Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

This is the second set I have put on my BMW. These tires are great! Very happy with the purchase. I do both highway and city type of driving in this particular car (my daily driver) and I have been very pleased with they way they have performed and will buy them again. My only issue is that after they get about half worn, they get rather noisy! In my BMW it...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Was surprised how much these held up for so long. Went through 5-6 track days with these on and eventually heat cycled through them, but I'd recommend these to anyone looking for a great summer daily driver and occasional track/autocross. These were pretty responsive to steering inputs and held well during hard cornering. In the wet, they were worked pretty...  Read More

New Wheels and Tires For Your New Ford Focus RS

Did you just get a Focus RS or have one on the way? Depending on how you've configured your RS, you probably have 19x8 ET 50 dark grey cast alloy wheels on 235/35R19 Michelin Pilot Super Sports. For many RS drivers there is no need to upgrade. The Michelin Pilot Super Sport is a great match for those looking for a balanced tire. It's got a crisp steering...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2

So i cooked these tires after 3190 miles, hard driven, carving concrete, daily cruising speeds of 125 to 140 mph on my commute to work. Sometimes at 97mph...no peeling done until the very end when it was inevitable to replace them. This IS THE TIRE. On rainy days it will not disappoint you. A must buy.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

I'm not often compelled to write positive reviews, I tend towards writing negative reviews to assist others from making the same mistakes I have. In this case, this tire is not a mistake. I am coming from OEM Goodyear LS2 ROF (Run on Flat) tires in 245/45 19 size to the AS/3 + in the same size and the difference is nothing short of transformative.Most...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

These tires 100% live up to their reputation. They perform beyond well for a spirited street car. Road holding and feedback is fantastic, the ONLY drop from the horrible RTF's is a slight drop in steering response but that's as to be expected. The improvement in ride quality even for these ultra thin sidewall tires from the RFT's is staggering. It was beyond...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

By virtue of my car being an AWD slightly-high hatchback, it's tough to critique certain things like the tires' contribution to steering response. Nonetheless, I'm quite happy with these tires. I only needed to replace my rears, but for the cost of just those two tires in the OEM Pirelli run-flat model, I was able to afford a full staggered set of the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2

After sets of Michelin Pilot Exalto and Pilot Sport IIs I tried these. Not too bad compared the Michelins. At 12K miles the wear isn't disappointing and the tires are still behaving nicely. They are made in Germany so maybe my BMW likes them. No real complaints and over all a nice tire for the money.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I thought the stock Pirelli's that came with the car were a pretty good fit, but these Michelin Super Sports raise the bar dramatically. I track my car regularly in the summer and am amazed that lap after lap these tires perform as good on the 10th lap as they do after the 2nd warm-up lap. Other tires I have tried tend to loose grip after the 5th or 6th lap...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500

I was looking for a decent tire for my daily driver that occasionally sees a track and canyons. I initially was going to go the tried and true Michelin Pilot Super Sports. Glancing over the TireRack website I see a tire I have never seen before, the Indy 500. I was attracted to the tread design and the specs was what I was looking for. Better yet they were...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Use these tires for both street, highway and track days. Very responsive feel. Great handling. Excellent road feedback. Best all around performance tire I have installed. I have installed previously on other performance car and they are definitely an improvement of other performance tires I have used.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

These replaced the stock Dunlop Sport Maxx RT's. Instead of putting the new PSS's on the stock wheels, I had TireRack install these PSS's on Enkei TS9's with TPMS. These are now my summer set of wheels and tires. About 800 miles were initially covered for a road trip from Salem, OR to Ontario, OR and back. The roads were dry the entire trip, which meant...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I mostly plonk around the local twisties and highway with my 355, but a recent ~90 mile introductory track day at the nearby road course really put these babies front-and-center as incredible performance tires. A two mile ring with 9 total turns, including a sequence of diabolical hairpins, challenged me like I've never been challenged as an amateur sport...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Have had two sets of Pilot Super Sports on my E90 and have been very pleased. The dry grip is tremendous, the wet grip is very good, and they even perform reasonably well when it gets cold (but no snow). I have a dedicated set of winter tires so these are on the car from April to November. I've gotten three solid summers out of them and they still have a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

I wanted to get rid of the run flats that were on my BMW. I researched and came to 3 main tire options for what I needed and wanted. Michelin pilot SS, Bridgestone PP S04, continental dws super. I read how great the Bridgestone ranked and going head to head against the top dog in this category being the Michelin pilot super sport, these tires deserve mention...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

After Driving with these for 2 years I love this tire they are the smoothest most responsive all-seasons I've ever owned. My favorite part about them is the way they take the highway, when I switch from my winter set, it does not feel like the same vehicle. Let me say however, they need to get removed when the snow falls. Living in Massachusetts, these tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport ZP

Just a little background on me to understand my subjectivity. I am an aggressive driver and a track rat. I try to go to the track at least 2 times a month (or as my budget can afford). I push my car 9-10 tenths consistently. Yes, I am hard on tires... OK, so overall this is an great tire. As a street tire I would say that it is pretty good. Good traction in...  Read More
