Sears salesperson says Michelin T Plus is similar to X-ONE but better because tread blocks are tied together better resulting in better wear and low noise. He says he used to work at their NTW store and had complaints on X-ONEs. I looked at both tires and could see the difference, so I think there might be something to that point.

He shocked me by actually recommending Michelin Rainforce, which is actually less expensive tire. He says the tire gives a better ride, less noise and has stronger rubber compound to wear better, particularly on the edge.

Comments, please?

Don't know about the other stuff, but I've always heard that the X-One was Michelin's longest wearing tire.
