Reasonably priced high performance tires

Summary: Please note that my title says reasonably priced, not inexpensive performance tires. These have offered the best balance of performance and ride comfort in this class of tire. I have been sold on these tires since reading the online test reviews and trying out a set about 2 years ago. These are a HUGE improvement over the stock Pirelli P Zero Rosso tires that came on the car. The improvement in dry traction is very noticeable and slides are more controllable.
Summary: excellent dry and wet grip, good tread wear rating, and runs pretty wide. Nice and quiet, too. I am using these on a corvette (front size, rear is 305/30/20), and they put the power down very nicely, much better than the oem runflats.
Summary: Great tires! Installed 2 on the rear of my bmw 335i. Traction and performance is perfect under most weather conditions. No snow in my area so i can't comment on that. Very satisfied overall. Will purchase 2 more in the future.
Summary: These tires eliminated slip in first gear! With my old tires, the car would reduce the power because of wheel spin. Now the car flies! They look luxurious, and are extremely comfortable compared to other brands! wow!
Summary: I purchased a set of four about 45,000 miles ago, and have had only two flats during that time. The treads are ok, but I have a crack all the way around the outer edge. Is this very unusual? It did not happen with my original equipment tires used 7.5 years. I have used this set about 7.5 years, also.
Summary: Had originally installed Continental Constant Contact tires but felt they were too mushy and weren't very performance oriented. I had America's Tire swap them out and the change was night and day between these Super Sports. I realize they aren't the same class of tire and can't fault the Continental for that but do yourself a favor and drop the 50,000 mile warranties and let this tire make your car perform to its potential.
Summary: I have used other tires on two or three occasions with regret in the past 25 years. Michelin tires are the best. There is no substitute. I am very particular with my cars and tires. Any car with Michelin tires is a better car. Especially the summer tires. They grip on any surface: dry, wet, snow, even ice. Yes, even ice. They are quiet, comfort and handling are amazing. PS I never write reviews. I made an exception to help anyone with less tire buying experience.
Summary: These grip like it's nobody's business. These are pretty much the best performance tires you can buy that still have a mileage warranty. Highly recommend. They are okay on hydroplaning, not great. Don't drive with these on snow/ice conditions. These are best used on cars that don't see inclement weather.
