Pilot Sport v4 VS Yokohama

Post by TMInside » Wed Jan 24, 2018 6:10 pm

Hi guys,

Just wondered your thoughts/comments on Michelin Pilot Sport v4 vs Yokohama V105 XL
What would you guys go with, would it really be a difference between them?

I've used both, mpss is a premium tyre with very good grip especially in dry, whereas yoko v105 is a reasonable budget tyre and not bad for the price but takes some warming up and nothing like grip of the Michelin

Depends what your after it to do..

Ah that's interesting, thanks. Sounds like I may as well pay the extra £27 a pop for the MPSS. I presume the wear time is about the same...?

The Eagle F1 assy 3 is probably worth considering, I'd imagine you'd find that at a price closer to the Yoko. Can you not fit 225/40s too? Might get some better prices.

As above, nobody fits 215/40/18, 225/40/18 is a much better size for the nose of a 1er.

You do realise you've stated PSS, then linked to PS4? They're quite different.

Just used them to get an idea of price.

No I didn't realise, but I've changed it. Thanks!

I gave Yoko a try and now, I'm on Yokohama Advan in 19"(225 & 255). I'm satisfied. Incredibly quiet and very good on wet roads.

Yoko is a good to very good tyre.
But...
MPS is an awesome sporty tyre. Yoko cannot beat the Michelin grip.

If you can pay the extra £, go for MPS.

Wicked thanks for sharing that. I'll see what funds I have available nearer the time although would probably go with MPS no matter what.

The price includes fitting and recycle old tyres as well :).

as said above, 225 is a better tyre size.

and you shouldn't be paying more than 10quid for fitting a tyre
