Anyone tried the Michelin PS3's yet????
Yes I had them on before i got my four snow tyres. The PS3's are very good tyres in the wet and dry. I can only compare them with the standard Bridgestone Potenza RE050A's that came on my car and in my opinion the PS3's are a very good tyre. I only had them on 4 weeks so cant tell how there going to last but they get the thumbs up from me.
I have them and I love them. Can't go wrong.
I've just ordered 4 PS2s. Had them on my LCR and my STi and loved them. Heard mixed stories about the PS3s. I'll stick to what I know.
if ps2's are anything to go by they will be amazing, im gonna stick with the ps'2 for the rest of the time i have the car... too scared nothing could match its performance...
tbh most high end sports cars even a lot of supercars run the ps'2/3
PS2's are legendary. Although their handling in the wet scared the **** out of me. PS3 are abit better all round but no doubt I have a soft spot for the 2's..in the dry that is.
i have had PS3's on for around 4k now and they are a very good tyre in my opinion.
i had PS2's on before and the PS3's are a better all round tyre.
i highly recommend them!
the wet grip is better than the PS2's before i had my car mapped it could spin tyre when pulling out of a certain junction in wet conditions the PS3's have not spun up once and my car is mapped these days
oh and my car is quattro
I've had PS3s fitted for about 1.5k now. Handling is really good in both the wet & dry.
Depending how long they last, I might get them again or go back to the Goodyear F1 asymmetrics, as I found those a little bit quieter than the PS3s. Or wait for the Conti SportContact 5s to be available in std S3 size as they get good write ups...
if PS3s are better than 2s they must be some tyre! still not risking it tho. hard to believe they are better in the wet! They put 2s on the veyron, thats good enough for me
They are better in the wet full stop. Tests have shown this although if ultimate dry grip is your aim then ps2 is the way although a supersports is coming out soon.
Cheers for all your comments. Running Dunlops at the mo, came with the car. After 10,000 miles they are all down to 2mm and will need changing soon. Had PS2's for a while on my last S3 and although they were probably the best tyre i've ever used I found them really noisy, was wondering if the PS3's were the same?
I have a set on my S4 and i am very pleased with the performance and handling of the PS3's. I have heard there is a michelin super sport tyre coming soon, could be very expensive though. You wont go far wrong with the PS3's.
PS3's you cant go wrong... but i have switched over to continentals SC3's and in the process of testing some Goodyear Eagles with the new tyre pressure system installed... Finding the tyres extremely sticky in wet, damp and dry conditions and can also take alot of abuse.. done around 5k of hard driving and wheel slippage and still have a nice 6.8mm across the tread. The road noise has increased but you got to expect it with the run flats.
PS3's are nice but i was not happy about the wear, the Contis lasted a good 4k more.
You cant be driving that hard. The Eagle Asym's I had on my LCR only lasted 7k!
