Default Re: NASIOC specific tire review (please respond)

please answer these questions

#1.) what tire are you offering for review (please include size)

Michelin Pilot Sport, 225/40/18


#2.) what is your geographic location

Braselton, GA (50 miles north of Atlanta)


#3.) what types of driving events if any (i.e. track, AutoX, RallyX)

I do ~10 track days/HPDE a year, no other events


#4.) percent of highway vs. city driving

20 percent highway, 80 percent city


#5.) your review and personal comments

The Pilot Sports are an incredible tire, although they also expensive relative to some others in 'the same' category. I agree with GravelRash that it would be hard to find a match for the Pilot Sports for an ultra high performance summer tire. I have lapped Road Atlanta hundreds of times in the dry on these tires and they just continue to impress me with their overall grip level, progressive feedback, and manners. I have also lapped RA dozens of times in the wet, and I use them as my rain tires for the track on a full time basis. Again, I have nothing but good to say about them. If I had to buy tires again, I would buy these, no questions asked...even if they ARE a little more than some.
