MPS4 or Super Sports

Hi,

My newly acquired M5 will need its rear tyres replacing in the next 2-3k, it currently has Super Sports on it (20Ē).

I see people are rating the PS4sís but I canít seem to find star rated ones? Iím I looking wrongly?


Thanks in advance!

Get the PS4S all day long. Don't think they do them in star but don't bother with that. Get the 305s as they fit perfect and are much better than 295 PSS. Cheapest place I found is camskill.

I have had PS on my previous car and although they were great at the time there is no comparison with 4S which I am running on M5 for the last 1 year. The difference is more pronounced on damp roads but even on dry the grip is phenomenal and you will feel it.

4S is the grippiest tyre I have ever had, period. Although, it is a summer tyre but it holds well in winters if you are down south. Up north, and I would seriously consider a winter set on a monster like M5.

I just bought a set from Camskill (although I foolishly went for 295 rather than 305 because I didn't know that the 305s fitted when I bought them) and they were indeed the cheapest.

Damn, I did mention the 305 fitment in my post. Anyway 295s should do a good job still, way better than PSS either way.

It's my own fault. I thought that they were only available in 20" but that was my bad searching. I'm still very pleased with them and I'll know the next time.

On track yes but I won't recommend cup 2s as daily driver in the U.K. they are useless in the rain and sometimes dangerous on a RWD 550bhp car.
4S are perfect (if there is one) summer tyres with great wet grip as well.

I drive my tuned m6 with cup 2s in the rain without issue, but do so driving cautiously. The 4s is definitely the best overall daily tire in terms of longevity and overall performance for all season use.

All season in CA yes, but not everywhere
