Tire Pros

Handling, dry grip, progressive break away, noise

Tire Cons

Nothing yet

The car came with Porsche spec Pirelli P-Zeros. These Super Sports are better in every category. The main things being better grip and feel. And when they do break away, it's a smooth progressive drift. The Pirellis would do a slip-grab-slip dance that did not inspire confidence. I haven't tried another brand. But compared to the Pirelli, these Super Sports not only handle and feel better, they are quieter, have a better ride and were less expensive. I couldn't be happier.

Tire Pros

The grip around tight corners is pretty decent.

Tire Cons

The tires are very loud and the ride comfort is poor.

These tires are a lot louder than the Toyo Proxy 4 tires I normally use. I think the Michelin's tread will last longer than the Toyo's, but ride comfort and road noise reduction are more important to me.
