    Yep the star stamp on OEM M cars have proven to be a couple of seconds faster in lap time

    Which is why I find my PS2 is actually pretty damn good, i can imagine the PSS with start stamp will be even better...could possibly match Corsa in terms of lap time.

    Now Corsa is history, new thing is called Trofeo
    Being ard for a while but hard to get...damn expensive but it's really amazing.

    anyone shoving them on the M3's yet? appreciate a quick review..
    latest shipment of M3s aren't given PSS but all on PS2 (with start stamp one)

    But i know one 1M had PSS installed upon request and the owner is happy with it

    back to PSS ..........thanks for all the input .... can tell tyres can be such a passionate topic..

    i am currently on RE11 (was on PS2 before) apart from being heavy and noisy at times... it's a damn good tyre with stiff side wall, sharp steering feel, good grip wet or dry .. solid connection feel between you and the tarmac which some called it harsher ..

    PSS is the next contender i am considering if i were to go back to michelin..

    would it be wrong to assume the PSS will carry PS2 characterisitcs in terms of ride and feel?
    yes 458 oem is PSS. n they r much better than ps2. i wud rate them between ps2 n pscup level. very very good road tires. sharp and assured but i understand pricey too..

    I think I mentioned it somewhere. Tires sure can get but expensive! Unless you wanna get like 2-3 sets. Its the shipping cost that is the killer
