Not really a fair comparison, since the Conti competes with the PS2, and the PSS is a newer better tire. I was disappointed to get the Conti instead of PS2s, but they haven't been that bad. Yeah, Michelin's pricing strategy is funny, I guess charge less on a better tire to get people hooked, or maybe keep people paying top dollar for a last gen tire whose development costs are already fully amortized. Anyway, hopefully I can replace my Contis with PSS tires before Michelin starts jacking the price up.
