If you're not super concerned about mileage:

I hung a Michelin Pilot GT on mine earlier this year, and the handling and rain performance was fantastic. From what I understand, they are out of production, so what's left on shelves is it.

. . . . it's about shot - with 10k miles on it.

Not out of production. The rumor started a buying panic and suppliers are short right now but Michy says they'll be back to full supply soon. What the real story seems to be is that they are developing a replacement for the Pilot GT and when it's ready next year then the GT will be dropped. Ther's another thread that was started earlier this week about it.

Hey gang,

Not sure if you consider this rumor or not, I don't. Here is what I found out directly from Michelin.

I emailed Michelin and this is the direct quote, "The Michelin Pilot GT is being discontinued" Dale Consumer Care Department

The next email about a replacement came back like this, "Unfortunately, the decision to discontinue this tire has already been made. Usually, these decisions are
made due to limited demand in the marketplace. Also, if there is a
replacement tire being developed (which will not be in the year 2010), older
models have to be discontinued before the new ones can take their place. We
apologize for any inconvenience this has caused you and we appreciate your
consideration of Michelin tires!"
