Only 1000 miles but so far better than the rest

BigCLS500 - June 10, 2019

I have had this tire on my CLS 550 for about 1000 miles. I am not a heavy footed driver but I am a high milage driver. Car came with another brand and developed a wobble after 10K miles, those were a HP Summer tire, dumb enough I bought a second set of the same and had the same problem after 10K miles. Went with the Mich SS and those were great but living in Florida the rain here made them meh at best. These pups are amazing, the ride quality is top notch (can't say silent but smooth and handles well). My concern was rain, if you live in Florida than you know Jun 1st is the start of monsoon season and the rain down here is unlike anything I have experienced living up north. No problem hauling on the thruway at 70-80 MPH but in the rain I don't have that hydroplane feeling i did with all of the other tires, it's as if these soak up the water and stay planted to the road. With offset wheels I dont expect to get much out of them, maybe 1 year 15 K miles but so far I can NOT complain at all. Much of an upgrade to all the previous tires I had.

    Hands down the worst tires I've ever owned vehicle

    LG80439 - April 23, 2019

    Rears on a staggered set lasted a little over 12,000 miles. Normal everday driving, no burnouts, racing, or anything crazy. Now a front has developed a bubble in the sidewall. If I replaced it with another then I would've bought five of these over the course of about 15,000 miles. Not gonna happen. I'll be buying an entire set of non-Michelins tomorrow.

      Better than I expexted

      Hotwheels 65 - September 1, 2018

      I had the A/S 3 tires installed on my wife's 2014 C7 Z51 Corvette when it was delivered in December of 2014. Living in Buffalo, NY I wanted to be able to use the car in late fall and early spring [cold weather, light snow]. We have made two trips to Florida and the tires have performed much better than I expected. They provide a soft, quiet ride. Traction and cornering is very good. Wear is much better than I expected to get on a Corvette. We currently have over 31,000 miles on them and still have over 4/32nd tread depth remaining. I will be replacing these with the new Pilot Sport A/S 3+ before our next trip to Florida.

        LEGAL MENTIONS

        * IMPORTANT: While all-season tires are designed to provide reliable performance in moderate winter conditions, the use of four winter tires is recommended for optimal performance and may be mandatory in certain jurisdictions.

        ** Based on internal dry autocross testing versus the Continental® ExtremeContact™ DW and Pirelli® Pzero™ Nero tire size 225/45ZR17.

        *** Based on internal braking tests from 80 km/h versus the Goodyear® Eagle® F1 Asymmetric A/S, Bridgestone® RE970AS Pole Position, Pirelli® PZero™ Nero A/S, Continental® ExtremeContact™ DWS, Dunlop® SP Sport Signature and Yokohama® ADVAN S.4 tire size 225/45ZR17.

        OE [Vehicle Manufacturer] Sidewall Marking: N0=Porsche
        OE Code [Original Equipment Key]: P=Porsche

        Figures on chart represent estimated calculations.

        >> The sizes shown are average design values for tires measured on specified measuring rim widths. Some tires may vary from this value by +/-3% of the section height (affecting overall diameter), and +/-4% of the section width.
        >> Section width varies approximately 0.2" (5mm) for every 0.5" change in rim width.
        >> Tread patterns are often tuned to accommodate different tire widths. Tires for a particular dimension of a given tire line may vary in appearance from the tire shown in the photograph.

        WARNING: Serious or fatal injury may result from tire failure due to under inflation or overloading. To ensure correct air pressure and vehicle load, refer to vehicle owner's manual or tire information placard on the vehicle. Serious injury or death may result from explosion of tire/rim assembly due to improper mounting. Only tire professionals should mount tires and they should never inflate beyond 40 psi to seat the beads. Before mixing types of tires in any configuration on any vehicle, be sure to check the vehicle owner's manual for its recommendations.

        DANGER: Never mount a 15" diameter tire on a 15.5" rim. Never mount a 16" diameter tire on a 16.5" rim. Never mount a 17" diameter tire on a 17.5" rim. Never mount a 19" diameter on a 19.5" rim. Never mount a 22" diameter tire on a 22.5" rim. Never mount a 24" diameter tire on a 24.5" rim.

        Inflation pressure increase must not exceed the maximum pressure branded on the tire sidewall. When a customer requests a replacement tire with a lower speed rating than the original equipment tire, you must clearly communicate to him or her that the handling of the vehicle may be different, and that its maximum speed capability is limited to that of the lowest speed-rated tire on the vehicle. Exceeding the lawful speed limit is neither recommended nor endorsed.

        Michelin Inc. does not endorse the operation of any vehicle in an unsafe or unlawful manner. Exceeding the safe, legal speed limit is neither recommended nor endorsed.

        For high-speed driving, additional inflation pressure and possibly reduced tire loading and/or upsizing is required. In the absence of specific recommendations by the vehicle manufacturer, use the following guidelines based on those in the European Tyre and Rim Technical Organization Standards Manual. 

        For speeds over 160km/h (100 mph), load and inflation must be adjusted according to the table below.

        W-Speed Rated Sizes:
        Maximum Speed (km/h) 190 200 209 219 230 240 249 259 270
        Inflation Increase (psi) 0 1.5 3.0 4.5 6.0 7.5 7.5 7.5 7.5

        IMPORTANT: While all-season tires are designed to provide reliable performance in moderate winter conditions, the use of four (4) tires is recommended for optimal performance and may be mandatory in certain jurisdictions.
