I understand you liked the Michelin's in the past but they're All
Season tires (though they are Ultra High Perf) whereas the Yoko's are
true summer tires with none of the trade-offs that come with an all
season tire of any ilk. Head to head, who knows how different they'd
be in real life. I'm the type who would try the newer tire because
I'm a tire junky. ;-)
