I always bought Michelin tires and everything was ok, but this time I'm disappointed very much. They've become awfully noisy over 2.5 years. I balanced them twice but it didn't help.

I installed these tires about 15 months ago and have 12K miles now. So far the treadwear is good but it seems to me that won't last long. The tires are smooth but ride quality is relatively worse than my previous tires on.
