Has anyone heard of Michelin discountinue the Pilot MXX3 tire and replacing them with the Pilot Sport..
My car came with the MXX3's some of the sport models that year came with the Goodyear F1's.. My local tire shop is telling me they can't get the MXX3's anymore... I dont want to spend $1100.00 on new tires I won't like.... I love the MXX3's I am on my second set.. It's time for a third set...

The MXX3 are great tires, but I believe Michelin moved to the Pilot Sports.

Send http://www.tirerack.com an email about your question. They respond fairly quickly.

You are correct...the Pilot Sport replaced the MXX3. Look around; there may be some leftovers somewhere, perhaps even at a deal.

No matter, once you ....

ride on the Pilot Sport you will quickly forget about the MXX3. Far superior, IMHO. Hope this helps..
