I'll never have LS2 tires again! The Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 2 tires were heads and shoulders better in just about all respects, except that they cost so much for only 30,ooo miles and were a lot stiffer than any other tires I've had. Otherwise, I agree that the Conti's are a great choice.Interesting comment as the DWS-06s are a performance oriented albeit all season tire unless you mean a purely performance tire...there is a set of these on the GF's 2013 3LT 2.0T and they are so much better than the OEM Goodyear Eagle LS2s were...
If you're leaning towards performance I'd go for the DWS-06 or similar. The TrueContacts are very good for emergency braking/maneuvering when cold, but they overheat and feel greasy after 3-4 corners of pushing the car at 7/10ths. They aren't slide off the road greasy, and they return to normal grip shortly afterwards, but I expect a HP or UHP all-season to sacrifice some longevity to provide better grip and resist overheating.Yea I would also like some what of a performance tire not crazy low pro just a little tougher tire, You guys are giving me some good options thanks!
I have Michelin Defenders on my '14 Malibu. They've been excellent. Great braking and can handle Montana roads in the winter. I have about 52K miles on them and there's still more tread left.Hopfully i cant get some replies to this thread.... My "15" malibu 1lt is needing tires and I was wondering what you guy like for a good durable all season tire? Michelin? Goodyear assurance? Kellies? or?
