>there are people on o who don't run Pilot Super Sports or Pilot Sports a/s 3
How does it feel to have an inferior street tire?
>not as much grip as the many 200 TW tires that are cheaper
>not as long lasting or comfortable as cheapo all seasons
>spending 2x the money for a shitty compromise tire
I listed there all season variant which is good for 50k, proven to have highest skidpagd g's, and has highest quality materials- stay pleb
summer tires have better performance in wet traction than all season. Pilot super sports had the lowest brake distances of any other tire and highest skidpad g's in wet conditions.
>1 result for tire manufacturer Michelin
>Cory Collins, 46th out of 46 in F Street
>2014 Mustang GT
>Pilot super sports had the lowest brake distances of any other tire and highest skidpad g's in wet conditions
Out of what tires? Nobody uses these tires for serious performance applications (which many exist for street tires) and for good reason
>Pilot Sport A/S 3
No thanks on anything that gets driven harder than daily, famalam. I'd rather have BFGoodrich Sport Comp 2 for three seasons in my neck of the world.
>1. Minimum UTQG Treadwear Grade of 200.

You are literally retarded.
inferior street tire to what? a truck tire? lol
Where does the Continental Extreme Contact DW fit into all this?
I run two sets of tires because of winter. When temperatures dip in my city, all seasons have fuck all for traction. No need for hektik slidez into the back of some retard in a beige Corolla.
>BFGoodrich G-Force Rival S
>Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R
>Hankook Ventus RS-3 V2
These are all Extreme summer tires. They are purposefully made to have more dry then wet traction compared to lower categories. Also there wet performance when compared is significantly lower.
Even tirerack lists Extreme tires as being, "Extreme Performance Summer
You want extreme dry street performance and are willing to trade some comfort and hydroplaning resistance to get it."
> trade hydroplaning resistance
>It isn't a problem.
They are still inferior to other summer tires that perform better in the wet and dry combined
op's point was what is the best street tire for street conditions
If your temperatures don't fall below 45 degrees Fahrenheit, a max performance summer tire will perform the best on the street in wet road conditons compared to extreme
unless you get a dedicated tire made ONLY for wet driving conditions
And MASSIVELY cheaper
I'm not a set of wheels for road set of wheels for track kinda guy so I needed a good 3 season that works all the time and decent treadwear.
Also they were on sale kek.
Pilot Sports a/s 3 is an all season tire
Unless it rains more than half the time out of the year, you would have been better off with the PSAS 3 since it performs better overall
I run hard as fuck in the rain. It's my favorite time to drive and the challenge alone, having the wipers swooshing, and hearing all the water resistance and splashes from the car is wayyy more exhilarating than driving in the dry
Tire is specifically designed to be shit in uneven, bumpy, cracked, or wet pavement.
It is useless on a fun twisty backroad since that shit aint never gonna be as smooth as a major public road.
There's also way more standing water, mud, and other things that send you reeling
>Kumho's specially formulated, high-grip silica competition tread compound into a directional design that features wide tread ribs to maximize dry cornering grip while enhancing handling and treadlife. Directional tread notches and circumferential grooves help preserve wet traction when run at full tread depth. Kumho advises that the Ecsta V700 Racetrack & Autocross Only radial must be shaved prior to use in dry conditions.
You literally only get to pick one, and both are shit on the street anyways compared to a proper street tire.
What tires should I get?
Summer only performance tires, will very rarely ever see light rain. Budget for the whole set is $500-$600.
Currently looking at the Sumitomo HTR Z IIIs
Except i used the V70s in both the dry and the wet, and the wet was fine albeit slow and the dry was much, much better than other 'high performance' shit i've used like RE050 and P-Zero.
>hurr they don't work on bumps
Tell that to the fucking nurburgring and every other street circuit on the planet.
Nurburgring is fucking flat except for elevation changes and the carousels
You're retarded. Please find the twistiest mountain road and go drive your car there and come back and we will talk
anon I have an ND and I wanted to switch to 15s or 16s
sadly we who want acceleration and to be quick are being left behind by the pigfats and cantturns shelling out all the money, so there are almost no good tires in those sizes
>tfw 15 people on that list are regulars at my region
no wonder i cant get out of mid-pack/last
why do i even fucking bother
It's for a '72 Camaro in a pro-touring role.
You might want to work on your budget. Wide ass tires cost more and so do the good ones.
Also with your power output/weight you would be better off with a Dunlop, Michelin or ehhh maybe bridgestone or goodyear
Fair enough, I kind expected that answer. I'm trying to fit wheels and tires into my tax return, and the wheels are going to be about $900.
The way the car currently sits, it can't really utilize everything a nice set of PSS's can offer. I figured a cheaper set of grippy tires will get me by until I go through the suspension overhaul.
The problem is finding wheels with the size/backspacing requirements I have, since I'm going big brakes. I figured buy once cry once on the wheels, and upgrade the tires when I exceed the limits of a more affordable set. As it sits right now I'm not willing to push the car in the corners.
