    After reading some reviews I was gonna go with DWS06 but I thing AS3+ will be my next set of tires.
    Daily - 3.8 V6 Genesis Sedan with minor cosmetic mods
    Fun car - 94 Supra Turbo (Lagzilla) Too much mods and custom stuff to list.

    Thank you Glenn, I drive a minimum of 150 miles/day. Live in North Texas, prefer a plush ride but do enjoy recognizing that speed limits indicate the low end of the spectrum. Roads are decent with mostly highway. Seriously, thanks again for all of the guidance. Tried the Pirelli P7's, and Michelin A/S on my 2015 genesis previously and hated them.

    Sounds like you need something in the Grand Touring line or a very plush UHPAS.

    Grand Touring: Turanza Serenity, Premier A/S, Primacy MXM
    UHPAS: ExtremeContact DWS06, Pilot Sport A/S 3+, P Zero All Season Plus

    The Pzeros from Pirelli have a softer compound and do a bit better in the winter. Downside is the softer compound...tends to wear a bit short of the warranty.

    Hello everyone, again, thanks for all the guidance. Got a set of the PSA/S 3+ Put on my car last week. You were absolutely right, they are the perfect tire for this car. Rides and drives better than new. So happy I’m getting another set just to have a back up. Again, my sincere appreciation for the guidance. I couldn’t be happier with my choice.

    I have MXM4s on my G80 and i cant say i am a big fan even tho i am getting a little over 60k miles out of them. Vibration on smooth roads makes me wanna go try a different brand tire.

    Do you have an anti-gravity device to keep you from touching the road all the time? I changed mine at 30,000. Could have squeezed a bit more but was taking a 4000 mile trip and figured I'd eliminate a potential problem.

    I had the Primacy MXM4 changed out with 1500 miles to a new set of MXM4,s The stealer did not want to use a other tire company or other tire at all.
    Well I have 5000 miles and the same vibrations and wheel wobble. What a shame to put this tire on a top line auto.

    It's not the tires, its your car (or maybe the way the dealer installed the tires on your car if you are lucky). I would take them to Costco or Discount Tire for rebalance and rotation.

    It could be something else, but.. it could still be the tires. I had 2 sets of Michelin Primacy MXM4s that had bad vibration issues that could not be balanced out. I got a final swap for Conti Extreme Contact DWS06s that totally solved the issue. I don't suggest that all of the MXM4s are bad, but there have been many users on this forum who only solved their vibration issues with other tires. To be fair, some seem never to have solved the issue even after tire swaps. It could be a combination of things.

    Try the pirelli p zero all season plus good all around grip, handling plus superior ride quality over bumps and road imperfections
