The Michelins are a tiny bit "sportier" IMO, but I have a set on another car that are pretty much at the wear bars and they've been quite noisy these last 10k miles as well. They also aren't as good in the snow as the DWS either. In either case, the Michelins are currently not worth the premium over some other options in this "all season" segment IMO.
What I would do is wait until Michelin releases the new version of this tire in the summer of this year:
Either that or maybe consider the Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position as well.
