Default Michelin Pilot 4S

For those interested in what OEM tire sizing looks like, I had some mounted today. They have a nice fat slightly stretched look which is a great. Haven't tested it fully yet, but the tires are quiet! I'm coming from Continental DWS 06 which only lasted me 15K miles.

There's a rebate going on right now, plus Discount Tire price matches so this saved me about 200 . I ended up paying 910 total after rebate.

Yep, the Michelins in OEM sizes give an ultra beefy look with tall sidewalls and fat rim protectors.

I'm curious how the 4S rides compared to the PSS but I doubt anyone has run two fresh sets back to back.

It depends, but most tires will get between 15-20k miles on average with these sizes.

Looks good. This tire seems to get universal praise.

I can tell you that the 4s rides signficantly better than before. My friend had 275/30/19 square setup on his zcp wheels.

I'm in the process of setting up a square 18" set with Alpin 4s for the Michigan winter (thanks Dr M3 Man!); I drove 5,000 miles on PS4s before snow started. I'm looking forward to gauging the difference.

My PS4s are on 19" staggered wheels. I loved them compared to the cheap tires the previous owner had just put on mine (which I drove for 10,000 miles - they were brand new).

For a car 90% street driven I think Michelin PSS or 4s are over rated, especially where there isn't much rain. Continentals Extreme Contact Sport are supposedly up there in ratings with PSS for cheaper and I know tires are not the best place to cheap out on, but Contis been in the tire game a long time and it's the brand that our cars came with from the factory.
Michelins are number 1 in my book, but being on top of maintenance is just as important, choose your parts wisely
