Michelin Tire Myth

I just replaced my Michelin RFT with the Bridgestone Dueller RFT, I have approx 2000 miles on these tires now, I was a little concerned after reading the Tire rack reviews but after driving these in the snow yesterday I have to give them kudo's. I do remember how my
Michelin's felt when they were brand new so it isn't the " new tire syndrome"

1. Quicker turn in compared to the Michelin's
2. Much smoother ride
3. Much quieter- Michelins were noisy from day one.

I was never happy with the ride of the Michelin's and just chalked it up to my first experience with RFT tires, I can not see why anyone would spend over 300 per on the Michelin RFT.
