You asked, we listened. Here's our thoughts on how the new Michelin Pilot Sport 4 S compares to the Michelin Pilot Super Sport.

We tried to make a 5 minute video to explain the differences, but sadly we failed and this video is 9 minutes. If you're not a tyre geek, but are curious about the differences between the two tyres, feel free to skip to the conclusion at 6:10 as that covers most of it.

Any questions or comments please feel free to ask below, or on YouTube.

2017 AMS Summer UHP Tyre Test

For 2017, Auto Motor und Sport have tested ten 245/45 R18 ultra high performance tyres using a BMW 3 Series Estate.

This test is the first time the new Michelin Pilot Sport 4 and Continental Premium Contact 6 have appeared in the same test, which should give us some interesting data about the two big rivals.

2017 Auto Bild Summer Tyre Test

Following on from the 52 tyre shootout, Auto Bild have taken the twenty best tyres through a full array of wet, dry, NVH (noise, vibration and harshness) and wear tests.

As a change from the usual FWD hatchback used for testing, Auto Bild tested the 225/50 R17 size using a RWD BMW 3 Series.

The Auto Bild sports cars test is usually one of our favourite tests of the year, and this year looks to be no different.

Testing nine 235/35 R19 maximum performance tyres using a Focus ST, Auto Bild have focused on the raw performance of these tyres, weighting the score heavily in favour of wet and dry handling.

For 2017 AutoBild have chosen to test the large 235/50 R18 tyre size, fitted to vehicles such as the BMW X3, Audi Q5 and as tested, the VW Tiguan.

Auto Bild put the ten tyre patterns through the usual wet, dry, comfort and economy tests, and also tested the tyres on grass, gravel, sand and mud, should you wish to take your crossover SUV for some light offroading.

2017 AZ Summer Tyre Test

For 2017 the German publication Auto Zeitung have chosen to test ten summer tyres in 215/55 R17 using a VW Touran.

Like Auto Express, AZ buy their tyres on the open market, meaning the Continental Premium Contact 6 and the Bridgestone Turenza T001 Evo are sadly excluded from the test, and are instead represented by their predecessors. To further highlight the complexity of tyre testing, Hankook noted the version of the Ventus Prime 3 purchased for the test were an early manufacturer date and intended for OE fitment. The aftermarket fitment of the Ventus Prime 3 Hankook would have preferred to be tested would have had better wet performance.

After testing the unusually large size of 225/45 R17 in 2016, normal service has been resumed for the 2017 ADAC Summer tyre test, this time testing sixteen tyre patterns in 195/65 R15.

ADAC tests are no toriously data driven and they write very little commentry of their own, so here's our take on the test.

Michelin have officially launched the replacement to the "internet's favourite tyre". The new Michelin Pilot Sport 4S betters the Michelin Pilot Super Sport in every measurable category, and looks to extend its dominance over its rivals in the maximum performance tyre sector.

The New Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

As with the Pilot Super Sport, the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 S is only available in larger sizes and aimed at high performance vehicles. At launch it is offered in 19" and above, with the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 covering the 16" to 18" fitment.

Launched at the Thermal Club in Palm Springs, Michelin gave Tyre Reviews an early opportunity to drive on the new tyre, covering road and track driving on various vehicles.

Michelin have recently announced a mid life update of the extremely successful Michelin CrossClimate, the Michelin CrossClimate+

The new Michelin CrossClimate+

Launched in March 2015, the CrossClimate was the first of a new breed of all season tyres. Traditionally all season tyres start life as a winter tyre, and have the balance of performance moved slightly towards dry and wet running. While this leaves traditional all season tyres excellent on snow and ice, other performance qualities suffer, especially dry braking.

The CrossClimate started life as a summer tyre, and was gifted winter abilities. While this means it isn't quite as good as traditional all season tyres in extreme winter conditions, it is still more than enough for anything the UK winter has to offer, while retaining the dry and wet performance of a dedicated summer tyre.

Continental tyres have just released their latest tyre, the new Continental PremiumContact 6. The new PremiumContact 6 replaces both the PremiumContact 5 and the SportContact 5, unifying the comfort and efficiency of the PremiumContact range, with the high performance, steering precision and grip of the SportContact.

The New Continental PremiumContact 6

The Continental SportContact 6 still exists for maximum performance in 19" and above, and the EcoContact 5 in 16" and below. The PremiumContact 6 will be available in 16" - 21", and offer a blend of performance and comfort to rival the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 and Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3.

The 2016 Auto Bild All Season tyre test has tested ten of the latest all season tyres across the usual array of dry, wet, snow, comfort and economy tests using the industry standard VW Golf wearing 205/55 R16 sized tyres.

For the second time this year, the summer-bias Michelin CrossClimate won the test overall by dominating in the dry, having the shortest wet braking and being good enough in the snow.

Here at TyreReviews we often get asked what modifications are made to OE marked tyres such as * for BMW, N for Porsche, MO for Mercedes and AO for Audi.

Usually, we have to give the very general answer of "stuff" as the data isn't made publically available, but thanks to Pirelli, we can now offer a simplified insight as to what changes major vehicle manufacturers have requested for the new Pirelli P Zero during the OE approval process.

Runflat Tyres VS Seal Tyres

Runflat tyres have a bad reputation; they’re known for having poor ride comfort, tramlining, noise, low levels of wet grip, and if you puncture them very few places will actually repair a runflat due to the risk of sidewall damage. One new runflat tyre which nearly solves the runflat comfort and grip issues is the Bridgestone DriveGuard. (full report) This new type of runflat can be fit to any vehicle, and offers a very similar general experience to a regular tyre, but will still deflate in the event of a tread puncture.

The most popular tyre on TyreReviews has finally been replaced!

Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 sidewall crop

Launched in February 2011, the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 is the most reviewed tyre on TyreReviews, and has stood the test of time well. The creatively named replacement, the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 promises to move the game on in every area, but in particular is boasting much improved wet and dry braking, lower fuel consumption and vastly better wear characteristics.

Michelin Pilot Sport 4With the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 officially going on sale at the start of 2016, but not launching to the press until later in the year, we were keen to get some miles on a set to answer the miriad of questions already appearing in our inbox.

The solution? Our long term Skoda Octavia VRS, which fortunately wears one of the launch sizies - 225/40 R18. Four tyres and 500 miles later, we're able to give our first impressions of the new Michelin Pilot Sport 4.
