Full Disclosure: I am a Michelin brand ambassador and have been provided products and training. I purchased these tires on my own and my opinions in this review are 100% genuine.
Five years ago Michelin unveiled the Pilot Super Sport max performance tire (referred to as the PSS) to replace the Pilot Sport (PS2) and immediately raised the benchmark for street performance tires. Michelin engineers had done their homework and produced a tire that improved upon its predecessor in every way.
The PS2 was already a really good tire, it unfortunately performed a little too much like a race tire as it didn’t last long and cost quite a bit. Michelin claimed that the PSS had improved treadwear, performed better in dry and wet conditions, had faster steering response, and they even cost less!
