It is the thinner and softer compounds that contribute to the
performance of the tire. Durability isn't a primary design objective
for high performance tires. Which laws of physics/vehicle dynamics
(never heard of any laws of vehicle dynamics, but I'll humor you) are
you referring to? I think you've outdone yourself on the amount of
misinformation you can squeeze into one paragraph.
That only proves that you are a lousy driver and they are very good
drivers. No science involved at all.
Load rating is only one aspect of tire quality. If you make your
decisions based on that alone, you are really ignorant.
I bought a set about two months ago for my 2000 stock Intrepid, ditching the
factory Goodyear Eagle GA tires which gave me pretty good service for about
HUGE DIFFERENCE in ride and handling on these tires. The car feels
"planted" to the road now, handles better and I couldn't be happier.
Pricey, although I got a good deal from my local NTB (formerly owned by
Sears) when I told them I had a lower quote from a different local chain (no
lie, it was better). They matched the price and I left happy. So far, no
problems, although I haven't driven the car in deep snow.
If you can afford it, I'd heartily recommend them. Good luck.
Would like to have the Michelins on my '02 Stratus to replace the Goodyear
Eagle GT-HRs that are on there now, but can't swing the funds.
