i dunno if the performance aspect of the "RE050A II rft" improved over the original RE050A rft's, but i do know that the michelin super sports are one of the BEST street tires i've ever owned.

The RE050A II RFT came out a couple of years ago and is just slightly softer riding than the original RE050A RFT. +1 in regards the positive commends on the Pilot Super Sport.
