Opinion on Michelin Tires

I'm looking at getting Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 for my 2010 Mustang GT. I need an all season tire, this being my DD. Here in Wisconsin will run a grand. Opinions on options appreciated

My opinion, you won't find a better tire at any price.

What about Costco filling them with Nitrogen, not using oxygen? Does anyone have a preferrance?

Opinion on Michelin Tires

I went with the Continental Extreme Contact DWS with extra weight in the trunk. They have been fantastic in the snow. 2012 Mustang GT 5.0 Brembo 6 Spd. I paid $660 installed. 245 45 19s.

Michelins are my favorite tires, I always fill mine with 78% Nitrogen

Nitrogen is a much better gas to run in your tires if you can get it.

The A/S are a great tire, I sold a lot of them when I worked for a tire center. They have great grip on wet and dry roads and hold corners extremely well. If you don't have staggered wheels I recommend rotating them every 5k. If you do that and keep the tire pressure in check you should get 45k-55k out of them easy. They great thing about michelin is they don't BS you on tread warranty. My exalto A/S are rated for 45k and I have 55k on them now with 4/32 of tread left. My only concern would be snow traction. To get great dry traction they have a limited number of sipes, which you want a ton of for winter driving. Compare them to a studless snow tire to see what I mean. The Conti DWS's have more siping which would give you better snow/slush traction, however the michelins will out perform them in wet/dry conditions.
