    Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3

    I live in rainy Florida and don't track my car. It sounds like the new Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3's may be a good choice when I need new tires this year. Anyone have information on whether they will be available in the V2 sedan stock sizes? And will there also be a runflat version available?

    Why AS's? Any All Season won't be as good as a summer tire in any way. How cold do you expect it to get? If you don't expect it to get in the 30s for days on end, I'd stick with summer tires. They'll stick better, wear better and you have a bigger selection.

    Generally, I agree with you but I have to drive a lot in the rain, so a small trade-off in dry weather performance may not be a bad thing, not to mention the vastly better wear rating of the Michelins. Have a look at this Motor Trend review: http://wot.motortrend.com/michelin-p...#axzz2Gq43IkTa. I have Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Positions now and was interested in the comparison.

    If performance in standing water is worth some sacrifice in dry performance, get the Hankook evo. I was driving in heavy rains on a badly rutted VT-5 with about 4" of standing water doing 50-80mph blasts, laughing all the way...

    I'm going with the S-04 myself on the rears and can't wait until Spring to give them a try on a track.
