Heard that the Michelin Super Sports were specifically developed for the 458 Italia. Switched from Bridgestones which were not bad, but the SS are way better. These tires allow you to track the car all day at Daytona or Road America where you are hitting 190 and above and then drive home like you are in a Lexus. When you first put them on there is a very noticeable effect in the feel of the car. It is like you just got in the car for the first time. And I have 3000 miles on them and about half of those are track miles, they look like they can go another 3000 miles, but I will probably get a new set for summer driving and keep this set for the track. These are definitely the best tires I have used on any of my cars.
