Anyone bought PSS tires recently?

I am probably going to get a set of Michelin PSS this year for both street and track, because I'll be tracking mostly/only in April-May, so the weather is likely to be cool. I'm done sporting AD-08s in near-freezing temps - it's although entertaining (to others), but gets tiring fast.

Anyone bought PSS this season? who has the best prices?

Last time the best option was shipping from discounttiredirect in US, but this year they have crazy expensive shipping, so might no longer be the best option.

Go to Tires23. I've bought my last three sets of PSS from them.

my friend on the forums is selling tires under my own company in the e90post forums. PSS are popular option, and I believe he will get you the best price. His user name on the forums is project335i

I've always bought from Billy at Tires23. The prices are competitive and the service is good. Admittedly I could probably shop around more but they've always been good to me.

edit, ot, sawzall, did you used to be shizzle?

I think I met you very briefly when you had your car in for detailing/clear film. I was there for a quote and was admiring your 991.

Power tools are way more fun than computers! If I had any skills, I would have become a contractor instead of a tech. consultant.

Cool! Did you end up using Marco and Kevin? I've got to find an excuse to drop by their shop and bug them.

I wouldn't track PSS. They don't hold up well at track temps.

I did. Well, I got Kevin to detail it (it looks unreal, the previous owner didn't take great care of it). He put a coating on it that makes it stupid easy to take care of (which is good for me haha... kids!). My front end is a little too far gone for a clear bra. I am thinking of painting it but I am going to wait until after this season since I want to go to the track.

Your car looked amazing. I love the color.

Thanks! And I saw that you subscribed to the track day thread. Hopefully we'll meet at the track sometime!

I recommend tires23 as well, Billy is great and their (domestic) price can't be beat. I shopped around, trust me. Closest price was Northside auto on mavis rd. Great shop too, but tires23 is bigger & can store your stuff.

rogers08 Kevin & Marco will detail & wrap your car like baoses. Go there! I continue to!

Oh I know it. I was back at their shop last week for a quick wash from kevin. I wish my front end was worthy of film so marco could do it but it's too beat up. I may repaint it in the spring. he was working on a gt3rs that looked amazing.

Ya I had mine resprayed (free!) cuz Budd's did a bad job for the guy who had it before me. Then I got it opticoated & clear bra'd all at once. Totally worth it. Will probably go back and get the hood & side fenders done too.
Was it an orange gt3rs? I saw it on the 401 once and I think it lives in my neighbourhood! Want to track it down, looks so gooooood.

Simply Tire is great too, they are at Finch & Keele. Great service and they will usually beat Tires23 on price, at least they did when I got my PSS set from them.

I was just there today to get a big nail taken out of one..

i just bought from Beechmotorworks in Hamilton but only because i live around the corner.

the guys here are great though. they've done 6 tires for me in the last month or so and havent put a single scratch in my wheels. service and prices here are top of the line and the owners / manager's all drive BMWs

No this was a grey one with red wheels. I didnt even know you could wrap the entire hood and fenders so no line but he was doing it on this gt3 and it looked insane.
