I have looked at the x-one and price is no object. Spending a few extra dollars for comfort is ok with me. I am concerned about the road noise on the Michellins. I have seen several reports/surveys and they all seem to indicate a more than average road noise from the Michellin line.
They also don't list any tire as a standard touring radial, which is the catagory that is supposed to be the smoothest riding tire type. All michellins are listed as either All-weather or Grand touring. Im I wrong on this? Any clarification on why Michellin doesn't consider or rate their tires as standard touring would be much help.
I would absolutely consider them if I knew they were as smooth as the other standard touring such as the Bridgestone RE900(I have be told this tire is actually the Potenza RE900 now), or Yokohama AVID Touring(I already own a set of Yokohama S305's,they are good handlers for the money)
Is Michellin's radial(X-one) smooth enough to fit the standard touring catagory?
Thanks for all the help in advance.....
