    Mich Pilot PS4S

    Just got my new Michilin Pilot Sport 4S' installed and man are they great!! I went up a size in the front and back on the stock wheels and I can see why that was a factory option. So much better fit IMO. Went with 245's up front and 305's out back. zxThese tires are light years better than the Conti's that were on it!

    I just got back from Exotics Racing in Las Vegas. They run PS4S on all of their cars. Good grip, easy to control at the edge and beyond, and they sing when sliding. The instructors seemed happy with them.

    you can even go to 255 front, cures all the understeer :-)
    expect you had the 5P Conti, the Conti Sport Contact 6 is on the same level then PS4S. Both are very good tyres, in 19" the PS4S is a tiny better and in 20" the Conti 6 is. Both the way to go on R8.

    The PS4S are great all around tires. Good grip, really forgiving at the limit (with plenty of non-shrieky audible feedback when you approach it), and excellent rain characteristics (for an ultra-high performance summer tire). I use them as my wet track day setup, 245's in the front and 305's in the rear.

    My biggest complaint is that they need a lot of camber. Even with close to -2.0 degrees of camber in the front, I'll wear down the outer inch of tread to the cords, and still have nearly full tread on the inside blocks. With the asymmetric tread pattern, you can't rotate or flip them, either, so when they're done, they're done, and you're throwing away a lot of perfectly good rubber.
