for high performance tires, Michelin will always be the most expensive - not the "best" tire, just the most money. The S03s, P Zeros, F1s and even the Contis are all "better" tires and cost less than Pilots.

what's to explain, ced?.....Michelin chose to price em one way...bridgestone the other....

If you're question means...which is better...higher price doesn't necessarily mean better, when its about the two tires in question...

But then again...I don't push my street tires...that's what the track is for....straight and smooth is what the streets will see...I expect to get at least 25k miles out of the Bridgestones.<br><font color=maroon><font size=1><font>

I have owned dozens of sets of Michelins and they are always perfectly round, get a perfect balance and wear smooth for the life of the tire. Whenever I try cheaper brands, they always disapoint me. One item is inability to get a perfect balance.<br>

I'm due for fronts, I've replaced my rears w/ the pilots. My fronts will likely get about 4K more than my rear. Tirerack doesn't recommend mixing brands because the M3's handling and sensitivity. A garden variety 3 series more than likely will not indicate to the driver the differences from handling according to the tirerack guy. So, I guess more Pilots...By the way, I love these tires.<br>

but in this situation i dont think that holds all that well. Bridgestone got hit pretty bad a few years ago after the whole tire blowing fiasco with Ford. I think the S03 is their way of showing that they still make quality tires for an affordable price. I think they have really out done themselves with the S03. I think it's simply best bang for buck out there, although i have no experience on the complete lifespan of the tire.
