I recently put 4 new Michelin HydroEdge tires on my '94 9000 CSE. These are the best tires I have experienced on this car or my previous '90 900SE (I had Dunlop Sport A2, Bridgestone Potenza 910 and Michelin XGT H4). I drove in Ontario during snow, ice, slush and rain. The tires are unbelievable in the wet. Very directional, smooth, responsive and great breaking in the wet. I also like the 85,000 mile treadwear warranty. My only concern is that they are quite firm and transmit road bumps. But on a good road they feel like gliding. Paid about U$ 110 each. Hope it helps, LeonB. --- Outgoing mail is certified Virus Free. Checked by AVG anti-virus system ( Version: 6.0.580 / Virus Database: 367 - Release Date: 2/7/2004
