Michelin Pilot Super Sport
Follow-Up Review: 15,000 miles on tires
I am still loving my tires! They are wearing better than expected and the ride is still as smooth and quite. The only negative aspect of these tires is probably their ability to attract screws? I guess they are so sticky that they attract screws and nails. I have picked and pulled three screws out of my tires so far and thankfully none of them penetrated the tire. They must have a thick steel barrier that protected me from having a puncture. Don't wast anymore time researching or comparing them with anything else. Just get them and enjoy how amazing they are! My JBD powered Diesel runs 4.7 second 0-60 and 13.0 in the quarter with these tires.
Initial Review: 10,000 miles on tires
I purchased a set of 19 rims as a summer set up and went with the recommended 8.5 & 9.5 package. I choose the Pilot Super Sport when I heard they were replacing the PS2's based on Tire reviews and E90 Post reviews. At first I was afraid of moving up to a 19 wheel and tire from my O.E.M. 18 Bridgestone run flats because I really like the way road and handled. These Super Sports are by far the best tires I have ever purchased. They ride exceptionally quiet and smooth and handle like nothing I have ever experienced. I can't say enough about the performance and the killer aggressive look. The only complaint I may have is the tread life. I recently removed them from my car to change over to my factory 18 rims and Blizzaks and noticed that the tread depth is going quick. This being said, I plan to use them till the end and then I may switch to a High Performance All Season tire (DWS?) that will give me more than two summer seasons. If money wasn't and issue I would keep buying them. Fantastic tire for the true sports car enthusiast!
