After five sets of Michelin Pilot Exalto PE2 tires, the PE2 tires became unavailable in the 225/45-17 size. I'm excited to try the Pilot Super Sport tires as replacements. In comparison, the Super Sports have a slightly higher tread wear rating, and the pricing is similar. The tires are just as quiet, and a bit softer riding than the PE2's. The handling is even better, both dry and wet. The only slight negative is the turn-in is a bit slower, perhaps due to less stiff sidewalls or beads which are helping improve the ride quality. No matter, my TSX with a slightly modified suspension/brakes handles like it's on rails in the dry and wet, making the daily commute a little more fun!
