Michelin Pilot Super Sport
Initial Review: 1,000 miles on tires
November 15, 2011

These are my 11th set of tires on this 8 year old car. My previous set was Yokahama Advan Neova AD07s. The Michelin Pilot SS tires have a 300 treadwear rating vs. the Yok's 180. That with the dry test track results were my primary reason, along with low cost, to buy these tires. Grip is good. I have yet to find the cornering limits. I would rate at least equal to the AD07s. Ride is very smooth and predictability very good - even with my worn struts and somewhat underdamped HR coil overs. Turn in is not as responsive as the AD07s and I get traction control kicking in easier on rough surfaces, so I think braking traction is not quite as good. All in all, very good performance for a long lasting, relatively inexpensive tire.
