Thinking about replacing my Vredestein Sessentas with Michelin Pilot Sport Cups. I heard they are great in dry conditions but kind of scary in wet. Although we get maybe 20 days a year of rain here in Vegas so maybe I'll take the plunge! Give me some feedback please!!
Really expensive to run pilot cups so unless you really really want top dry weather grip then leave it, also once you have tried them its hard to go back. I would say michelin pilot 2 seeing you have little rain, UK is the other way round so I recommend and run goodyear assymetric f1.
Have you considered the Michelin PS2 (Pilot Sport 2) tires? They are not as sticky as the ones you're considering, but they work reasonably well in the rain, provide a quiet and comfortable ride and they provide a good amount of lateral grip. Oh yeah... and they'll last a lot longer.
