Default Re: PSS, They have arrived!

I've had my Pilot Super Sports on for a few days now. I've only driven freeway and have not had a chance to really beat on em yet. They track perfect and BEST part is how much more reasonable money wise they are.

I've only run PS2's on my E39 VF charged 540. Had the M3 for only two months so it will be hard to compare. My tire installer said the tread pattern has less gaps and more tire patch than the PS2 so they should grip better.

Just got them mounted yesterday

The 275 are almost identical In size compare to 285 in the toyo t1r

Only drove a fee km yesterday to see how they feel..
The first 5 mins of driving the tires were pretty noisy, and after it quieted down.

Took a on ramp at a decent speed, feel pretty stable

I will report back in when I put more km on

Overall diameter or the width? I find some 265 semi slicks are the same width as 285 street rubber.

Getting them mounted and balanced at the Porsche dealer tomorrow. The BMW dealer here is a bit too notorious for scratching rims when they install the tires.

Not to steal the thread or anything..But has anyone tried running the Nitto Invo Tires. The only sport tires i have ever ran are Nitto 555R Drag Radials On my 2002 Ford Lightning...but thats a drag radial. I love the look of the INVO tire and from there readings on the website it looks like its a great tire..just dont know how they compare to say the PS2 or PSS tires

Have driven them for 200 miles so far and all I can say is that these tires live up to their hype!

It has been raining a bit here and there and irregardless of what the condition the grip on these tires is simply amazing. Cornering feels absurdly precise!

My only gripe with them so far is that when I go over gravel etc. it seems to be picking it up and throwing the gravel about. But apart from that these tires are dead quiet, they stop the car in a very predictable manner, they look like racing slicks and they might as well be.

These tires are definitely worth it!
