The PSS's have been shown to have better handling, braking, and wet performance than the PS2. They are a summer tires, has it been colder than normal in your area since you got them? Where your PS2's run-flats?
Past two months, 70 to 80's degrees. I didn't know PS2 come in runflats?! My PS2 were original equipment and are not runflats. In any regards, performance wise, PSS skips and wiggles under spirited high speed turns where the PS2s were very planted in the same corners and roads the I travel on for the three years I've owned my car.
