Michelin Pilot Super Sport
Initial Review: 30,000 miles on tires

Yes, yes, yes! Thats all that needs to be said, but I'll explain my love for these tires. I've driven 30,000 miles on the PSS in my 535i and I absolutely love them! I purchased a 2007 335i a few weeks ago and its sitting on Hankook Ventus V12 Evo's, which don't even compare.
Due to the sport package on each car the tires can't be rotated. My first set of PSS's lasted 15k miles in the rear. I have 15k on my 2nd set of rears and they still have at least 35% tread left. I'm at 30k on the fronts and they're down to 20% tread but the grip is still unbelievable.
Even with the worn down fronts the Michelin PSS tires have better turn-in, stability, and both wet/dry traction than the Hankook Ventus V12s. They're also quieter and more comfortable. My 535i out-handles the 335i despite its heavier weight all because of the Super Sports.
I can't wait for these trashy Hankook's to wear down - which should be quickly due to poor tread wear - so I can put Michelin PSS tires on my 335i too! Michelin really blew the competition to pieces on this one as no other Max Performance tires have this much grip & composure.
