Michelin vs Metzler

I have found, though Metzlers cost more than Michelins, I get maybe 12% more miles out of them and they seem to me to handle about the same. The big difference for me is how long the front tires last -- the Metzlers will last maybe 40% longer.
Anyone else notice this?

Re: Michelin vs Metzler

I've had a few sets of metzeler z6s on my '09 RT and notice they seem to last longer than michelins or Contis that i've had. But this is totally unscientific as is the observation that they seem to attract nails more than other brands (2 on a x country trip).
