Michelin Pilot Supersport Tyres

Has anyone had experience of these in 19inch size? I need to replace my Continental 5ps and fancied a change? On paper they look hard to split? Cheers

I run these on mine in the form of 275/30/19. On my 2nd set now and the performance is excellent especially in the dry and they seem to wear good too

All I've heard is people raving about them - haven't seen a single negative comment!

I'll be treating myself to a full set of them when my winter wheels are due to come off. I can't wait, it's going to be such a difference going from winters to some of the best summer tyres around

From what i've read, the Goodyear eagle F1 asymmetric 2 outperform the PSS in pretty much every aspect.
These are the tires i'll be fitting in the near future.

Maybe you need wheel alignment if inner tyres are wearing as bumps and potholes knock it out of place but as for tyre pressures im running on 39psi front and 42 psi rears on a 235/265 combo seems to work perfect for me!

yeah, i am haha i was annoyed with cracking wheels so i up the profile in the rear hoping it makes it safer. i knew that speedo reading will be different but can it really effect the tires like that?

I had my alignment done in may after lowering springs change and then back in October just to be safe.

my new rear set coming is 265 /30 /19 !! so need pressure for that!!
