Michelin Cross Climate + are very good for an all season tyre.

To only get 16K out of a set of Michelin's either means incorrect pressures / alignment OR an enthusiastic driving style.

On my last car I had PS3's and swapped them for the 4's. They are a great tyre but found them lacking in the cold and wet. I did have 2nd set of wheels and Goodyear Ultragrip winter tyres though.

If you're sticking with a dedicated summer the the new Eagle Assy 5 looks good and better priced.

Michelin do sem to last longer than other brands too. Although the PS3 lost grip towards the end of it life.

My GT Line came with PS3's which are nearly done on the front at 16k. I'm going to put crossclimate+ on it, as Ive gone from 305bhp to 130bhp....and lost a cylinder!

It's hard to tell whether 16k is good or bad... it comes down to how you use the car. Lots of hard acceleration / braking / cornering will wear out the tyres sooner than a car driven primarily on the motorway with minimal braking / acceleration / cornering.

But you have a GTI... you bought a performance car, so you want the tyres to keep up with it. I would go with Michelin Pilot Sport 4. In my experience, on a heavy 407 coupe on the rear tyres, the wear is standard.

Those crossclimate tyres are good for daily drivers BUT with one caveat. In the summer, they aren't as good as summer tyres such as the PS4 and in the winter, not as good as proper winter tyres. It's a jack of all trades and a master of none.

I have found running the Cross Climate + does cure the 308 trait of the back moving around / jumping / stepping out slightly on cornering.

Recently put a full set of Goodyear Efficient Grips on and find them to be equally good in the wet and dry, even when pushing it. They are also one of the quietest tyres on the market. I would thoroughly recommend 👍

The cross climate + was an update to the cross climate to give better longevity.

What changed with the new Michelin CrossClimate Plus - Tyre Reviews

Goodyear Efficient Grip Performance are good tyres, had them on my old car and new car, it's a fantastic mixture of performance and economy. Similar to PS4 really but I do think PS4 has the edge. I've got Dunlop Sportmaxx RT2's, the sister brand and tyre to the Goodyears and have noticed some horrible radial cracks inbetween the tread. Put me off both Dunlop's and Goodyears tbh.

To be honest, any premium tyre in the same category (summer, performance, winter, economy etc) and all will be fairly similar.

Had Goodyear Efficient Grip Performance fitted on my old 206 after reading all the rave reviews, I just didnt rate them & found them dreadful in the wet.

My 308 came with Goodyear Efficient Grip fitted, again didnt rate them & so useless in the wet even with at least 4mm on they got replaced for a set of Cross Climate +

My mothers 2004 Mondeo has Goodyear Efficient Grip Performance fitted & on that car there perfectly fine whenever I've driven the car.

The only other issue with the Goodyear Efficient Grip are soft / easily damaged sidewalls.
