So after reading reviews between contenders on tirerack, pricing, and factoring local availability [in case of a blowout/sidewall impact] ended up going with the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+. I got them through Discount Tire for $184 each (same price as Tire Rack), $21 each install. Came to $897 after install, disposal of old ones, and tax.
They put them at 35 psi, about where I was running the Continentals.What cold pressure psi are you running your new Pilot Sport A/S 3+ ?
It will always be something to be mindful of, but they have to be over-inflated (or under-inflated) by quite a bit to result in tire pressure alone causing uneven wear.I also wonder still on over-inflation which could wear out tire centers. Maybe not so much with today’s technology.
Thank you for your Michelin purchase . In my 23+ years , with Michelin , we are always improving .So after reading reviews between contenders on tirerack, pricing, and factoring local availability [in case of a blowout/sidewall impact] ended up going with the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+.

I can only barely get wheel spin now on a hard launch, whereas I ALWAYS had to baby the stock Continentals to get going. Handling seems fine, maybe even a bit firmer. No discernible loss in ride quality though. I even did a high speed run this morning (after doing some mild break-in last night) and they seemed better at high speeds (no shutter), which makes sense as they're ZR rated.
No rain in the forecast so it will be a while until I get to see how they perform on wet or cold. Very pleased with the initial results. They come with a prorated 45,000 mile warranty, so I figure if I get 30,000-40,000 out of them I'll get my money's worth.
I try to avoid definitive statements like "best", but they very well might be the best at the sub $200 price point. In fairness, I didn't try the other couple comparable tires so I can't be sure.The price of these Pilot Sport A/S 3+ is VERY good in my opinion,.. considering what you'd have to spend to get something comparable.
Once every handful of years one of the tire manufacturers make a product that leaves the competition scratching their head. And I think these Michelins are one of those products.
They look great . Michelin has won more J.D Power awards , than all other tire companies combined . Air less tires , coming soon . Already on some lawn tractors and bobcats .Nice choice https://www.amazon.com/Michelin-Pilot-Sport-All-Season-Radial/dp/B01ETRBGNY/ref=sr_1_1?hvadid=78408985739383&hvbmt=be&hvdev=t&hvqmt=e&keywords=pilot+sport+tire&qid=1561760951&s=automotive&sr=1-1 Can’t say on price but mounting and balance not too cheap these days. Those are only 17” too but good photo and description.
