After going thru about half dozen of these (the Kenda's), I decided to try something different with better/less rolling resistance which were these Michelin's. The price was great & it looked more dedicated to street, with no thick knobbies.
Well, I was wrong. These tires and there side walls are very soft, no matter how many PSI you put into 'em they always ride/look as if they are low on air. Cornering at times (and Im not talking warp speeds, almost parallel to the ground), feels as if the tire is going to come off the wheel. Also because the rubber/compound is so soft the rolling resistance is horrible compared to the Kendra's I always used.
What is shocking & dissapointing is I do use Michelins on my dedicated offroad MTB (I am a big "Wild Gripper hot S" fan), and they have always been stellar! I am just going to go back to using the Kendra Kross plus's for my commuter, they are tried and true, and only double in price of these Michelins, which is still a bargain in $$.
PROS: Easy Mounting On Wheel, cheap
CONS: Bad Cornering Side Walls, Side Walls Super Thin
CONS: They are not white walls
