Tire Pros

Grate upgrade for performance oriented drivers.

Tire Cons

The profile view looks plain, if your big into wheel/stance.

These tires replaced the factory set on my VW MK5 R32. From day one I notice a significant decrease in road noise, however its not like its totally gone (its a hatch). From the performance aspect, it greatly improve taking corners, it almost feel like the Haldex has to work less to achieve the same level of performance.

Tire Pros

Precise, linear and predictable. Quick turn in. Minimizes understeer. Rides beautifully.

Tire Cons

None.

This is a lovely tire and a delight to drive. I am coming from Toyo Proxes T1Rs, which are good tires but not in the same league as these Michelins. I am most impressed with their precision and linear directness., The Toyos, in contrast, seemed to understeer to keep the driver out of trouble. They would seem to scrub. The Super Sports in contrast, turn in directly with no fuss and maintain the line that you as the driver establish. You need to keep on your toes, but the reward is well worth the concentration expended. Most highly recommended, and thoroughly appreciated on my suspension modified R32. This is the street performance tire for me, hands down.

WOW what a difference from the bridgestone runflats. Felt the difference right away. I researched for about a month on tires. I am very happy I went with these super sport tires. Incrediable grip , alot smoother on highway, You can feel the responsiveness of the tires in a turn. very little spin on take off for faster 0-60 times pushing 343 hp and 371 ftq to the wheels. Highly recommend for sport sedan luxury cars who like to push there car on the weekend. Tire holds well for daily driving as well.

Great tires. Michelin is a fantastic brand and with these tires the company positions itself once again as a trusted and guaranteed brand. If you are looking for a tire with exceptional grip for spirited driving this is the one. Not sure how they would perform at the track since I hadn't got a chance to go but I am sure they will meet expectations.

These tires are much better than the Bridgestone run flats that came w/ my 2011 BMW 335i Sport. They have transformed the car into a luxury cruiser while improving the already great handling and braking.
