Rated 5 out of 5 by Qunadry Replaced Run-Flats
Replaced the run-flats on my BMW 135i with the A/S 3's two days ago. The car has been transformed. The tire is quiet, and has improved the ride quality and handling of the car. Assorted rattles and squeaks which drove me crazy from the first day with the car are now gone. Even my wife noticed the difference. I can not say enough good things about these tires.

These are great performance tires. Quiet ride and excellent wet and dry weather performance. Exellent price on the tires and coupled with the $70 rebate from Michelin provided a good value. Not cheap tires but worth it if you have a performance vehicle.

Purchased set for daughter's Jetta Sportwagen 2.5 last month & was impressed. Just put a set on my Jetta TDI Sportwagen and am very impressed. Ride is much smoother than with OE tires, and it is quieter. Car now also corners much better--much better. Braking is superb! Will follow up after several thousand miles.

Replaced P-Zero P255/40ZR19s on a 2012 supercharged 3.0 Audi A6 with sports package. Much quieter and softer riding tire. Noise at 70mph measured 79dB with the P-Zero vs. 70dB with the Pilot Sport A/S 3. Wet traction is VERY impressive. Concerns over changing from a summer performance tire to M+S tire, were pleasantly surprising; this tire turns in very crisply with linear response. In all a great tire.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer I would buy these tires again.
I have only had the tires for a couple of weeks, but I find them to be very quiet and they perform well - go where I point them and are grippy. I look forward to seeing how they wear. They were highly recommended by a consumer organization.

The millage is better, the road noise is less. I drive the car in the city 90% of the time and where I Live rain a lot. Excellent in the rain.

I had a set of these tires installed on my Mini 6 months ago. They have performed really great on dry pavement as well as on snow this past winter. I am very pleased and would purchase another set in the future.

I drive a 2006 Mercedes E350 sedan. I had the old Michelin Pilot Sport A/S tires on her and, I purchased the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3's, three weeks ago, and have put close to 2,000 miles on them. I got them at the right time because it started to rain here in Northern California, for several days and was able to drive through various wet weather road conditions, from pouring rain, to standing water on the freeway. These tires handled beautifully at speeds of 75 mph on the freeway (I like to drive fast). The contact on the wet road was superb, I had complete control. When the weather dried the stickiness of the tires are outstanding as you go around curves and the braking astounding. I must also add that these are extremely quieter compared to the Pilot Sport A/S, I am happy for that a noise reduction of at least 90% compared to the old tires, very noticeable. I would recommend these for any Mercedes owner.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Poor winter tire, great dry and wet tire
These tires are very dangerous in winter. They are not an all season tire. With that being said, in dry and wet conditions they are very good. I would recommend going with a better all season tire like DWS or snow tires.

Have put 2000 miles on them, they are great tires. Quiet and smooth riding. They hold well in the rain- as you know Mini's are quick turning cars and these tires hold the road. My dad recommended them after finding that Michelin made a lower cost tire that fits my car. I hope to get more than 29k miles which is what I got on the original supplied tires.

Just purchased my first set of tires for my 2013 Infiniti G37S (6MT) SEDAN. These tires handles great in wet pavement. Did really good during houston's two day winter ice storm that shut down the city( LOL ). Alot quieter compare to my O.E. tires ( RE050 ). It grips like a summer performance tire when going around sharp curveys at high speed. I drive 102 miles a day for work and i haul my mountain bike to near by trails 4 hr away on weekends. I drive aggressively and iam hard on the braking. Worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SeniorCitizen Awesome A/S Tires
I purchased these tires as replacement for the OEM Michelin Pilots on my 2012 Civic Si Coupe. The OEM's only had 12,000 miles but the lack of performance, especially in rain or snow, had me looking elsewhere. I had an '07 Si coupe with Conti DWS, which outperformed the OEM's on my '12, and did consider them, but am glad I opted for the AS/3's. The performance in snow over the past week has been exceptional, much better than the DWS and far superior to the OEM's. I had no trouble driving through 8.5" of wet snow on Monday, 4" of powder last week, and plowed through about 10" of snow / slush / ice encountered in various areas during my drive this morning. Dry performance is great, although not as good as the Pilot Exalto's which were OEM on my '07. Wet performance is very good, the tires are minimally phased by standing water. Note that my Si's both have limited slip differentials, which certainly contributes to performance during inclement weather. I now have approximately 3,500 miles on the AS/3's, and could not be more pleased with my purchase.

Michelin has always been in the family and seeing how they came up with the Pilot Sport A/S 3's just made it better to stay with Michelin tires. I switched my RFT and I'm going on a couple of thousand miles now. So far the ride is 100 times better! I have a luxury car and I went from feeling like I was off roading to having a nice smooth ride. Curse those RFT! Luckily, my old RFT came with the car and I didn't spend twice I would of if I did get the RFT again. We do a lot of driving since family is far and coming home the ride is so smooth that when my family is asleep they don't even notice all the bumps and road noise. The new A/S 3s are a better ride, the handling is great, the road noise is not an issue anymore and I do save more gas than I did before. The look of the tires are great and the feel is what I was looking for. Overall, I would put the A/S 3s again once I'm up for new tires again unless they come up with A/S 4s which would be great. Thanks Michelin team! Keep up the good work! I love the new tires!

I have these tires on my Audi A8L and they performed very, very, well last night. 8 hours to get home no slippage. I passed a brand new 750i going up a steep incline and I never slipped.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Quality product for a reasonable price
I bought these tires for my daily driver (2008 Subaru WRX). They work great for my needs. The Pilot A/S 3's are a great mix; they handle like a sport tire, but are higly durable. I've used these tires in rain/snow and they provide great traction. I have not had any problems thus far and really like the tire. I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a great all season tire.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy Pilot Sport A/S 3 rated #1 in testing
The Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3's are the best handling all season sport tires on the market. Autoweek magazine issues September 2nd, 2013 and issue September 16th, 2013 go into more detail on testing against other top performance summer tires and all-season tires. Autoweek advisors tested the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3's on a dry autocross course beating out top performance summer tires with more dry grip. The Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3's also tested quicker than competitive tires and the best for wet and dry braking distances.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jrreep Outstanding Grip
These tires have fantastic dry grip; easily the most grippy all seasons I've had on a road car. In the wet they are more than sufficient for a daily driver. On snow these are perhaps the best non dedicated winter tire I've driven. And on ice these tires maintain enough grip to commute with confidence. Fuel economy took a slight hit on the highway compared to my previous tires. Ride noise is slightly higher now too, but well worth the trade in grip. Bottom line, I would stongly recommend these for any driving enthusiast looking for all seasons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GT500 Excellent Tires
I've been using different brand of Tires on my 2011 Shelby GT500 and those were my third set. Those Tires were making annoying humming noise, and the ride was really rough even Ford mechanic thought there was a bearing issue with the car, but once I consulted another mechanic, he said the Tires were the issue. So I decided to go for Michelin's A/S Tires (19" for front - 20"s for the back) and I immediately noticed that the noise was completely gone and the ride is definitely improved. What I like also about those Michelin Tires is the 45,000 miles warranty comparing to the other brand of 20,000 miles warranty. Really, they are amazing Tires and I recommend them to anyone driving a Muscle car. GREAT Tires... Thank you

Rated 4 out of 5 by brian A Great 3.5-Season Tire
Replaced OEM summer tires on my BMW. I was looking for something with a longer tread life and better grip that the OEM run flats. I haven't had these for more than 500 miles so far, but already they out-perform the OEM summer tires even in the dry and stay very grippy in the wet and sub-freezing temperatures I've seen in Cleveland this December. They were only so-so in light snow though and I ended up going back to my usual winter setup for the next few months. I would not recommend the A/S 3 for use in snow, at least on a RWD car, but it is capable in a pinch if you're in an area that doesn't frequently see snow. Just expect to accelerate very slowly and breaking distances were much longer than dedicated winter tires. I'm looking forward to the longer tread life as both sets of my summer tires averaged 12,000 miles before they were worn out.

I purchased these tires to replace the stock tires on my Ford Mustang GT. I like the grip, and how they hook up. Also, I originally wanted Michelin Super Sport tires, but they aren't made for the tire size of the Mustang GT. If I had a Porsche 911, Mercedes S-Class, or BMW 5-series I wouldn't have had a tire size problem. C'mon Michelin make me some Super Sports for the Mustang. Ford has sold millions of them, and that's alot of tires.

We were looking for new high performance all-season tires and these were just right. We had original run-flats on our BMW 135i. These Pilot A/S 3's grip and handle the road well. They cushion your ride (especially well if you are used to the run-flats). What a difference these tires make. Obviously buy a can of fix a flat just in case you own this car because you have no spare and no run-flats anymore. We love the tires and would definitely recommend them.

I currently have the most humble of vehicles, a 2000 Saturn LW1 Wagon. It has gone through some personality changes, Koni Sport Struts, Carbotech custom Autocross brakes and now 17" rims wrapped in Michelin AS3 215-45/17 glory. These tires are on par with my 18" Pilot Sports that I had on my 96' Mustang and now my humble wagon grips, stops, handles like a dream. Better than my Mustang and my Z. If these tires can transform my ride into something fun.... Worth every penny.

Bought these tires for my Mercedes CL55 AMG. Been on several 400 mile plus road trips. Couldn't ask for a better. The handling cornering are superb.... Being a sport tire they ride a little harder than your avg. radials... But my hydraulic suspension smoothes it out ... Over all one of the best set of tires I have ever bought... I recommend them for any high performance car....

After researching both summer and all season performance tires, I opted to go with the Pilot Sport A/S 3 because of the stellar reviews - from tire professionals and regular drivers. The tire has given great dry traction - even better than the summer dry it replaced!
