Always worth the money
As a Mastertech at a BMW dealership, I first started to form an opinion on tires when I noticed wear [differences] between brands. BMW was using Dunlop, Bridgestone, Pirelli, Goodyear, Continental, and Michelin. On the same model of vehicle, we noticed drastically different wear in the same mileage. Michelin and Continental were the only two brands that came close to wearing evenly and [lasting] their estimated mileage life.
Certain tires work better on certain vehicles because some manufactures run more aggressive alignment angles than others. The Michelin pilot super sports are among some of the best performance tires I’ve ever seen. Not only will they wear evenly for their estimated mileage life, but they do so across a wide variety of vehicles.
Needless to say, when a customer asks for a tire recommendation, I tell them, Michelin, if they can afford it. Their only downside is their expense, but they are always worth the money.
