Hey everyone. In case you were wondering I got this reply off Michelin today. Please tell me this aggravates you, too. Why make tires for a car this far apart??

"We are sorry but*the Pilot Super Sport in size 255/40R19 will not be available until mid 2012.* Size 285/35R19 is planned for late 2013."

:hmm: :helpless:

The



Fartknocker!











That angers me greatly. Do you happen to know(or can find out) whether a 295/35 19 tire will come out sooner???

If this is the case, I think I will sell off my stockers and get some TSW Nurburgrings in 20" and get the PSSs in 20" sizes...

For the rear I would use 305/30ZR19 PSS tires.

Michelin doesn't make the PS2 A/S for all four corners either. The make only non runflats for the front and only runflats for the rear. Dumb sh*ts.

Tell me about it. I was scratching my head over this one all day. I'm not thrilled at all because I was really hoping these badboys would be available in 2012 (now here's a stretch....) as a SET for the V. I really hope someone from the company is paying attention.

Whew. I'm just psyched they are going to offer them in our size. They are going to be better and cheaper than PS2's it looks like. I've been reading about them since they came out.

I have the 255/35/19 and 305/30/19 PSS's on my car with eibach coupe springs and it looks very aggressive.

The PSS's have a nice ride and are pretty grippy.

The 285/35ZR19 (the current CTS-V rear tire) is already available in ZP through Michelin. This tire size is the same as the front tire of the current ZR1 Corvette. If Michelin make the 255/40ZR19 in a ZP then we will have all four corners of the CTS-V covered in ZP. Hallalua!

That may not be a bad thing. But I'd like to know if that affects comfort much...

Me too, but having to wait 2 years is ridiculous.
