Very good wet / dry handling but a harsh ride on average rods

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gabe Long lasting and sporty 60,700 miles
Car 2013 Lexus GS350 RWD
Bought the Pilot A/S 3's when the car had 41,300 miles, Just replaced them at 102,031 Miles. WOW...!
I drive 55-60K miles/yr mostly on the interstate in the South and I'm not a hard driver, but from time to time I like to drop the hammer on the GS when I get on a windy country road or up in the Smokey Mountains. I've also do a little Autocrossing and the car is a hoot to drive hard. My gas mileage is right at 29 MPG with about 85% highway miles and I average 74 MPH on the interstate. I do hear a bit of road noise, but it's OK for a sports sedan, even a Lexus. I balance them regularly and align them if needed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Mike Mercedes S500 2002, Sport
I bought the Michelin Pilot A/S Sport 3 in March of 2015 for the rear of the S500 Sport Pkg with 212843 miles. The ride at first was very smooth and comfortable (that's the reason I have stayed with Michelin) but @ 219183 miles the rears are bald, rough riding & cupping - tire centers will not balance the tires saying they are to far gone. I am in Southern Ca. I am extremely disappointed with Michelin for this product, Michelin has been my tire of choice for decades but this speaks to quality- I hope to hear from Michelin - again excellent initial tire for this car but the mileage is horrible. I hope Michelin can correct this issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BILL MICHELIN, THE BEST TIRE EVER
I BOUGHT MY FIRST MICHELIN TIRE FOR MY CADILLAC IN 1985 AND HAVE BEEN BUYING THEM SINCE THEN FOR ALL MY VEHICLES. EVEN WHEN I PURCHASE A NEW CAR, I CAN'T WAIT TO WEAR THE ORIGINAL TIRES OUT SO I CAN REPLACE THEM WITH MICHELINS. THE MICHELINS ARE SO MUCH SMOOTHER, QUITER, AND BETTER TRACTION IN WET WEATHER. KEEP DOING WHAT YOU DO TO MAKE A GREAT TIRE EVEN GREATER.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Haresh D. Worst Michelin Tires in 32 Years!!
Since 1983, I've exclusively purchased Michelin tires which, until now, never disappointed me. Although the Pilot Sport A/S 3 tires handle well, they've significantly reduced my Honda Civic's gas mileage by 10-12%. The drop in mileage began immediately after these tires were installed. I keep my vehicle in top mechanical shape and ensure that all maintenance schedules are followed, so there is no doubt that the drop in mileage is due to these new tires.
My original tire choice was the Primacy MXM4 205/55R16 tires. Unfortunately, Michelin had no inventory available for many months. Just my luck, because the Primacy MXM4's are now available!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mike Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 - Highly Recommend
When deciding on which tires to recently purchase in May 2015, I almost listened to chatter about these tires being noisy. So glad I did not listen and went with my decades of experience owning Michelins. I really do not understand the noise complaints? After six weeks of driving on these tires, I find them quite smooth and quiet. I feel most confident, safe and love the handling. I can only surmise something else was going on with the vehicles of those complaining about noise. I put these on a Roaster Convertible where my head/ear is close to the rear tire; absolutely no noise from tires with top up or down. Highly Recommend!

Rated 1 out of 5 by PJ Handled great....but poor milage
I purchased these tires to replace the ones I had on my Ford 2014 Escape. My scape came with 19 inch tires so I bought the pilot as3 hoping to get better mileage in a better ride .I got the better ride but the mileage was terrable. All four tires had to be replaced after 19000 miles as opposed 45000 mile warranty. Had them for less than a year and now it appears they are no longer available.
