    Considering new Michelin PS3

    I have had a few vibration issues with my second set of Goodyear Eagle F1 Asym, am now considering the new PS3, not sure exactly what the target audience is for this tyre ofver the PS2 maybe slightly better life and less hardcore. Presume it will be fine for the S3 ?

    apparently they are slightly better than the PS2 in the wet but slightly down on dry grip... also they wear less... by 4% haha http://www.tyrereviews.co.uk/Tyre/Mi...-Sport-PS2.htm

    Thanks with improved wet weather performance and a slight hit in the dry it sounds ideal for the UK

    I had been very pleased with what seemed to be the tyre of choice the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymertric but the customer service trying to resolve what appeats to be a faulty tyre has been appaling. So wanted to try another brand and always like the idea of the PS2 but the PS3 seems even better suited fot the UK.

    I personally love the grip of the PS3 but after only 6,000 miles the tread is nearing the point where im starting to think they dont wear well and I 'mostly' do motorway miles!

    I've always had PS2's but on Monday had PS3's fitted on the front. Cant tell any difference so far which is a good thing as there was nothing wrong with the PS2's. Handling in the wet and dry is great.

    Had 2 sets of PS2's on the front previously and had 17,000 miles out of them both times so hoping for more of the same with the PS3's...

    they great, really good, before i had Goodyear Eagle F1 Asym, i found them really good too, but if i had to choose between them i would get the ps3, they just feel much more of a smoother ride and more comfortable,

    As said they are meant to be an improvement mainly in the wet. There was a feature in the Audi driver mag a few months ago now about testing they did on the tyre against the goodyears. I've got ps3s on mine and they're great.
