Michelin Pilot Sport II offer better grip, are less noisy and last longer than every other tires I tried.
I don't like V-design tyres like Pilot Sport I, Yoko AVS, P7000... The performance deteriorate a lot when the tyres wear out, mainly curve-grip and vibrations. For my opinion the V-design is for ricer-tuning only. The new MPS-II is the best road tyre today. It brings a new trend of design : asymmetric, different strip materials. BUT it seems this tyre is still not available in the US?!
