    Michelin is good, absolutely 0% road noise. Grip is good and at par with bridgestone.(personally I would rate Michelin as the best)

    With Michelin, you may actually not hear the tyre squealing, so you won't know if it is halting; but in reality - it will halt even better. With Bridgestone, you will feel that it is stopping and rubbing, as u can hear the tyre squeal.

    I know about G3, but really don't know about Adrenalin RE002, but should be similar product to G3. I really didn't like bridgestone as it required balancing every 5k kms. Any sports pattern tyre won't last for many miles, or even if it lasts, it won't be as good as new(but only after considerable miles though). Michelin would be giving slightly better life, and you should note - it is a bit expensive as well.

    Congrats @Passione84 .. Time to start another Thread for your beauty !! Amazingly gorgeous !!
    About the tyres, if you are an aggressive driver, you might not like michelin 3ST so much since its having softer sidewalls. A friend of mine tried it in his linea but then switched to yoko S drives for its harder sidewalls, for zero roll during hard cornering and swift lanechanges since he does lot of hill range runs. Michelin would be great for silent and comfy ride in highways though.
