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

To sum it all up: Buy these tires. I've driven a 3.8 Genesis Coupe with both PS2's and PS3's, and after having seen how grippy the PS2's are I went for the PSS's seeing as how they are the upgrade. In wet conditions, I never had issues going around a corner at higher speeds than average, commuting, or even driving in pouring storms (literally). In dry weather, they grip like melting butter. After I had them mounted/aligned, I immediately felt that they were very sticky and planted, this being even before the break-in period. At high speeds (ahem), turning was no issue, and it felt like you were actually going the speed limit. I do want to chime on colder conditions since I see that's a concern of many; these tires do absolutely fine in cold conditions. I had to drive 3 hours in 30-35 degrees in the early morning (Thanksgiving commute), I didn't slip once or lose traction, and I was driving a bit above the limit but kept it down because of the conditions. Attribute bad driving to those reviews! I just bought a set of new wheels and again purchased the PSS's. Only downside is sizing (Michelin, please make some 275/40/18's, thanks), but other than that, you will not be disappointed.
