Michelin Pilot Super Sport
Initial Review: 4,200 miles on tires
August 15, 2012

Bought this tire for good/warm weather use with the expectation of needing added traction with an upgrade from stock (200 WHP) to K04 and supporting mods (310 WHP). The Super Sports did an excellent job while I was stock and were a significant upgrade compared to the Pirelli P Zero Neros the car came with. Now that I've gone to the K04 and supporting mods, I can say that the Super Sports still provide superior traction and I've only chirped the tires once so far. Very pleased with these tires. They are a little bit louder, but not a significant concern. I'm more curious about tread life. I only have 4200 miles on them so far, so getting ready to rotate. We'll see how long they last...
