They’re round, made of rubber and are one of the most important and overlooked parts of your automobile. I’m speaking of course about your cars tires and I must say there’s a helluva’ lot more to them than meets the eye. Since tires are a consumable item people tend to spend more time choosing what they’re going to wear in the morning, than on a piece of equipment that could end up saving their lives. Thankfully though, you have us. The motoring press, the journalists and the die-hard car enthusiasts who try and do our best to educate you on what’s good, bad and downright junk.
This past week I had the opportunity to head down to New Orleans and test out Michelin’s newest all-season tire, the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3. However before I share my thoughts with you I want everyone to be aware of something. First off, I’m not getting paid to write this review. Second, I go through A LOT of tires, both high-performance and all-season. And third, I was extremely curious to see if this was going to be some kind of bullshit media event or an all out real life test in real world conditions.
