Sorry to have neglected the thread mkosel, I was gone for most of the Thanksgiving weekend. The PA2 is pretty similar to the TS810S in that both are performance oriented winter tires. I like the Michelin a little better, although as you correctly noted, they are being replaced by the PA3.
I have accepted a new position at Tire Rack and am no longer in the sales department. firstname.lastname@example.org
is available to assist with M3 questions.
