Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres now available

I received an email today from Michelin. The M3 specific tyres for 19" fitment are now available for the PSS tyre.

As per the latest BMW Car Mag - the new tyre offers increased performance and durability over the PS2 it replaces. Better wet and dry grip and longer lasting all for the same price as the old PS2.

I'll be changing mine to these when due.

Im assuming this is in the UK only? I called Michelin last week, they said they have no release date on file for the tires, and no list of sizes yet from factory.

Any more info would be great. I would love to contact whoever emailed you. I need tires now and want the new PSS not Ps2's...

Thanks

Here is the web site link http://www.michelin.co.uk/tyres/mich...true&width=265

At the bottom of the page is a 'contact' point. You can click on there and ask a question, which is what I did.

Yup, Super Sports are here in Australia now too.

Rang my service manager today to enquire if they could get me some
295/30/19's to try on my zcp wheels, and he told me they were out of
stock on PS2's but had stock of Super Sports if I wanted to try them.

One other bit of info.... they were $100 cheaper than the PS2'2. Although
that's not saying too much since the prices are so inflated here in Aus.
Quoted me $850 each for the rears

Cheers,

Your link directs me to Pilot Sport?

Are those the PSS tyre you referring to?

No. The link was just for the contact details.

Forgot to mention. Performance COTY has a big write up from Michelin (they sponsored the event) and the improvements of the Pilot Super Sport over it's predecessor the PS2.
