Oh wow - didn't realize there was another new Michelin

Will need new rubber on the 39 soon and these will be top of the list. Are these supposed to be a bit better in wet and maybe give up some absolute dry performance vs PSS?

I would be surprised if these are inferior to the PSS in any single category. Don't know why they would be.

Wasn't there a PS3 alongside the PSS that was slightly more comfort and wet traction-oriented? And PSS was the more all-out dry performance tire that sacrificed some ride / wear (although mine lasted forever on the 46). Figured that may be the case here.

The PSS and 4S are max performance summer tires. The 4S is the direct replacement for the PSS.

Edit: Sorry, I think you were talking about the PS3, which usually gets no mention and wasn't really marketed alongside the PSS. Also, not sure it was a better tire than the PSS is any way. Could be wrong, though.

The PS4S is a marginal improvement over the MPSS. They are primarily an improvement in wet conditions. AFAIK, they are also a slight improvement in the dry due to a new compound being used. One of the biggest improvements is in tread life, as they are said to last an extremely long time (Michelin stated 40,000 miles in their own launch or something similar, so take it with a grain of salt). So if you're the type that doesn't need grippy tyres for the track, then the PS4S will serve you well.

That being said, they are not worth choosing over the MPSS if you have a set on now.

I completely agree, my first and only experience with the P-Zero's are on my turbo and it's just terrible! I've been lucky enough to have Michelins on all of my M's. And like you, there's plenty of tread left... Although on a positive note (?) the P-Zero N1 compound is supposed to be an improvement (from complete garbage).

PS2 = 13m miles. Wow. Be interested to see where this ends up in the rankings after a few hundred thousand miles are reported.

Never had PSS before, they are on order for the e90 now, but I have had a few sets of PS2's and they were unreal tires. Tread wear could have been a bit better but far and away the stickiest. Obviously zero grip in the snow though, in case anyone was wondering haha. I had Prius's passing me so I sped up a hair and spun out in my Subaru. It was like being on an ice rink, naturally.
