Just put a set on my Holden Calais (v6). Previous tyres were Michelin MXV3a but these have been discontinued and the direct replacement is the MXV8. Their is also a new XM1. Decided I would try the Sportier tyre as I tend to stop, go and corner harder than the standard driver for this luxury style car. First impressions are they are a little harder, very slight wind type noise, seeem to be more direct on the steering. Only basically driven home and back to work so will give further impressions if of interest. BTW. The standard fitment was 205x65x15. Went to 215x60x15. Rims are 6" The lower profile is probably part of the reason for the harder ride.
