Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 to its limits and beyond.
The school prides itself on using cars and SUVs that are not modified in any way from the versions on the showroom floor which includes: stock brake pads, calipers, suspension and the Porsche N-specification Original Equipment tires. Naturally, one would expect that any Porsche Carrera S, Cayman S or Boxster Spyder would come with some of the best handing tires available but I was pleasantly surprised to find that the PS2 was just as comfortable on the track as it is on the street or autocross course.
The track at Barber Motorsports is a fantastic combination of hairpin turns, short chutes and modest sweeping turns that test the driver, car and tires to respond to a variety of challenges. The facility also features a large wet skidpad, an autocross area and even several acres of woodlands for off-road testing in the very capable Porsche Cayenne.
After my experience, I can attest to the awesome capabilities of the Pilot Sport PS2 - quiet and fairly comfortable for street and highway use while responsive and confident on the track. Take a look at our Tire Survey Results to see how the PS2 compares to other Max Performance Summer tires.
