My tire shop stopped offering the 245&265/35R19 Cup+ and I don't see it on Michelin's Europe website either. I'm hoping they don't discontinue this size yet, as it was significantly better than the PS2 in the dry.
I don't know if it's worth it going out of my way to get the PS Cup+ over the PSS. Treadwear, value for money or other such factors are not relevant to me, good grip is, and of course that it is a street tire that can handle some rain, which the PS Cup+ did beautifully for me.
P.S.: Are the PSS noisy when they spin? I had to put some almost new PS2s on the rear and they squeal quite obnoxiously when I get some wheelspin from a standstill. I had forgotten about that feature of the PS2 while on the Cup+.
I don't see how you can compare the PSS to the Sport Cup; street tire vs. R-comp. The SC will be better in every handling category, but unsuitable for daily driving (for most people).
