Great handling - good buy

published

Handles great, not too much noise, good grip. Changed to these tyres after Pirelli's and felt a big difference - tracks better doesnt waver and comfortable to drive on. Will buy again.

Outstanding grip a little noisy

published

These tyres have astonishing traction. In fact, no matter how hard I pushed them they never skidded. A true performance tyre. The only downside is they began to crack a bit on the outside edge as they got older and do become a bit noisy as they wear. If you want to be super-glued to the road wet or dry, the Michelin man has certainly done it again!

Noisey as f

published

Was not happy with the OEM tyres that are on the WRX, Dunlops. Went with the PS4 as it’s supposed to be a quieter tyre. No, can’t have a conversation in the car at highway speeds, constant drone! And no it’s not the bearings, alignment and balance done twice. Tried psi’s from 35 to 45, just rubbish. Maybe if you have a nobend exhaust you can’t hear it. Very disappointed.

Tyres that perform

published

Michelin Pilots were recommended by a trusted friend. Had a set fitted 12 months ago and I am very happy with the performance both dry and wet. The handling is well above average and they are very quiet on the highway. In terms of wear I have done about 15,000 klm and so far very little wear at all. Price wise these are outstanding value for money.

Bad, really bad.

published

I have 4 pilot sport 4 fitted last year June, it only last 14000 km, the two back tyres were totally wore out, two front ones are a little bit better, went to the store and try to find if it's the batch quality issue and claim under warranty, they blame my drive habit. really disappointed, Michelin is off my list now, same as that store.

Changing all my cars to this tyre

published

Got these on a Honda Civic Type R and the grip is mind blowing. Going into a corner faster than you think the tyres can handle and they keep on gripping and turning in.
Reasonably cheap for the performance that they offer. Run them at 42 - 45psi
Prior to these i had the Continental equivalent and they are worlds apart.

Purchased in for $239.

mind blowing Grip

published

I have a very light and powerful FWD and have not been able to find tyres that don't spin at every green light. Until i fitted PS4, 235/45/17. I can not spin these even when i try. Cornering in wet or dry is the Same!! infact they seem to grip better when it rains. Also ive done 20000km on these and still plenty left. Hands down the best ive ever had in 30 years of driving.

First 200kms

published

The 4 x PS4 tyres replace the OEM Bridgestone's that came on the 2018 Mk7.5 Golf GTI. (225/40 r18)
Overall grip and wet controlled are improved, noise at speed is less.
So far these live up the the hype

Great all round tire

published

Getting ready to change my tires on my 2016 Honda Civic VTi-LX (1.5L Turbo) after having the PS4 on. Bought in April 2019 and lasted about 30,000kms. These KMs were a mix of highway cruising, slow city traffic and fast corners and turns. Handled amazingly in all areas and even now when it's at its legal limit is still quite grippy. Handled super well in wet up until recently and road noise isn't too bad. Would suggest keeping the tire pressure lower though (mid to low 30PSI) to decease a bit of the road noise. 4 stars as the tires are fully worn on the outer ends of the front tires.

Purchased in for $1,000.

8,500 and unroadworthy

published

Got the PS4 on my brand new Mercedes AMG GLC63S. Both front tyres without grip on the edges. Inflated all the time at recommend manufacturer pressure. Wanted to replace with Pirelli PZero but the reviews are worse than Michelin. Not good for roundabouts. Worn on the outside very quickly.

Are the michelin pilot sport 4 reliable on bad roads? In other words do these tires form bubbles on the sidewall frequently?

My area has some of the worst pot holes I’ve ever seen. In fact I can recall hitting some so hard I was sure the rim would be bent. Never any problems or bubbles.
