I'm getting new rims and face the following choice:
1) Get Hankooks for $1000USD
2) Get Michelin PSS for $2000USD

Both prices include full installation, balancing, and alignment, and represent a competitive price in the Taiwan market.

I really can't decide if there is enough value in the Michelins to justify their 100% price difference. The $1000 does matter to me...I'd rather keep it in the bank, but I'm not going to be going without dinner if I do spend it on the tires. Thoughts and suggestions?
For my 18 inch

V12 is $800
PSS. $1200

I'm on PSS currently

Went to 5/32 in 7-8 k

Might get warranty replacement
