Michelin PS4s tyres

Post by UV Blue » Wed Mar 20, 2019 5:51 pm

Hi all,

I'm hearing exceptional reviews of this new tyre,

https://www.michelin.co.uk/tyres/michel ... -sport-4-s

I've got Pirelli PZero's on mine and I may switch to these Michelin's when the time comes...

has anyone had any experience of Michelin PS4s?

I’ve been running them for months.

Best tyre I’ve ever had.

Slightly expensive, but you get what you pay for.

Just a shame they don't do them in 18" sizes. Grrrr. Oh well will have to make do with PS4's when mine need changing next.

Have them on the XE, and nothing but positive things to say over here. A huge upgrade from the stock 19" all season tires. I'm a bit of a rubber aficionado, and you'd be pressed to do better in this category.

Any reason for wanting to change? I have almost the same set-up as you and I have been finding the Pirelli's a bit twitchy at the rear. Mine still have a bit to go before they will need replacing and I have been considering these Michelin tyres too.

I agree the Pirelli's are 'twitchy' at the rear, on our rough UK roads they are noisy and they can 'tramline' - I think the PS4s would be a step up to a superior tyre. Just wanted to get peoples thoughts. My tyres are at present in good order so this is for the future.

I have about 19,000 km (12,000 miles) on mine and they still have plenty of tread left. So like you, not ready for replacement just yet.

Definitely feel a more planted tyre under load - a lot of us over on the F-Type forum swapped and I have nothing but praise for them - feel to have more grip in the cold and are more progressive. No twitchy rear now - well, unless provoked :D

They'll be going back on instead of my SottoZero 3's very soon now.

These tyres are engineered for V8 twin turbos and the like, cars with significantly higher power ratings. A huge bellyful of engine power is absorbed when these Michelins present their hugely reinforced carcasses and ultra load bearing tread construction towards cornering. Most of the humble Jaguar engine’s power is thereby absorbed. I rest my case. Forty years experience in the performance car world, on and off track, and I’ve seen most things.

Have just replaced the p zero's on my S for a full set of ps4s and the difference it very noticeable,far grippier with less tramlineing and far quieter,also on a plus note the fronts offer better rim protection on the wheel(still not great but a lot better then the p zero's),they are expensive compared to the Pirelli's but as soon as I drove the car I knew it was money well sent
