    I’m just over 15,000 miles and have about 5/32 tread. Thinking I may need to replace over the next 5,000-8,000 miles.

    Looking for opinions on replacement tires. I know Tire Rack but want personal thoughts from y’all.

    Thanks!

    I have been doing a lot of research on the subject and for me, I think I am going to get Michelin AS3+.

    Because I am in a Northern climate, I use a dedicated winter tire and the AS3+ seemed to be the right combination of quiet/wear/performance and efficiency.

    Whatever you do, don't buy Nokian zLine A/S. They are cheap but very, very loud and firm riding. Avoid!

    I just installed the new Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ three days ago. They seem quiet and a little better ride than my previous Pilot sport 3's I removed. I got about 25 K miles with even wear on the Pilot Sport3's. $70 summer rebate on the new A/S3+.

    I have 11K miles on these now. Had MXM4's originally. Very pleased.

    Hands down the best summer performance tires are the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S. The Michelin Super Sport and PS2 are also great, but older.
