The PSS is a tire well worth the price. I have a modified MINI Cooper S that I took to The Dragon this year, and the tires earned their keep. Super sticky in the corners yet firm enough to prevent any hint of body roll. I was a tad hesitant when purchasing the tires last year because of the price, but they're worth every penny and proved their value on the Dragon, Hellbender, and other pure driver's roads in NC/TN. SO glad I had them thru wicked switchbacks with a rock wall on one side and a severe drop-off on the other. My nerves gave out before the tires did.

The PSS has also proved to be solid in the wet. Year-round life in Florida includes torrential summer storms, but these tires have yet to hydroplane or get squirrelly on me.

These tires are also very quiet and offer a pleasant ride for a performance tire. Face it: if dry & wet handling are top priorities, you'll probably be willing to give a little on the ride quality, especially if you've invested in a performance suspension.

All around the Pilot Super Sport is a superior tire. Would not hesitate to recommend it to others or buy again myself.
