New Pirelli P7 AS+ for my FWD 17"

So 2 weeks ago, I finally got those new tires for my TL to take advantage of the $70 rebate. I've been buying tires from Discount Tires for the last 15 years and they always have the best price and service. The experience actually varies from store to store so you'll need to find a store that works for (or with) you.

So after 1000 miles, I find these tires very smooth and quiet per the reviews. I run them 34psi cold. I haven't pushed them in corners yet but I feel they perform about the same as those Michelin Primacy MXM4s I replaced. For the price difference ($155 vs $250), it was a no brainer. I hope they will last at least 50K miles. I also considered the Bridgestone Serenity AS+ but the rep say they may be quieter from the beginning but as will get louder as they wear due to the thread pattern. Same thing with Continental DWS and DWS06. Plus the Continentals will wear out faster due to their rubber compound. He thinks the Primacy MXM4s are the best for the car but agrees that they are expensive.

As for the background, I swapped the stock Pilot MXM4s for the Primacy MXM4s at 20K miles. Now at 70K miles, I replaced them with the Pirellis. The MXM4s were good at everything but I feel like they are a bit loud and rough on concrete surface. And they are too expensive for my size (245-50-17).

You have 30 days, to exchange them. Use it like I did 5 times! Use tire rack consumer rating for your size. Heck discount tire even bought my Eagle rs that came with my car. I did not want them I could tell they sucked day 1 of driving them.
