Given 87% while driving a Audi A4 1.9 TDI (225/50 R17) on a combination of roads for 10,000 spirited miles
Very good tyre, never let me down, awesome on rain, good handling, very soft under -0.

Compared with Continental TS830 almost equal tyres.

Cool tyres for my 1.2 skoda yeti. So far I'm using them 1 year mainly country roads, some highway. They are certainly not made for summer above 30C, but below that point I have nothing to complain. In winter they have better grip compare to Conti. Not very progressive, quite soft to drive even below -10C

Given 95% while driving a Mercedes Benz SLK 200 (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 5,000 spirited miles
Got them for a skiing trip to the Austrian alps. On the way there I drove them at high speed on the German Autobahn (limited to 210 kph due to H index). None of the usual noise and other discomforts. Very good in the rain and on wet roads. Even on the dry they grip much better than the fatter Nokian summer tyres I currently run. On snow and ice they are superb.

Had Vredestein tyres (used ones that came with the car) before and never felt comfortable with them. Drove on snow covered mountain roads at night and had tons of fun without the usual panic attacks. On ice I was fine too. Only when I had to get out of the car (e.g. Hotel park site) I realize how dangerously slippery it was.

Kept them on for a while after where they had to cope mostly with wet roads and mild snowfall. There the high level of comfort and great road feedback came into play. When taking them off I didn't detect much wear at all (despite some "fun" driving in the dry).

All in all Michelin produced yet another great Alpin Tyre. It's so good, I wish winter would last a bit longer.

Given 91% while driving a Audi A4 2.0 TDi 170 S Line (225/45 R17) on mostly motorways for 8,000 average miles
Very good Tyre. Quiet, perfect on snow with superb traction, superb in wet...no aquaplaning at all. Not that good As Michelin Pilot Alpine tires (not for very sporty-hard driving. Still easy outperforms any Blizzak, Good Year, Dunlop tires.
