New Tires PS2 - Road Noise Gone


Recommended Posts

I just had new tires installed on my 2003 Boxster S. I put on Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 tires, 225/45x17 front and 255/40x17 rear. After a few hundred miles I am pleasently surprised to discover that normal road noise with these tires is much less than with the OEM Bridgestone SO-2A. I can now listen to the hi-fi on the road at cruising speeds and it sounds OK, and that was certainly not the case with the old tires.

I have not been to the track yet, so I can't comment on the handling, but all of the tests indicate these are great tires for high speed lapping DE type events. So while I don't expect to be disappointed by their handling qualities, the lack of tire noise was a nice unexpected surprise.

not only will they fit, they have better handling characteristics (larger fronts reduce understeer)

I agree, much quieter. AND much stickier! I'm loving these tires.

Hi there

I need to change my tires on the boxster but I could not find 205/50ZR17 for the front. would the 225/45x17 fit my car too.
