There'* a set on the 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis we just bought. The car drives like a dream....but I don't know how much of that is due to the Michelins on it. For what it'* worth, there'* only 1,500 miles on the tires.

I used them for a while, but I'm not generally a fan of Michelin. They are far to hard and prone to cracking as they age.

I had them on my old 1997 Park Avenue -they look and ride nice, but they wear fast..... I didn't really ever drive and it never was driven hard. They were pretty much new when I got the car. Sold/traded to parents who sold it 3k later to my aunt and uncle. Anyhow, 24k after I got the car all 4 tires were shot -oh, and the car was aligned shortly after I got the car because the trans was swapped.

I do like the whitewall version -would look nice on your car.

I have a set on my car now......have improved the ride, low noise level and very good wear. I have about 18K on the set, and I'm very happy with them

I have these on my car... put them on about 4,000 miles ago.. they're not bad. Much better than the firestones that came from the factory anyway!
