    Default Michelin Pilot Sport 4S (PS4S)

    Initial launch it was introduced to the European market. I believe it will be available for North America in March.

    This tire will replace the PSS with increased overall performance and tread life.

    Pretty much PSS 2.0?

    Looking forward to replace my SC2's that came with the car with PSS or these. Wish I get to experience the PSS first though

    Looks very promising. What is it 30k miles warranty or something?

    That's what they claim on paper.. Never got close to those numbers even on PSS. Tire-Rack is taking pre-orders right now. Seems like the increase from PSS to P4S is about 35 USD or so, not bad at all.

    The guy in the video really knows his material, he has to be an automotive engineer. His car reviews are solid, discusses advanced points far beyond the usual knowledge one gets in reviews. Been a subscriber for months now.

    Looks like he is a Test Engineer - Powertrain Development

    PSS were really good high performance street tires, and I always found them to be pretty quiet and wear evenly as well.

    I might be getting at set of these with my new wheel set in May.

    Really hoping they are better than the PSS tho.

    I need to keep a car long enough to burn through the tires so I can try a set of these.

    Rumor is that these have initiated a PSC2 redesign as the PS4S dry performance was "too close"

    Just checked tire rack and my sizes aren't available

    There is seriously like 1 size for 18's and I'm pretty sure that size rubs on the fronts with my car.

    Love my PSS. Unfortunate they don't offer these in 17".
    I just want my car to look good, my bitch to look better, and my wallet to be fat, not flat...

    Wow, I wouldn't doubt it.

    Just means more lap times to be broken when they're released.
