Discount Tire no longer sells Michelins for my 2007
 
No more PS2s or AS-3s. wtf! I had my mind set on Michelins like I did on my previous Boxster. So they tell me my only option is Continental Sport Cont 3, or Yokohamas. What is your recommendation between the two? I tend to want to stick with Discount, but open to other dealers. Chris

The PS2 was superseded by the Pilot Super Sport which has now been superseded by the Pilot Sport 4S. I'd ask if they carry the Pilot Sport 4S in your size and even if they don't carry them in stock, they can special order them for you.

Is Michelin PS4S as Good as the PSS?

What about Tire Rack ?

We checked and the 4S wasn't available either.

What size do you need?

texomawaves 12-26-2017 03:49 PM

205/55-R17 front, 235/50-R17 rear. stock size for 2007. Any opinions on Continental vs Yokohama?

Conti and Yoko make lots of different tires with very different characteristics so you are going to have to be more specific.

All season or summer tire?

Max grip or longevity?

Price?

There should be lots of choices in 17". 18" is even better for tire choices.

Try PS4 rather than 4S.

I'm a daily driver. High traffic, highway speeds at times, city driving mostly. I don't usually go above 80mph. Longevity/treadwear and smooth quiet ride are important to me.

I think I have a set of P/S 3 tires in the size you want. The rears are like 90% and the front are about 95%. I'll need to check

If it were my car I would shop for 205/50/17 and 235/45/17 instead. A lot more tire choices and while they are a slightly lower profile, it preserves your stock diameter stagger so ABS and PSM will be happy.

These are all viable choices for a DD with longevity being a priority:
