New shoes! Michelin Pilot A/S 3

Just got a killer deal on some new tires! 329 a tire mounted/balanced/full alignment. Then two days later it snowed here in Kentucky/cincy area and they did awesome! I slid starting out then once I got to the first stop sign I was good to go. I would highly recommend these tires if you're looking to replace your Goodyear F1's for the winter. (Found out one of my F1's had a nail through the inner corner of my side wall on my back left tire. Luckily it made a tight seal and didn't leak air.) I'm super happy with my replacements though!

Can you post pics of what these look like on the 1LE? When I put these on my Z06 I loved the performance but wasn't crazy about the look.

Thanks and great choice!!

Thank you! Yeah I agree with that! They're awesome tires! I love them, and I personally think they look pretty good! The side wall is a little bigger so to me it gives the appearance of lowering the car a little bit. Here's the pictures though!

I am liking the AS/3s a few thousand miles on em now. Great in the wet and as the temps drop below 40 very planted on these tires. Flat out the best tire for a year round daily driver. And yes they are OEM spec sized.

I just got mine a few days ago after the weather started getting bad here in KC area. It's day and night compared to the stock tires. Def worth the money if you plan to use it as your DD like I do. Decided to go with all season tires vs dedicated snow tires since these tires had good reviews and can keep them on all year round.

Yeah man, before I got these tires on I wasn't able to even make out my complex due to the freezing temp and ground being frozen. Now I can actually drive and tires stick pretty good so far. Made it up a few inclines too.

Replaced my F1s with these as well. Happy with them so far with a couple thousand miles so far. I park my car on a slight incline and have been unable to test them in snow so far as the car doesn't want to get going up the hill very well. Still waiting to get a good test in snow driving before I decide if they were a great buy or not. In rain, they are great to drive in and likewise on dry pavement.
