I highly recommend these tires. These tires have the highest price/performance ratio and does not differ from any expensive brand.

These tyres have been on the car since new, and I've covered 38,000 miles so far. There seems to be plenty of tread left in places, but unfortunately my tracking has been out, causing heavy tyre wear on the inside of the tyres.

I tend to drive on fairly hard tyres as part of a 'hypermiling' driving style, but even at the recommended pressures i find these tyres are very noisy at motorway speeds. They also have quite a poor rating on their EU label, apart from that, i cannot fault these are great as an all round tyre. I'm looking into replacements, and I would potentially buy them again.

Writing about the Michelin Primacy Alpin PA3 given 92% (205-55-16-H)
Driving on a combination of roads for 16 average miles
I've just put these back on my Leon for their second winter season. They are wonderful winter tyres: quiet, comfortable and have excellent stopping power on cold mornings. They feel safer than my summer tyres (Pirelli P7 and previously Pirelli Pzero Nero) when it's cold and damp - i.e. most of winter in the UK - and they work well in snow too: I've driven home over hilly country lanes with about 3-4 inches of fresh snow on top of compacted snow/ice with only a few flashes of the TCS/ESP light. With my previous (summer) tyres, I had to resort to snow chains in similar circumstances or I'd have to abandon the car at the bottom of the steep hill.
The PA3s are slightly noisier than the Pirelli P7s, but much quieter than Pirelli P-Zero Neros - I think they're quiet for a winter tyre. They do tend to 'sing' when driving through standing water at high speed though. If you are nervous about driving during blizzards or other bad winter weather, I highly recommend these tyres. On dual carriageways, you can confidently drive on the slushy lane that everyone else is avoiding. They are quite stable during cornering - not excessively 'squishy' - but they don't match a good summer tyre on warmer days, of course.
