    Purchased 4 touring Michelin tires. Anyone else do this. Good speed rate and AAA tire. Hoping the last longer than ultra high performance. Buddy talked me into. I should get lots more miles since they aren't as soft. Love the handling.

    I get the performance Michelins and they perform well but you are correct they wear incredibly fast. I don't know of any soft compound performance tire that will leave a value oriented owner satisfied. It just seems like alot of money for the amount of wet and dry miles you can safely use them.

    The Michelins on my truck perform great and wear is pretty good.

    I will let you know how it goes. They have a high speed rate. Actually the dealer talked me into trying them. I am heavy footed but don't " race".
    Thanks for your input.

    Costco? These are a grand at belle, discount, dealership. Not cheap tires! Ride is great and seems to handle well at 95. I think they are called mxm4? Not sure though

    I like these tires. Ran up to 100 today and it was a great feel. Glad I got this type.

    I liked the Pilot Sport Pluses that I ran on my Lincoln, and the Defenders on my truck have been pretty good. I got fairly reasonable life out of both; I don't recall how many miles I got out of the set on my Lincoln, but I got about 60K out of one of the factory Michelins on my truck--road hazards (here's a big FU to people who can't be bothered to secure the loads they're taking to the dump, especially roofing contractors with their sidewall-seeking nails) and a gal who couldn't tell where the parking lot ended and the right lane began got the other three.

    FWIW, the Michelins replaced Bridgestone Potenzas on my Lincoln, and I'd rate them both excellent (they used to alternate between #1 and #2 rankings in their category at the Tire Rack). I replaced the Michelins with Continentals (the exact model escapes me and I'm too lazy to walk over to the garage), which were also very good. I went back with the factory Michelins on my truck, which is unusual for me--I rarely buy the same brand of tire twice in a row unless I'm replacing a damaged tire.

    Yeah, they're cool, I got them several months ago and I'm satisfied with their quality too!
