I'm in Hilton (near Rochester).....
I've recently mounted some 235/45-17 Pirelli PZero Nero M&S on my
2004 TL. Before that, I was running 235/45-17 Michelin Pilot
Sport A/S's. The Pirelli's are quieter and almost as good at dry
handling as the Michelins. The Michelins are exceptional handling
tires and great in the snow. The reason I went with the Pirellis
is to see if I could give up a little in handling to gain some
better wear (I got 24,000 miles with the Michelins -- but that
may have been somewhat due to the alignment), a little bit
quieter tire and not give up to much (hopefully) with winter
grip. I can't speak to the Pirelli's in the snow yet. We'll see.
If they don't give me the advantages I was looking for, I'll go
back to the A/S's as they were exceptional tires in sow, wet, and
Anyway, the Pirellis are pretty good so far but I miss the
exceptional handling of the Michelins (we'll see about the snow).
The $60 less per tire for the Pirelli's helped with the decision.
Not the Pirelli PZero Nero M&S's -- which is what I bought. They
are Ultra High Performance All-Season Tires. See them here:
You're probably referring to the Pirelli PZero Rosso Asimmetrico
-- which ARE summer tires.
