I need to order some more Tyres.
I currently have Michelin ps2 and have been quite happy but want a bit mor grip without going to the cup Tyres.
I thought of the Michelin super sport but they don't make the size in the rears.
I then Thought of putting the super sport on the front and the ps2 on the rear.
My logic on this was they it would also help get the car to turn in better as that is its biggest downfull.
I requested a quote from tyre rack and they came back with this
Thank you for your inquiry. When dealing with these high performance Michelin tires, Michelin has given us explicit instructions that these tires not be mixed on the same vehicle. While the Pilot Super Sport is a superior tire, and regrettably not available in the rear size, mixing them from front to back is not a really good idea. The PS2 tires in the rear would negate any benefit of the Pilot Super Sport tires in the front. And the handling with this combination would not be good. Michelin tested this themselves, and came to the conclusion that it's a bad idea.
However, they do make the PS2 in the front size to match the rear, so I'll give you a quote for that. The fronts are $281 each and the rears are $488 each. Shipping for all 4 would be $373.97, making your total $1,911.97. One other thing I must mention: due to recent changes in the import process for tires, you may be subject to a $40 inspection fee by Australian customs. We do provide all of the necessary paperwork, however they are taking extra steps with tires these days. It is a charge we have no control over.
If you'd like to place this order, please let me know and we can start the process. Thanks!
Sizes are. 225-40-18 / 295-30-18
