Another report about the 4S tires. Yesterday in the DC area, we got dumped on with heavy rains all day. I drove my 1 through some of the pretty bad downpours. I can say the tires were awesome. No traction problems even through some pretty deep standing water and mini streams due to all the rain coming down at once. It was something blowing by SUVs in full control.

I continue to be very impressed with the updates to the new tire.

Goodyear Eagle RSA. Great all arounder tires. Smooth, compliant, and grippy!

Pirelli P Zero Nero GT
Just had them mounted so can't quite comment on them yet.
Had Hankook Ventus V12 Evo and while great the rears only lasted 13k miles.

I concur, got some 4s last week and boy these things are just amazing!! I was doing 95mph in a bad downpour as well and I was calm and confident, I only have them on the front(supersports in rear). Michelin has always impressed me, ever since their first every pilot sport tire back in 2000.

I had Michelin Pilot Super Sport before, they suck on track even though they are great for the street rain or shine.

So decided to give the Contis a shot.
Very satisfied with my Continental Extreme Contact Sport.

The savings over the Michelin makes them even better... highly recommend them. Apparently they're the best tires when wet. Only time I could test the wet capabilities was on a track day (not on the street yet unfortunately as it doesn't rain much around here).
Suffices to say I would start my lapping sessions in the last position and pass everyone in 20 minutes and end in first... whole different pace when wet compared to all others.

Michelin pilot super sports. Love em, pretty quiet and grip like a mofo, at this point idk what'll reach the limit first - my skill or the dirt on the road . The car is certainly capable

Went from MPSS to FF-Indy500. Both are similar in grip dry & wet. The feel is a bit different. FFI500 feel stiffer, the MPSS give a bit more feedback and feeling but the performance to me seems very similar.

I'm running Conti ExtremeContact Sports on my 128 and loving them. Great dry and wet grip and perfect for year-round use here in South FL.

I just put on Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+. First impressions are that they are much more comfortable and quiet than the stock Dunlop run flats. The reason I went with all-seasons instead of Summer tires even though I live in Florida was to hopefully get more treadlife. How many miles are you guys getting with those Summer tires like the Michelin PS4S, Super Sport or Continental ExtremeContact Sport?

My AS/3 lasted only half what my SS lasted. Did not have enough grip to keep the tires from spinning all the time.

Dunlop Direzza DZ102

The DZ102 was a good tire for me. I just changed out the rears at 13,670 miles but they still had some life so lets say 15,000 miles on the rear. Strangely tho, Dunlop have a treadwear rating of 460.

I've got Michelin tires on all 5 of our SUVs / Car / Truck...

Whenever it may need them, I'll get Michelin's for my Harley as well...

Update: just as the Michelin Pilot Super Sport, these continental do not hold well as they're too soft.

Front shoulders cording bad.

Will keep on searching for the right compromise.

MPS4S.
No question.

If you like MPSS (I did) MPS4S are better in every way, especially wet.

Goodyear Eagle F1s all around. I'm happy (the car isn't tracked), but thinking about what's next.
