Michelin Pilot Super Sport
Initial Review: 5,000 miles on tires
February 20, 2013

I crashed my S2000 in the rain due to bad tires, so I bought these for my repaired S2K because I heard that A) they came on a lot of new super cars, B) Michelin makes tires for space shuttles!, and C) the tires are less expensive than the value I put on my life. I no longer drive extremely fast in the rain, so I can't say for sure here. For warm weather, these tires are amazing. Even when it got to 10 degrees F, these tires were very predictable. Obviously, never attempt to use these on snow or ice... that being said, I was able to maneuver my S2000 around my snowy driveway in December going 1.00 MPH, which is better than my last tires. I compared my S2K with a newer Evo (that had nice tires) around corners in the summer; obviously the Evo was faster because I am not a pro driver and didn't have traction control, but the S2K was still respectable. For winter, I use Blizzaks on all my other cars, and my S2K hibernates in the garage. If you like extremely good tires in only hot weather, I highly recommend this tire!
