Summary: ABSOLUTELY THE WORST TIRES I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED! I purchased a Ford Focus Titanium that included a "handling package". Imagine that, a performance package with special "summer only tires" on a Ford Focus with a 4 cylinder engine to operate in Pennsylvania! Why two reputable companies (Ford and Michelin) teamed up to put these tires on cars that experience adverse weather is beyond me.
Summary: I purchased a 2013 Focus in Sept. Unbeknownst to me, the Titanium model included a "handling package" which included high performance "summer only tires". I tried to get resolution with Michelin and the Dealership, because I did not get full disclosure about these tires. That's another story. My fear was, cold/snowy weather affecting my ability to drive. Well, on Feb 12th, I was stranded on the side of a major highway because my great summer only tires had 0 traction.
Summary: We wanted a quiet ride for Mercedes CLS. Ride was quiet and comfortable, but we only got 16K miles on the rear tires. Fronts still have plenty of tread. Had the wheels aligned when all four tires were installed. Rear tire pressure 32 lbs when warm. We are long time Michelin customer and we are VERY disappointed in this tire. Never again.
