You can see my original blog post about this new Max Performance Summer tire here. In that post, I explained how the new Pilot Super Sport tires compare to the Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 tires. If you have the PS2 tires now, check out that blog post to see what kind of improvements you could expect to see.
Now, I actually have my hands on a set and have been driving on them for about two weeks.
- This tire is quieter than I expected. Even thought this is a Max Performance Summer tire and shouldn't have a very quiet ride...it does!
- The ride is not harsh at all. I was expecting a very firm ride that normally comes along with performance tires of this caliber. The Pilot Super Sport feels very composed and impacts are muted well.
- Grip levels are phenomenal. This is the most praised attribute of this tire that I've seen shared with other BMW forum members that have been posting about it.
To summarize, I love this tire. If you're looking for a tire with outstanding grip and handling without paying a large penalty in road noise and ride harshness then check here to see if this tire is available to fit your car.
