By the looks of it 1lb lighter in the sizes I want too!
Wow, they're pretty light, indeed! The fronts I'm going to run on the wagon are 20 lbs/tire!

I might order two sets (for two cars) to justify going to pick them up instead of paying for shipping

18s are finally released as of last week. YMMV depending on your tire shop supplier.

I just bought 265/35/18 for my square 18s. Waiting for my alignment before I go to the canyons. Can't wait

I wish, 20lbs would be so nice. Iím just glad I can save a little weight off the PSS. Better tire, lighter, plus new cool lettering. How can you go wrong?

The fronts looks really beefy?!? More than PSS.

One weird thing I noticed going from PSS to PSS was the rear stretch on the second set looked way less. (Maybe it was because they were worn?).

Thanks for your post OP - I was very interested in the look.

Michelins are number 1 in my book, but being on top of maintenance is just as important, choose your parts wisely
Different strokes for different folks but tires are the only thing between a car and the road. I'd rather not choose to skimp in that area.

I'm not saying the Continentals are better than the Michelins, but I'd hardly call them skimping.
