Update to my review in 2013

5 / 5

By Fagunza

This is a follow-up to my previous post. I am now on my second set of Cup tires and still think they are the best I've ever driven. As I predicted, my first set lasted about 1000 very hard miles (four track days and about that many auto cross events). I really can't say enough good things about these tires but I can tell you that they allow me to drive my Corvette way over my head. Empirically, I can report that my previous PS2 tires would register 1.1 g's after a run on my local track while these Cup tires consistently pull 1.3 g's on my meter. Problems: I've had a difficult time getting fresh tires (I refused 3 separate sets of rears that were three years old). Also, since ZP tires seen to be hard to mount, the last set had to be taken to three different (national brand) shops before the job could be completed. Still love 'em.

I drive a 2010 Corvette ZR1 that is primarily become a trackday car. I recently had to replace the original Pilot Sport PS2's after just 5000 miles secondary to flat-spotting the fronts, when the new tune-up / supercharger overdrive, changed the ABS threshold, when I locked them up briefly while threshold braking. The PS2's were fantastic tires, great grip and wear; very excellant feedback on the track. PS2's give a nice controlled drift when you push to the limit on a Corvette. I was looking to upgrade to an even better tire (if that exists?), so I looked at the new AS/3 specs which look fantastic but they don't make them in the ZR1 sizes yet. The only other tire made that works for my car is the CUP tires. I was concerned that the wear rating is not good on that tire, and it looks like it only has half the tread of most tires, to start with. Yesterday I did a trackday at Daytona which the 32' banking stresses tires to the max (as does 730hp / 720ft.lbs tq) and the tires worked FANTASTICALLY !!! The day was warm and the grip was terrific when the track was hot and in full sun. It was the same when it became overcast and on the first lap with cold tires. The tires are unbelievable!!! Places I can get the car to understeer slightly, it didn't understeer, it didn't drift, just hooked and turned in, like it was on rails! I had to change my lines because I found I could turn in harder, and get out quicker, at 10 mph faster, everywear on the track. I have a lightly modified ZR1 and I can say that these tires can more than handle the power and abuse this car can dish out. Even when I got out of shape while braking off camber, or turning in too hot, the tires just gripped and got it done! I am super impressed that they can out perform my abilities and my high performance car. I highly recommend these tires and will be using them or the next generation of them, in the future.

Phenomenal tires ! I drive a 2011 Porsche GT3 and these tires have gotten a terrific testing recently (June 2014). I drove high speed across West Texas, southern New Mexico into Monterey, Ca, with air temps in the high 90's-100's and then drove 50 + laps at Laguna Seca at race speeds and then followed that with the return trip thru Nevada and Utah at temps @ 100 degrees on into the twisty, winding roads in Colo and northern New Mexico and finished up this trip with a return across west Texas ! We put 5,000 hard miles on these tires and they handled everything spectacularly well. Still have maybe 3,000 miles of use left !

Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) is for a tire only (i.e., excluding services such as mounting, balancing and tire disposal) and is applicable for the contiguous United States. Actual pricing may vary based on retailer, region, tire size and other factors. Retailers are free to set individual prices. Please check with your local Michelin tire dealer for pricing near you.

OE [Vehicle Manufacturer] Sidewall Marking:  * = BMW, N# = Porsche, C1 = Chrysler/Dodge, TPC=GM
OE Code [Original Equipment Key]:  BMW = BMW, GM = GM, POR = Porsche,  CHR = Chrysler
XL =  Extra Load
DT = Different tread
>> The sizes shown are average design values for tires measured on specified measuring rim widths.  Some tires may vary from this value by +/-3% of the section height (affecting overall diameter), and +/-4% of the section width.
>> Section width varies approximately 0.2" (5mm) for every 0.5" change in rim width.
>> Tread patterns are often tuned to accomodate different tire widths.  Tires for a particular dimension of a given tireline may vary in appearance from the tire shown in the photograph.
WARNING: Serious or fatal injury may result from tire failure due to underinflation or overloading. To ensure correct air pressure and vehicle load, refer to vehicle owner's manual or tire information placard on the vehicle. Serious injury or death may result from explosion of tire/rim assembly due to improper mounting. Only tire professionals should mount tires and they should never inflate beyond 40 psi  to seat the beads.  Before mixing types of tires in any configuration on any vehicle, be sure to check the vehicle owner's manual for its recommendations.
DANGER:  Never mount a 16" diameter tire on a 16.5" rim.
DANGER:  Never mount a 17" diameter tire on a 17.5" rim.
Inflation pressure increase must not exceed the maximum pressure branded on the tire sidewall.  When a customer requests a replacement tire with a lower speed rating than the original equipment tire, you must clearly communicate to him or her that the handling of the vehicle may be different, and that its maximum speed capability is limited to that of the lowest speed-rated tire on the vehicle.  Exceeding the lawful speed limit is neither recommended nor endorsed.
For high-speed driving, additional inflation pressure and possibly reduced tire loading and/or upsizing is required.  In the absence of specific recommendations by the vehicle manufacturer, use the following guidelines based on those in the European Tyre and Rim Technical Organization Standards Manual.
For speeds over 160km/h (100 mph), load and inflation must be adjusted according to the table below.
(Y)-Speed Rated Sizes:
Maximum Speed (mph)     118     124     130     136     143     149     155     161     168     174     180     186
Inflation Increase (psi)     0     0     0     0     1.5     3     4.5     6     7.5     7.5     7.5     7.5

For speeds above 186 mph (300 kph), consult your vehicle manufacturer and tire dealer.
