I recently had a chance to see Michelin's new Premier A/S and I was pretty impressed with what they've done. In order to maximize wet traction, wet handling and wet braking Michelin has designed the tread of the new Michelin Premier A/S to change/evolve as it wears. As the tire wears, its circumferential groves get wider and the sipes on both shoulders turn into new groves. By doing this the Michelin Premier A/S maintains about a 70% tread to 30% tread void throughout its life.

If you are a tire nut like I am, you'll agree... That's pretty darn cool!


In thinking more about this tire I was reminded of an experience I won't soon forget so I wrote about it here: Michelin Premier A/S - A smarter tire for the ones you love.


Are any of you planning to run the new Michelin Premier A/S (Sizes, Prices & Availability) on your Acura?

These have been out for a little while now. Does anyone here have them on their Acura? If so, what are you thoughts? How many miles do you have on them and how are they working out for you?
