Just replaced my Michelin LTXs M & S, which were very good when new. Got General Grabber HTS - No. 1 recommendation of Consumer reports. A new tire from General for 2008, not used on the new Gen PFs. WOW, what adifference in the quiteness, ride quality, roadability over the Michs and absolutely over the OEM Dunlops (what shi....y tire that was). We're expecting snow in the next day here in NY area. I'll report back on the tires in those conditions, but in the dry pavement, it's like I had the whole suspension upgraded.....very impressed in the first 150 miles..
