el_gringo Posted March 25, 2022 Share Posted March 25, 2022 Sorry to open another tyre thread, but like many on this forum I have standard 18" rims with 235/40 and 265/40 tyres, and I'm looking to replace the aging PS2 N4 rubber. I'm looking for best fast summer road options, not track, and a good compromise between wet and dry performance. Not too concerned about wear levels or noise as I don't do huge miles. Most of the tyre threads here look at all the great options available for 19" rims, or are a couple of years old, and don't reflect what's available today. I really don't want to shell out £000s on 19" rims, so what recommendations do you have based on tyres that are currently available? As far as I can see, these are what's on the market today from the premium brands - I've only included tyres that are available for both front and rear, and that have reinforced sidewall for the rear (or are N rated): Michelin PS4 (not S!) Michelin PS2 (N4) Michelin Pilot Super Sport Bridgestone Potenza (N1) Bridgestone Potenza Sport Goodyear Eagle F1 Asym2 Pirelli P Zero Looking at the verdict on the recent TyreReview test (2022 UHP test), the Potenza Sport stands out, though that test was on a front engined rear drive car, so may be less relevant for the Cayman. I know the PS4S is everyone's go to tyre, but it's not available on 18s, so let's not open that can of worms! So what are your thoughts on what's available, and have I missed any options from other manufacturers? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
