If you’re interested in fitting the all-new Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres to your wheels then you might want to have a read of Daniel Anslow’s write-up on the totallymotor.co.uk website.
He track tested the latest high performance tyres from the French marque at Porsche’s Driving Experience Centre nestled in the Silverstone compound, with the help of a few 911s and Caymans.
Daniel, who had great fun testing the tyres against their competitors for track performance, writes: “Now I’m not a tyre-tester but the fact that after a few settling laps I’ve almost forgotten that we’re testing tyres is a testament to the Super Sports easy usability.
“It’s only when ambition finally outweighs talent and the instructor asks me to reign it in a bit, informing me that it was only the complex and clever PSM (Porsche Stability Management) that kept this brand new motor out of the armco; that I’m sharply shown that it’s the tyres and the car that are actually the stars of these pretty quick laps.
“If you’re a regular racer or track-dayer then you’ll want to try out and to understand these new Michelins for yourself, but for us laymen out there I can tell you that the Super Sports delivered great dry grip.”
