Outstanding tire, all-around. Superlatives are too few. Better than the PS2! Better handling, braking and comfort. Wow. If these last longer and realize more mpg, what a prize. Get's my vote for category crown.
I bought these a couple weeks ago, and they're everything people cracked them up to be! They are the perfect tire for anybody looking for that half step down from full slicks, while still maintaining that quiet and fuel efficient expectation we all have for a daily driver. I've had passengers in the car that notice the difference too, but around corners you can really feel that sidewall being reinforced and designed for those high speed maneuvers. The stock tires on my Golf R were grippy but the you could feel the sidewall start to let go at high G's and that made you lose confidence. These are the most amazing tire for the summers!
I have driven every top performance tire out there over the past 20 years and the pilot super sport tires are hands down the best tire ever. I have a set of super sports on my Audi R8, when I push the turns very aggressively, I feel totally safe and confident at max G forces, not even a chirp from my pilot sports.
I have rented several Audi R8's on the tracks in Vegas, and the R8's with pilot super sports were hands down far superior to all the other top brands for grip, handling, and braking.
Keep you and your family safe, use Super pilot sports to avoid the craziness out there.
Bought a full set around 9 months ago. I have 15 mile roundtrip commute 4 days a week and have only been out of town twice (less then 600 miles total). My rear tires have lost ALL there tread down to the wire. My mechanic looked over my vehicle for any mechanical issues that could have caused this and there are none. The tires look like a teenager has been peeling out/ burning rubber with them. I had them replaced with a completely different brand of tires. I am very disappointed, especially since my Michelin tires that I had before lasted me 3 years!
First off, I buy and have bought tires from other manufacturers, but I always come back to Michelins... They always have the most consistent wear patterns and dependable grip across all conditions. I use them on my motorcycles where they have literally saved my life and on all my vehicles, to trucks, and our two Tesla Model S'. This review is for the cars, which weigh in a a hulking 4825 and 4945 lbs a piece!!! The Michelin Pilot Super Sports shouldn't be able to carry that kind of load, but they do it easily. We use the power of the electric motors and the rear tires show the burden of that power, but it's not the tires fault. Love them!
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.
