Michelin Pilot Super Sports fitted..

Postby Knobby » Thu Apr 04, 2013 4:56 am

Hello

Just had Michelin Pilot Super Sports fitted as recommended by another user from another forum. Can't really review them yet as the are only just on the car.

They certainly take a few miles to scrub in, done about 50 miles on them so far and the ESP light is coming on frequently :)

What tyre pressures are you running? I was running standard pressures on my Conti's and looking at the front tyres they looked over inflated by how they have worn as the centers were right down to 1mm but the edge of the tyres still plenty of life. Still got over 10k on the first set of tyres which I was pleased with.

Cheers

Dave

So far so good. I do feel the ESP light is coming on more. Perhaps I need to turn that off. Not had a massive chance to test them out yet.
