MKT Tire Replacement

Thread starter #1
Replacing tires on 2012 MKT EcoBoost with 20" wheels.
Considering the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ or Michelin Premier LTX.
Currently have the Pilot Sport A/S 3+ but have some indication the Michelin Premier LTX is very quiet.
Before had Pilot Sport A/S 3 and they were quieter than the 3+.
I'm looking for quiet and a decent M&S tire.

Any input would be appreciated!

Replaced my original Goodyears with the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 a bit over a year ago. Initially, I loved them, but lately, they have become very noisy.
Dealer says that is typical for Michelins as they have harder rubber.
Personally, I would never buy these again.
My 2016 MKT ecoboost with 20inch wheel has come stock with Goodyear Eagle RS-A. I am a Yokohama /Continental/ Michelin fan given my previous experience.. Please do update once you have run about 10K on them in the winter/snow how they hold up.
I have had no experience with Goodyear's the discount tire guy asked me to drive them some more and said they are too new to waste and they are not going to give me more than 35 a tire if I give it to them because its an odd tire size.
