So much better ride?

Summary: A great ride. Soft, quiet, gooey, different than what I had. It's a 08-Z06, so it's hard core. This seems to be what I needed all along since I am an old guy looking for the best ride. I use the car as a grand sport and we travel all over the US. The best is; day two with the new tires and I run over a screw, the screw penetrates the rib on the tire tread and does not get by the casing/inner liner. The windows are down and I hear it! CLICK CLICK CLICK and I stop.
Summary: Took 12 days to receive (2) 245/40r18. Wrong tires sent with no urgency to fix MICHELIN mistake. Retailer tried to put a bandaid on a delinquent problem. Will go else where for future Tires every year when purchased. Nice tire though.
Summary: Bought these Super Sport tires for my 2008 Cadillac CTS to replace the original Pilot tires. Absolute love these tires!! They stick to the road like glue, I baven't been able to get them to break loose yet and I have been trying. I don't see myself buying another brand or type of tire for any of my sports cars ever again.
Summary: Just up graded my tires to 18 inch Michelin Pilot Super Sport. The same tires on my Z06 Corvette . Very happy with this tire on all my cars . I drive hard . My Honda Accord EX-L Touring Sedan came with 17 inch Michelins . I wanted more meat on the street , went to 18x8 wheels with the Super Sport tires . Better grip in turns and braking . Off to Road Atlanta to break in the new tires . Thanks Michelin ! Another great job .
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.
