Tire Pros

Great tire in dry conditions.

Tire Cons

Worthless in snow. I purchased a second set of wheels for winter driving, even with AWD.

Poor handling in winter is to be expected from these big, fat tires. If you live where the sun always shines, they might be the ticket for you. However, they don't last very long. I'm replacing them at about 25K miles. If price was no object, I'd buy another set, but...

Tire Pros

Good looking tire that handles well

Tire Cons

Tread wear disappears fast, trouble with splitting in sides.. see review

These tires came on my BMW X5 so I bought them as replacements. No problems with performance of the tires. My problem is with durability. These are very expensive tires $300 each. Tread wear is very poor for a tire of that price. My biggest complaint is that I've had two tires split at the side wall. This should NEVER happen... no warranty on that of course! I had one split last week. Though I'm a huge Michelin fan, I'm switching to Yokohama!
