Tire Durability caution
4 weeks ago
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.
Summary: After only 80miles of having the Michelin Super Sport tires on my RX8. I had a rare chance of having a "battle" with a Gen 2 911 GT3 on some amazing back roads in WV. Long story short, at the end, I was flagged down by the guys on the GT3 to tell me what an awesome battle we had.
Summary: This is the very best street tire ever made. Wet or dry, there is no street tire which sticks better, is more perfectly round, or wears more evenly. Do not expect 30k miles: I get about 15k miles. I do not do burnouts or other silly things. I am a racer, and an instructor of road racing and high performance driving, and have done these things for many decades. I'm also a certified master tech...and I know tires VERY well.
Summary: First of all in my everyday commute these tires are more than up to the task as they are much quieter than the OEM tires on my Subaru WRX Sti. They track beautifully and there is absolutely no wandering on the road with these babies. Just standing still they have a presence of awesomeness with the checkered flag so neatly placed on the sidewall. Yes these truly deserve the word "Super" in front of them and so many products dont these days.
Summary: This is my second set of Pilot Super Sports for my 2004 Mini CooperS. The car has 140,000 miles on her and has gone through a large number of tires. The best life I've been able to get from a set was ~25k miles until I got the Super Sports. The handling, ride, noise and performance is great! This is the best set of tires I've had on this car. Bonus: I replaced the last set after 35k miles!
Summary: I am a true fan of michelin and always use on my high performance vehicle as well as sedan and SUV. The OEM's on my car were subpar. I could not wait to pul them off with full tread for the best of the best.
Summary: I am on my second set of these on my Audi Avant (255/35/19) and am very impressed. They are incredibly durable and when I do track days in the rain I leave these on and they have performed very well for a street tire. The only problem I ever encountered was at a two day track event where I expected rain and instead encountered 90-100+ temps.
