I currently use Dunlop D60A2, I'm thinking of trying the Michelins. I'm looking for something with better handling than the Dunlops, but with the same or better tread wear...
Has anybody tried the 2000 Michelin XGT H4?

Are you looking for an all season? I've heard very good things about Dunlop SP 5000, which is a high performance all season. If you want a quieter, smoother slightly less high performance tire that's decent in all weather, check out the Michelin Energy MXV4, which was tops in Consumer Reports and is stock on BMWs. It is a bit pricey, though.

I just put XGT H4s on my 2000 Ranger pickup. They are great....good in the rain...keep body roll to a minimum..and I haven't had them squeel once around a turn...highly reccomend

I hope you're not forced to change your opinion of XGT H4 in the rain. The XGT is infamous for TERRIBLE grip in the rain. All the Michelin ad hype is just that, hype. I couldn't wait to get the V rated version off of my '97 Integra. IMHO, the XGT is a dangerous tire in the wet. (V rated version anyway)

Its hard to get good answers on this question because people are mixing opinions of two different tires.
The old...XGT H or XGT V
The new... Pilot XGT H or Pilot XGT V
The neew Pilot is a newer design by over six years and has a totally differaent tread pattern and compounding.

I had the "old" XGT H4's on my wife's 4 cylinder Accord and was able to get wheel spin starting from some stops!!! Wet stopping distance was also very poor. Replaced tires with another brand. Wife does not care about Michelin quality if the quality tires don't stop the car.
