Well, the only complaint I could send your way is cost. The pilots don't come cheap. Other than that, they seem like fine tires.

cost is the only thing I could think of. I have had Michelin Pilots on my Volvo, and two Peugeots and loved them

Now-a-days I drive 5000 miles a year and mine are fine and it's been a hard 5000 miles.
My last set lasted 20000 miles and that was the most abuse I have ever put a tire through on the street. Very little road noise as my KDW's were loud and sold them after 2000 miles

Go to tirerack.com and look at the reviews on these tires from actual customers. They really helped me choose my Pirelli's.

I have the P-Zero NERO summer tires(NOT the M+S/all seasons) and I am VERY pleased. they stick better than my KDW'S I had in the dry and are comparable in the wet, much more progressive at their limit, have no road noise, and they have a LOT smoother ride. not to mention they are half the price as well. they've been on for about 5k miles now(most of which was in New Orleans) and are showing very little wear, but the little wear they show is exceptionaly even dispite my hard driving. very pleased overall. I give them an A+
