, big chunks of rubber were coming off. Second set, tires started to crack and eventually ripped on the sidewall making it huge gash.
My third set came with the car, tires are pretty much brand new 8/32 on it, on the way to California from Pennsylvania one of the tires ripped on the sidewall, very unreliable tires. Now i'm looking for the new set of 4 tires and Michelin is not on the list. Matter affect its on my blacklist.
