Given 60% while driving a Toyota GT86 (225/45 R17) on mostly country roads for 0 spirited miles
These tyres last ages, but that's because they are low grip. They came standard on my GT86 entirely BECAUSE they are low grip and you can drift the car at low speed.

As a performance tyre they are rubbish, as a fun and go sideways tyre, great. A bit scary in the wet at high speed.

Given 51% while driving a Mercedes Benz E Class (245/45 R18 W) on mostly motorways for 24,000 average miles
My W213 Mercedes came with these as original equipment. As the tyres wore down, the ride and handling deteriorated noticeably. Car felt a bit unstable, moving slightly sideways, when driving through small potholes. Never had this strange feeling with other cars. Increasing air pressure didn't help. Tyres were rotated and lasted about 25,000 miles then I changed to Goodyear Eagle Assymetric 3, which I found quiet, smoother and generally much more pleasant to drive on.

Given 91% while driving a Ford Focus Zetec S Ecoboost 180 (215/50 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 0 average miles
Best tyres I have ever had.I do about 40K miles a year and they served me well. Did 55K miles on the front tyres and the rear ones are on 85K miles at the moment, still about 10K left on them. What more do you want?

Given 80% while driving a Vauxhall Vectra SRI 1.9 (150) (215/55 R16) on a combination of roads for 45,000 spirited miles
I had the tyres on my vectra when bought 8 years ago, the rear are still on it, they have covered about 45k miles and still going, I had 2 sets of different tyres at the front but ended up going back to the michelins, I like their feel, they have decent grip in the dry and the wet and they last a good while.

Given 76% while driving a Ford Focus MK3 (215/50 R17) on a combination of roads for 40,000 spirited miles
Everything you would expect from Michelin. Superb Grip wet or dry. Lasted over 40,000 aggressively driven miles. Started to feel pretty horrible once worn down but still gripped well. Replaced with Toyo CF2's which are half the price and to me feel better and grip nearly as well in the wet.

Given 83% while driving a Ford c max (215/55 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 25,000 average miles
I drive a Ford Grand C-Max 1.6 Eco boost with these fitted on front and back. Have had car from almost new (780 miles) and covered 25000 mls so far - The tyres are still going strong! Even the fronts should last me a few more months until they get down to 3mm. The rears have got loads more tread left on them.
The grip feels good in both dry and wet and they don't seem excessively noisy. Have always gone for mid-range rubber before, but even though these tyres are on the expensive side I reckon they are worth it, so will be buying some more.

Given 76% while driving a CitroŽn 1.0 petrol (205/55 R17) on mostly town for 25,000 average miles
Comes as the default tyres set from the authorized car dealer. Been testing out various driving styles on straight roads, corners, slopes, off track, in both dry and wet. Good performance, reasonable comfort, but slightly low mileage on wear particular on sides. Maybe it is due to the regular cornerings in Multi-Storey Car Parks.

Given 71% while driving a CitroŽn C4 Grand Picasso (225/45 R17) on mostly motorways for 21,000 easy going miles
This has to be the worse wear rate to the tires I've driven.. worn pretty bad after 35,000km.
