Baby needs new shoes... pilot super sport vs pilot sport ps2

Ready to replace my current tires, thinking of new Michelins. Any comments regarding performance/tire life for the Pilot Super Sport vs. the Pilot Sport PS2? Other recommendations welcome!

Thanks,

Jim

Hey, at least I got it in the right section! 😊

I think I'm going to go SS all around. Store has em in stock, and I need them now, found a sidewall bubble on LF and chunk of sidewall out of LR. Atlanta is tough on tires!

I have PSS on my car and they are excellent. With a stock 55 you won't spin much any more. I am running 255 in the rear also, they fit perfectly. If you go larger I would roll the rear fenders.
