People who went from the OEM conti to Michelin Ps4s - how would you compare them? Durability I know michelin will outlast, but for just grip and road feel?

I got them in stock size, they ride better/less harsh but have slightly less steering feel/turn in. Straight line grip is better, cornering grip similar

First impressions?
PS4Ss with about 10 miles or less, very similar. Going for a twisty road run tomorrow so will have a better idea then. Even then though not sure I have a good enough memory to compare unless I were to really try them back to back.

More curious to see how they PS4s hold up with a track day + normal driving.

I won't be tracking them. Going to get some 18" with something track focused. I suspect they would do well, but need to track something more affordable :)

so far hanging in there at 14K - no track just normal commute-but with the punctures i'm getting regularly! I "guess" these tires are soft. I know the compound is soft for summer grip.

This may be controversial but I like the stock tire. Will be switching to michelins eventually but I've certainly had worse tires

the only issue I have with stock is they seem to puncture quite easily. I drove the same route in my 370Z with continental summer tires and no punctures.
Otherwise fine.
Well there was that one time when I got contractor screws in 3 out of the 4 tires but that doesn't count. There was a boxful on the road and I couldn't swerve.
I then went to Hankooks just based on price.

I normally get about 500-1000 miles out of them before my new wheels/ tires show up and I sell them.

I just put the ps4s on couple days ago. Definately some turn in loss. Car feels a tad less planted on turn ins compared to the conti's. I too liked the contis
