Tires

I had the new Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires put on yesterday. Originally had the pZeros. The new tires are very sticky yet smooth. They seem more responsive and quicker to react than the previous tires.

I'll repost after my road trip this weekend.

I had the PS2 ,and now the PSS ( incredible grip !! )

I noticed the road noise is a bit deeper (more bass) than the pZero tires.

Make sure that the tires are broken in before you explore the limits of adhesion. The release agent used during the molding process can take a couple hundred miles to wear off.

Oh. Thanks for that advice. I'm driving 250 miles today so I'll keep it easy.

Well, I've put 600 miles on the new tires and am very pleased. They have fantastic traction and just stick to the ground. Only drawback is when you are on a road with grooves the tires tend to want to follow the grooves. I also thick that is why they are so sticky - deep tread. Great tires.
