Michelin tires seem to be made with excessively hard rubber, even my snow tires are a bit stiff. I'll be replacing my Michelin's with Bridgestone next time around.

i want PS3's in February, but can't justify spending so much money. I'm still deciding but not feeling that comfortable with that idea.
I think Hankook V12's..

Perfect timing! My PS2's are done for after this past summer. If they're good enough for the 599 GTO then they're probably good enough for my old M3.

Probably the next set will be only 2 rear PS2 until the fronts wear down, but I have a feeling what I'm getting after!

I have V12s. I have a suspicion V12s have balance/vibration issues. I get odd and random vibrations in the steering wheel on my current car and my former car with a fully rebuilt suspension and perfect wheels (E36 M3) and when I say fully rebuilt I mean fully rebuilt. Spent tons of money on the car. Wheels road forced balanced and alignment perfect. I think next time I'll get other tires. Other than that the v12s rock... except the rumors of it being hard to balance.

So I just learned that these new pss as well as the ps2 will now have a treadwear warranty. ............. that is awesome lol

Pss is for six years or 30000 miles
Ps2s is for six? years or 20000 miles

I don't quite get what this means for someone who goes 9000-12000 miles on a set of ps2s

But it sounds like a good thing.... this only applies for tires purchased after 3/1/11

Great means the older ones will be cheaper once tire change time rolls around.

Warranty for what? If you eat them before 20k miles then they give you new ones? Burnout / -4 * camber time!

Longer treadwear isnt always a good thing from a performance strandpoint.
