Peugeot RCZ GT 156THP Tyre Review Highlights

How to transform the ride and comfort in an RCZ in one easy lesson!
My RCZ GT 156THP was fitted from new with Continentals being a 19" wheel it was expected to be a firm ride and although the grip and feedback was faultless I got tied of the road noise that progressed with wear and the excessive hard ride. Having Michelin Pilots before on a 407Coupe I knew there was a good chance they would suit the RCZ. Once the fronts were near worn out these Super Sports were fitted and what a difference, the road noise gone, no need to turn the radio up at motorway speeds and the ride was completly transformed, car still grips like S**t to a blanket in both Dry & Wet conditions but handles minor road surface imperfections without jolting your arms on the wheel! The only thing that was noticed that perhaps the Continentals had more feel of the road and a little more feedback. For wear these tyres have only been on a few months so I cannot coment but from experience they are no worse than any other premium tyre. So to conclude if you have a RCZ thats giving you a hard ride on 19"wheels get some Michelin Super Sports fitted.

purchased 4 new zeetex HP2000 vfm and have found them good at handling on wet and dry on a RCZ sports coupe and well priced

Replaced a mix of cheap tyre and continental on front of RCZ - had high hopes but the road noise was unbelievably poor. Didn't see any improvement in handling etc.

Can't really comment on wear.

Overall very disappointed - mainly due to road noise - which was one of the reasons I bought these tyres in the first place.
