    Michelin pilot super sports as fitted standard on new cars.

    The super sports are being replaced with the pilot sport 4s.
    I had the SS now got 4s not noticed much difference in the wet and it's not been very dry. Very good tyres

    Depends on what you want to spend on them. If money is not a problem then I'd go with the Michelin pilot super sport which come as standard. They are really good in the wet and dry but you probably wont see past 8000 miles from them. Cheaper options are like the kumho as someone suggested or the hankook s1 evo's which ive got on mine. Id have the Michelins if mine wasn't a daily driver. The hankooks are really good though, I get no spin in the wet and they're fantastic in the dry too

    I'm toying with the idea of putting Kuhmo's on when my Goodyear's (expensive) need replacing before the MOT in a few months time -- expensive tyres are fine but I'm beginning to think perhaps it's better to knacker up cheaper tyres as the mileage you get out of premium over budget can't be all that much and peeps say the wet and dry grip are more or less the same, will have to have a good think whether to go budget next time
