Went for MPS4

Post by dances » Fri Feb 08, 2019 7:26 pm

Hi

Not posted for a while due to new baby (1st child at 43 yrs old - BIG shock - won't be having another!) but after reading some of the posts on here and having 3 slick MPSS with nails on board I thought I had best get some new rubber and went for MPS4

Just hoping they are as good as they say on here. Loved my MPSS in the dry but winter is a bit ...erm...slippy at times :shock:

Will update once fitted

Cheers

I think you'll be happy with the pilot sport 4's.

Myself, i went from pilot super sports to the pilot sport 4's and straight away enjoyed masses more wet road grip.

Dry grip is good also, maybe a smige behind the PSS's but you'd need to be pressing hard to notice.

Enjoy your new tyres and the improved manners they'll give the car.

Cheers

I figured I would have to push really hard to notice in the dry too

Interested to hear your feedback. My MPSS' are near the end of their life and have cracks on outer edges and I find their performance in the wet and cold to be rather rubbish. My previous car had Good Year Eagle F1 Asy 3' and considering that car had way more power at ~380hp they were miles better in the wet n cold and I never really hankered after an LSD. Only downside to the F1's were the sidewall flex causing less than sharp turn in. Perhaps the XL version of the F1's would solve that issue.

So for me I'm considering MP4S' or GY Eagle F1's XL.

I realise it's a totally different car, but I have Eagle F1 Asy3 on my F11 5 series and they're bloody brilliant, even in runcrap form.

That's likely my next choice too. Car has S001s on it and compared to gen one and gen two run flats, they're fine. But I have to stick to RFs for convenience's sake, and Eagles it will be.

I just went from MPSS to a full set of PS4’s.

Light and day difference in these current conditions. Way more sure-footed. Turn in feels better. Quieter. One particular road near me always saw the rears squirm and slip and little when wet. These just grip.

The MPSS’s were great in warm dry conditions but pretty woeful for 6 months of the year IMO. These are an order of magnitude better.

I have a set of Nokian winter wheels ready to fit, but this year I haven't needed to (yet). Goodyear Asym 3's have been gripping well so far, down to -2 in the dry.

I'll probably go for a set of PS4's next time to try them out, no particular reason, I just like to experiment.

EDIT: I'm definitely not suggesting Asym 3's would work on ice/slush/snow, they definitely wouldn't.

I’m going for PS4’s when my MPSS wear out. I’ve been limiting my driving over the winter but just ever so careful when out in the wet and/or below 7 degrees. I find it useful to have the tyre temps displayed and can’t wait for the warmer weather to come.

Quick question - has anyone had a mix of MPSS on the front axle and PS4 on the rear? I guess the tears wear out first so it would be inevitable to end up with this config I less the fronts as pretty low anyway, warranting a change of all four at the same time anyway. Got a few miles left in mine yet before I’ll need to change the tyres on the car that it came from as new. Thanks.

The outer edges of the fronts usually wear out first through understeer, bald as a billard ball.

Exactly what happened to mine.

It does so far feel like the higher load rating of the PS4’s help that turn in.
