Next time I will try to get the German made GSD3's. Although the Goodyears were available from tire rack I just could not get them locally...reason being due to a massive discount I get on Michelins It would have been kewl to drive a German autobahn tire on the interstates though So what is the A/S Pilot's weaknesses? Are they quiete or noisy as heck? I did ride in a new Cadillac Deville with them installed. They were quite and buttery smooth...then again devilles are already quiet and buttery smooth *lol* Thanks and users of the Pilot A/S here?
