I've run both and I agree with this statement. But now I want to go back to the GY! I used the BFGs on the track one day and didn't like them. Felt like they were squishy / greasy. But the GY's are like hockey pucks on ice when it's chilly outside. You can nearly kill yourself. But hey, they're really summer tires...

Just wanted to follow-up after a couple of weeks with the AS3+'s. They are good. Quiet for sure. I was worried that they would be very squirrely when trying to get on the gas out of a corner but they aren't, they hook up just fine for street driving.

Definitely recommend as an affordable 3-season tire in our size.

Had the Michelin AS3+'s installed yesterday at Costco. $905 out the door. No more worrying about the temperature dropping below 50 = priceless...

Would highly recommend these for anyone in a cold climate that wants to drive their 1LE. Magnificent, very sticky, quiet tire..

Donuts for the installers will pay huge dividends..

Don't let them take your factory, metal valve stem caps. $6.50 each at the dealer..
