Michelin - Super Sport or Primacy MXM4

Going to take advantage of the Michelin special right now. What do you guys think for my '04 BMW 352i sport sedan based on experience? Seems like it's hard to go wrong with either one, but the MXM4 seems to get slighly better reviews for only a few more bucks.

I'm in Illinois where weather is often a bit of everything. The tires on the car after I just purchased it are LOUD. Anxious to get a set that don't drown out the conversation.

Thanks all.

The Michelin Pilot Super Sport is a summer-only tire. So, if you are planning on using this new set of tires year round in Illinois, stick with the MXM4.

Unless you plan on doing performance driving, I would stick with the mxm4's. They are also more all season.

Very true! Better idea is to get a summer set and spare set of rims for a winter set...
