beelsamin,

If you are looking for a high-mileage tire, it's an excellent choice. However, if you are planning to use them all-year long, I would not choose them. That tread is not the best for snow. If you have seen a set up-close, you will know what I mean. Michelin's website claims that it is decent in snow, but I don't believe it, not with that tread.

I own a set of Michelin Arctic Alpin snowtires for winter.

Scott

I have Michelins sold thru Sears - Achievas? Had a 70 or 80,000 mile warranty, were all-season. Were fine this winter in snow. I have yet to be disappointed by Michelins.
