Getting ready to pull the trigger on some PS2's
 
Well, I have 17,000 miles on the car now and after much research and debate I'm about ready to buy some pilot sport 2's from Tire Rack. The rears are finally past teh wear bars. The fronts are still looking decent but I'm going to replace them to so the car is balanced. It's going to cost me around a grand +shipping it looks like. I know they aren't "N" rated but that doesn't really amount to a hill of beans from the several sources I've talked to here and there over the last few mo. Anyway, this is kind of like an upgrade for the car(hopefully) as it now has the OEM pilot sport ribs. I will let you guys know my before and after impressions and keep you posted. :)

Hi,

I don't think you'll go wrong, they are very well respected tires. I'll be interested in your impressions...

Happy Motoring!... Jim'99

I have the same 18' PS2 which was an upgrade from a few months ago. They are very quiet and has excellent traction even in wet condition. I don't think PS2 has a long thread life from what I heard.

I've got them on 2 sets..
 
the OE 18's that came with the car and an extra set I bought on ebay.

At 4K on the OE set, there has been little wear; they are quiet and provide a compliant ride.

On the track set, we have done a 2 day EVO auto-x school, 2 auto-x's and 3 DE's. 2 of the DE's and the EVO school were done in wet weather and I gained a healthy respect of how good these tires are in the wet. Simply the best wet weather tires I've ever been on.

On a dry track, they've got good lateral traction and have held up remarkably well wear wise. the turn in doesn't feel as sharp as the sport ribs because of the softer sidewall but certainly adequete for a DE.

All things considered, it would be my first choice for an everyday tire. Not cheap, but you treally do get the goods with this tire.
