Default Michelin Primacy MXM4's any good for WRX?

Need to replace my tires tomorrow as I found the inside tread down to the secondary rubber and going on the dyno tuesday... anyone have experience with these tires? Would rather get a second set of pilot super-sports but they'd arrive later than needed...

What do you need from your tires?
All season? Summer?

great ride quality with low road noise but, if you are an aggressive driver they aren't really a strong performer

Was looking for summers, just had a dumbass helping a dumbass (me) at Big O yesterday. The guy this morning was much better, he was able to find some Michelin pilot super sports for me, so those will be goin back on again!

Thanks Luke, have really like the Pilot SS but are there other tires of similar performance and longer tread life you'd recommend for Az (for next time)?

The PSS is, I believe, the only tire in its category that even offers a tread wear warranty, which says quite a bit about how long the manufacturers think their ultra high or max performance summer tires will last. You're probably not going to get more mileage out of other tires.

With that said, if you wore the tires out on the inside edge then you have an alignment problem. Get a proper alignment and your tires will last longer, whether they are PSSs or something else.

Good, glad I kept at it about those tires then (feels SO much better now...).
Also had the alignment done when they threw them on. Sadly didnt get what the it was before they took the old wheels off, would have been curious. Got 35k out of em, not sad about that considering the stockers only gave me 23...

I have mxm4s on my 2002 Acura TL. Very soft comfortable ride and good wear. As Luke said not much performance.
