Incredible tires. They are definitley worth the money, plus they are a somewhat hard compound so they will last at 30,000 miles.

I have the same tires in 225/45/17 and it's seems really great so far. But the real test will be how good it does on snow...

I'll tell you how it does in the future, if this thread still exists.

you scare me saying 30k miles... my re92 had 73k and dunlop sp5000's have almost 80k.

They do have a 400 treadwear rating and the dunlops were 340

Whoa! You got 73k out of your re92s! I think the treadwear on the ones which came on my WRX was under 200, and they lasted a whopping 18k miles... (they weren't down to the indicators, but they were close and handling, esp. in the wet, had degraded quite a bit)

I was torn between the Pilot Sport AS and the P-Zero Nero M+S - ended up going with the latter (quite a bit less expensive, and an excellent all around tire) - I might try the Michelins next time around...

well, the did wear out their welcome. In the rain they would do spontaneous lane changes at 40 MPH. just drving along.... then PSSSSSTT... and you were in the next lane. They were on the car for 73K, not sure I'd say they "Lasted" 73K.

The Michelins are excellent tires, but I feel they are past their prime. They are one of the oldest UHP All-Seasons on the block and while their longevity is a testament to their versatility, they simply can't justify their 50% price premium anymore when there is stuff like the Pirelli PZero M&S and Avon Tech M550 around. They may be a hair better in the snow than the Pirellis, but they are worse in the dry and for the price you could almost buy a set of dedicated snow tires with the pirellis to use on the REALLY bad days.

They made sense before the other tire companies started putting out good compromise tires, but now they are overpriced in the market (well, like most Michelin tires really.)

Also, for what it's worth, my RE92s were shot in 13k.
