Thanks for the comments. I was not comparing the two tires as you correctly stated they are in different leagues. I was expressing an opinion based on personal use on a variety of cars over the last 25 years. My feelings are never to purchase any Michelin tire at any performance level. I have found them to be lacking in most every aspect except wear when compared to all the Dunlop,Bridgestone,Pirelli and Sumitomo tires I have experienced on TR 3s, Austin Healeys, old Beetles, SAABs, Alfa Romeos, every water cooled VW, A4QM sedan and A4QM Avant. As you correctly pointed out, feel is subjective, and I feel Michelins and the Goodyears the A4 sedan came with are the worst rubber I have had personal experience with, again only my opinion. Due to the variety of cars I currently own and the variety of use they receive I tend to look for ultra high performance all season tires. Definately a different breed from summer rubber. You can have my 225 45 17 Pilots for next to nothing, fortunately
 I am at a station in life where I dont have to wait for them to wear out.
