Michelin Pilot Sport A/S

Recommended Posts

I was looking at the specs for the Regular Sport Vs. The Sport A/S Vs. the Sport PS2 and it seems that the A/S is the better overall tire for combined dry/wet driving. My Boxster S is a "daily driver" for me. Here are the stats on the tire according to the company.

Pilot® Sport A/S

Tread life 8

Wet traction 10

Quiet ride 7

Handling 9

Winter traction 9

Mud Traction N/A

Pilot® Sport PS2

Tread life 6

Wet traction 10

Quiet ride 10

Handling 10

Winter traction N/A

Mud Traction N/A

Pilot® Sport

Wet traction 9

Mud Traction N/A

Anyone have any preferences? or advice?

Do you have winter where you live?

The PS2 is a top choice of enthusiasts. It will not wear as long as the all season. It will not operate well at near freezing temperatures. It will stick like snot on mountain roads and race tracks.

For a Boxster S the difference in tread life between these two tires is some thing like 8-10K miles for PS2(rear tires) and 12-16K for A/S(rear tires.) Front tires may last twice as long.

My daily driver has summer tires and winter tires for Albany, NY. If I lived in San Francisco or Los Angeles, I would use only a summer tire. If I drove 80% on freeways and city streets I would choose All Season - but at 80% boring driving, I might also exchange my Boxster for a BMW or Audi.
