So i prefer to invest a few hunderd Dollars(in my case Euro's) more in
a good tire...and i can read tires tests !!!
And think.... also about how many costs a accident with a ///M3 ???
Not to mention that an accident can be fatal due to a poor tire choise !!
That's why.....i am not agreed !!!
I don't really see what any of this has to do with making the choice between PSS and a cheaper max performance summer tire like the Hankook V12s.

I don't have any experience with the Vredsteins but I do have the Hankooks. If you are genuinely looking for best $/mile without completely sacrificing performance I think there are cheaper choices than the PSS. Given the PSS will likely be a more comfortable ride and is a superior tire. Hopefully they last longer than the PS2s. I know the tread rating is higher. Not sure if they last as long as the V12s (or maybe they last even longer). The tread rating measurements aren't exactly equal across manufacturers so it's hard to tell.

Can anyone who has had both PS2s and PSS comment on tread life?
