I'm using this tyre on a stock Ford Focus MK3 Hatchback, the sidewall tend to be soft, and at many instance a fast uneven corner maneuver feel wobbling.

The +ve is that this tyre is very quiet and has lower rolling resistance, grip both wet and dry were fine as well.

Given 86% (breakdown) while driving a Ford AU wagon (225-45-17-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 30,000 average miles
The large (12 year old) station wagon I put these on changed the drive considerably. The car has done 310000 Km, so it has seen a number of different tyres. These Michelin's instantly made the road noise almost disappear, so much so, my wife (who has no interest in tires) commented 'the car is now as quiet as mine'. Believe me, that is a huge complement.
As for the ride, it makes the car feel much more expensive to drive. Meaning, it has a smoother ride. The car doesn't get driven hard, so I can't comment how the tires would preform on a performance car, but these tires are not designed for high performance. The grip in dry and wet has been excellent for normal driving. Again, if you are in the market for a high performance tire, buy a high performance tire. If your after a luxury touring tire (a tire for a family car) which is super quiet, very comfortable and a pleasure to drive on, this is worth every cent.
So far 50000 km and about 40% tread left (about 50% city, 50% highway driving), driving 'normally'.
I'm going to put these on my wife's car as soon as the Goodyear's need replacing.

Great tires,but stay away from this if you are driving in roads with lot of potholes as side walls are week, also increases the body roll by a bit,may not be good for car which has high stance already.
This can also damage the Alloy wheels due to it's oft nature.

Michelin are the bench mark, nothing else come close.
Yes they are expensive but you get what you pay for, small price to pay for your families safely while driving.
I doubled the value of my 12 yr old commodore when I put these eon 3 years ago but well worth the premium cost.

Very comfort and quiet tyre. Sidewall little bit cushioning but acceptable.

Driving on a combination of roads for 3,000 spirited miles
These tyres seem to have very little cushioning giving a brittle ride. Quiet on smooth roads but very noisy on coarse roads. Good steering response but poor steering feel. At the limit they break away violently. Grip in wet and dry is only average. Lots of body roll. Marketed as a premium tyre but drives like a budget tyre.
