    Nice! Who wants to volunteer as a guinea pig? I like that they are suggesting better performance AND tread life...

    I saw this in my latest car magazine, and was more excited about it than any of the cars inside...
    Can't wait to try them out once my PSS are done. I don't think I've ever really been this excited to go through a set of tires!

    Yea but you can save 10 lbs per wheel and get better tires by moving to 20s :)

    I've had 20s now for about two years but I'll be getting a set of 21" Tesla arachnids in the spring and switching out to those in warm weather. Why? I've thrown practicality out the window and just like the look:). If the new Michelin's are available in the right sizes by then they'll go on the arachnids. Foolish me:)
