Sorry for the long time between posts, I have been SUPER busy over the last month! There is a great article on the Michelin Pilot Super Sport A/S 3 #PSAS3 on the BMW Blog written by Shawn Molnar. In the story he writes:

Quote:
These Michelins are not intended as track tires, though you’d have me fooled through an autocross. To call them all-seasons almost seems disingenuous – they are just too good at everything: it seems to defy the category, which normally is mediocre at everything and good at nothing. In short, these are all-seasons that perform like summer performance tires yet can bring you safely home through light snow and slush.

I could see myself fitting these on nearly any BMW or MINI for street use while having R compounds at the ready for track day use. If you don’t do track days with your BMW or MINI but do enjoy pushing your car near its limits on curvy roads, these tires could strike a good balance between sport and all-weather driving safety, as well as good comfort and wear properties.
You can read the complete story here:

Hopefully they will be released very soon as I need a set of 225/40/18's to replace the crappy run flats that Mercedes forces Canadians to have on their vehicles.
