C4S tires

Recommended Posts

With 17k on the odometer, I need to replace the tires on my C4S due to age cracks. Would appreciate any thoughts on the various types available. The car is lightly driven and wear and quietness are more important than performance handling.

You might want to try the new Michelin Pilot "Sports".. They look identical to the 'cup" tire I have several friends who recently bought them and are very happy. They are less expensive than the other Michelins, are quiet, have great grip and they wear much better. Michelin claims up to 30% more wear..

I'm not sure if they make a size for your car though..

I use Michelin Pilot Sport PS2s on my 996 C4S. They are fantastic.

Michelin just released a new tire called the Pilot Super Sport. They are getting good reviews, but they aren't available in the proper sizes for the 996 C4S. You might check them and see if they are available in the sizes you need.

Thanks, Dennis. Think I might have had the same Pilot Sports on my 996 Carrera and I agree, they were great.
