Summary: I drive a 2007 Corvette Z06 , 600 HP at rear wheels . Michelin Super Sport tires keep me on the streets . I live in Florida , rain and hot weather . I drive hard . These tires handle great in the turns , very good braking , good tire wear after 13,000 miles . I will buy Michelin Tires for all my cars . Thanks Michelin , Good job!
Summary: We chose the Pilot Super Sport tires based on the sales reps recommendation and our good experience with Michelin's in the past. The original tires on our 2012 G37 were very noisy, rough riding and pulled left or right with steering wheel input. The new Super Sports are extremely quiet and smooth riding (for a high performance tire) and have exceptional grip! While these tires are new, we are confident that we will enjoy them.
Summary: I just purchased a pre-owned 2006 Acura TL last year, but it needed new tires asap. After doing some research on-line I found several performance tests of the Super Sport, so I figured I would give them a try. I will say that the dry weather performance is outstanding and the wet weather performance is just as impressive (Wet get a lot of rain here in Florida!). The only downside is the wear. With less than 20K miles I had to replace my tires.
Summary: Had this put on my 2010 Corvette Grand Sport and man what a difference! The original tires were the worst tires I have ever owned in that whenever they hit an imperfection, or a grove in the road, it would slam you to that side. With these tires the car feels like a completely different car, great ride and no pulling to one side or the other. I was going to sale my car but now I'm keeping it!
Summary: Great tire. Grips excellent. Predictable behavior when you want to get the rear end to slide. Quiet tire. Really great in the wet! There is literally no reason (I know of) to buy another tire if you have a higher performance car that you need to perform on the street and track.
Summary: I have had several sets of 265/35 ZR19 Pilot Sports on a stock powerplant MB 350CLK and only got less than 9K miles off the rear tires twice before having to replace them. Have autocrossed and raced Porsches & Formula Mazdas in SCCA and have some experience with tires. Just a caution for a street tire on a stock car that was never even pushed they seemed to soft of a compound for street use.
Summary: I put four new super sports on my audi S5 and they are awesome. They were not the cheapest or the most expensive option but I very content with my purchase. They really grip the road have outstanding traction rain or shine. My car seems to like them as well. I have no issues in the first 6 months of driving on them.
Summary: Expected more but a great tire in the dry and wet. I am amazed at how well it does with both. The comfort is way below the rating Michelin gives in my opinion. It has been the most harsh tire I have had so far comparing to other summer sport tires in its class. Besides the comfort level everything is amazing and also the tread life compared to others in its class, seems to last around 50% longer than tires that are just as good performers in the dry.
