Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I've done a lot of work on my car - engine now produces 380 hp, performance suspension, Brembo brakes, sport wheels, so I needed high performance tires to go with it. At the same time, I didn't want tires that would wear too fast, so ultra performance and race tires were out. The Pilot Sports seem to fit the bill.Cornering is excellent and very easily...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I replaced my Eagle F1's with theses tires, which I had on my WRX as original equipment. The F1's stuck like glue in the summer on a perfect day only. I live in OH and there's rarely a perfect day. The F1's in the morning when it was cold, slid like crazy and I could barely old the car in a straight line with the lightest of rain. I recommendd the Super...  Read More

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

I bought a set of the Michelin Pilot A/S 3+ V rated tires to replace asset of A/S 3 Y rated tires. As the older tires wore they started to tramline horribly - to the point that they were scary to drive on bad freeways. I was concerned about dropping from ultra high performance (Y) to high performance (V). So far so good. I drove from Seattle to Portland in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

Replaced the OEM installed Bridgestone Potenza RE050A tires with only 13,000 miles on the clock and installed the new Michelin Pilot 4S tires. I've had prior experience with some Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 tires, as well as two sets of Michelin PSS tires on different cars, and Michelin knocked it out of the park again.Summary = Superb traction and handling...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Initial Review, I will be reporting in 10 to 15k increments I hope. I just installed these coming from the Cooper CS5 Ultra Touring and its a night and day difference for the better.In comparison the Coopers get a 10 for noise because they are scary quiet. But they go away fast, don't do as well in the wet as claimed, are a bit choppy on imperfections, and...  Read More

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

These tire made a positive change in all areas the day they were installed. They replaced the factory Bridgetone tire which were very uncomfortable and hard riding.. Would recommend these tires to my friends without question.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2

I drive my car pretty hard through the canyons but also cruise through the city and usually on the weekends I take it to the local autox events. These tires are AMAZING, replaced my stock dunlops and these are night and day. Grip is excellent in the dry or in the wet it doesn't matter what you throw at them. Dry weather they just grip and go amazing Road and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

These are the best tires I have owned in 45 years in all categories. My research was primarily on tire racks site. My s2000 handles incredibly now and much much better than the previous set of bf Goodrich tires. The ride is smooth and somewhat luxurious considering my suspension and the known performance capabilities of this sports car. The rubber is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

Until I purchased the new Michelin Pilot Sport 4S I have been driving Bridgestone run flat tires since I purchased my first Z4 3.5 (tuned with Stage 1 Cobb Accessport v3) since 2010. I have driven on OEM, Pole Position and the Drive Guards. Unfortunately, I totaled my 2011 Z4 with 17 inch tires but found a low mileage 2013 Z4 3.5 (also Cobb tuned) with the M...  Read More

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

After going last winter on my stock PSS tires (not the best idea I've had), I got a set of all seasons for the winter. The tires are staggered like my summers (225/245). Our one snow event this year was a week before the tires arrived, but I've had the tires in freezing temps, rain, and a paced event at Virginia International Raceway. The tires were better...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2

OUTSTANDING TIRES!!!! I can't say enough good things about them. I drive a combination of daily and track. I currently have almost 4K miles and 3.5 track days on the tires since mounting and these are SO MUCH BETTER than Super Sports. Not only have a I improved my track time by 1.5 seconds, these have much more life than the Super Sports that I have put on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

These tires were driven hard on the highways and streets of Southern California where the roads have lots of holes and debris, got 51k on before the front tire started to show cords on the inner front tires , but the rears are barely to the wear marks in the tires, still got a little life on them. Rotated about every 6k miles. Plus my wife went over a median...  Read More

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

My car has staggered tires so I cannot rotate them like I would like to for that optimal mileage. But so far with a little over 5,000 miles on them I am quite impressed with the overall tire performance. I have driven in the snow, ice and a lot of rain living in the Northwest. I was debating getting snow tires this year vs. the all season. I was driving on...  Read More

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

Got these tires to replace the crappy tires that came with the car at the dealership, Sentry UHP tires. Far and away a huge difference. First thing I noticed was that on a hard launch there was absolutely no tire chirp or loss of traction, even with traction control off. My old tires would slip and chirp even with the traction control on. These tires grip...  Read More

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

I've only had the tires for a couple of months. We had a brief snowstorm on the EastCoast this month and though it was a few inches, the tires handled very well. They are GREAT! in the rain and handle very well but I didn't want to push my limits. On dry roads, let's just say if you want to push your car, these tires respond and you'll gain more confidence...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

Honestly one of the best tires ever. I've always been a fan of Michelin (although they can be a bit expensive at times) and am extremely pleased with the Pilot Sport 4S. I've owned em all from PIlot sport 2, PIlot Sport 3, PIlot Super Sport and was lucky enough to run a set of PIlot Sport Cup 2's. But these are truly amazing. I highly recommend them. I threw...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

My main tire purchase focus was comfort, road noise and dry traction. I reviewed technical and consumer ratings for several tire options including original equipment Eagle RSA and Michelin Pilot AS 3+ / Primacy MxM4tires and the Pirelli Conturato All Season +. In the end, I selected the Pirellis and I am very happy so far. One tire dealer said I didn't need...  Read More

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

I looked long and hard about 3-4 years ago for a new set of shoes for my 2010 Infinite M35X, and thought these looked like the best bang for the buck...and I have not been disappointed. They only allowed me to rate myself as spirited, but it was a lot closer to psychotic with delusions of grandeur that he's speed racer in his old man car before I started...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

Pilot Sport 4S's are exceptional. Buy them. I replaced the OEM Pirelli P Zeros after 5,500 miles and four years. The Pirelli's had another 1,000 to 1,500 miles remaining on them. However, I wanted the very best rubber on this Gallardo LP 550-2 going into the spring/summer driving season. Normal drives in this Gallardo are spirited 75 to 150 mile treks on...  Read More
