You don't need Michelins Igor.
Today the worst winter tire is superior to the best winter tire that was produced 5 years ago.
By saying that, I wouldn't buy the cheapest/no brand name.
But if you can find a Blizzak or similar at a better price.........

Hey Doru
I know its not for everyone but when i choose rims / tires i have very limited choices
Rims should be only OE
Tires should be only Conti or Michelin

These Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus are basically all season tires ... also winters here are not like in Canada , sometimes we have no snow at all



Have you got your Exhaust tip ??
