I have em on my car for the last 3 years. Very good thread wear, very quiet, has a good grip in dry/wet. I can spin them WOT in 2nd in a 160 HP car, so if you want some performance, need to go to pilot sport or as3

Premiers? They are only 1.5 years old.

The Michelins, which i have owned previously, are a wonderful tire. However the price point and wear pointed to other tires. I would highly recommend the Continental True Contacts (rated #1 touring tire at tire rack.com). They are great in wet, dry and snow conditions. Have a six (6) year warranty wt 1450000km

Ive driven on Michelin Premiers, pirellis (various sorts), and Yokohamas, to name a few. Ive been on many tires thes continentals are on par. Incredible tires for the price.

They softened up my ride from the pirelli run flats ($275 a tire) i was running prior. I was suspect. But thus far i am impressed at 5000 km of road life put on ( daily city driving).

I have not used them in the winter :/ I ran them in 2015 till end of december and it was alright when there was some slush. But I'd still use winter tires
