Testing Max Performance Summer Tires

I recently tested the following Max Performance Summer tires on our test track and on the street:

Michelin Pilot Sport PS2              Continental ExtremeContactDW
michelin ps2  Continental ExtremeContactDW
Kumho Ecsta LE Sport               Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric
Kumho Ecsta LE Sport  Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric
I felt the Michelin came out on top on our Real World Road Ride and Performance Test Track Drive.  It had the best combination of cornering, braking ability, steering response and ride quality. The Kumho and Continental were also very good and very close with similar ride and handling characteristics.  Lastly, the Goodyear just didn't have the ride quality and performance level of the other three.  

Official results will be online soon but here is more information on our testing program.
