Michelin Pilot Sport 3 PS3 Reviews

Given 86% (breakdown) while driving a Volkswagen Golf GTI Ed 30 (225-40-18-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 5,000 spirited miles
Almost unnatural wet grip and very good in the dry. They just hold and hold and fill you with plenty of confidence. Rolling resistance is quite high so fuel economy isn't great but that's not why you buy this car.

Being very soft, they don't last. I've done around 5000 miles on them and they're about halfway worn at the front; still looking pretty new on the back however.

Side walls were surprisingly soft which, considering the grip is good, isn't a bad thing for your back at all.

Al round a very good tyre for a sports car.

Given 70% (breakdown) while driving a CitroŽn DS5 2.0 Hdi (235-45-18-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 13,500 average miles
Wear is quite severe, have 13500 miles on the clock and 4mm left on front and 3mm on rear. All four tyres are wearing fairly evenly across width.

Disappointed that rear tyres wear the same as front. I am happy wheels are properly aligned and I would consider myself a careful driver travelling on a good mix of roads and conditions.

Definitely not purchase again. The wear was similar on my previous DS4 !

Great Tyre. The only negative is wear. 22k miles from brand new to 2mm.

Given 54% (breakdown) while driving a Ford Focus mk2 (205-55-16-V)
Driving on mostly town for 12,000 easy going miles
I placed the score after 3 years on my car and 19300km with them.
On the 1st year great tyre. From the 2nd year they started to slip and on the 3nd year they are awful and slip when i start and stop the car with slip road. Put on primacy 3 to test if they are greater. If not i think it would be the last chance for Michelin.
Not recommend them for being on car after the 2nd year.

The PS3 were carefully selected replacing a long standing trust with Uniroyal Rainsport 2's, After numerous sets of the Uniroyal RS2, in the Rain and braking in the wet is where they shined but I was left wanting more as a driver, but a great safe tyre with plenty of feel. The Michelin's are better on number of points .. the PS3's have a greater sidewall stiffness and the compound is much better wearing. This means better stability at speed and the precision of the steering inputs better, allowing you to balance the car faster into corners or going in flatter and back on the accelerator. I had the PS3 at the front Axled (FWD Car) and left the Uniroyal at the rear. This has served me fine but will write my next review with a new full set of Uniroyal Rainsport 3's ! ... This tyre is probably the best I have overall so far from a drivers perspective.
