Michelin PSS is the tire of the moment. Excellent grip and have great mileage. I have those on my 13 M5 and I can't see anything going on any of my cars for now.

Which Ferrari? We can't compare mid engine cars to front mount engine cars.

Do you notice any pulling from the wider fronts when going over uneven road surfaces?

Looks like after my trip to sturgis, my rear tires are gonzo. Time for new ones, thanks for the info in this thread.

Seriously though your speedo will read 75mph and you'll be doing 79.22mph or in my case the speedo reads 100mph when I'm doing 105.6mph.

All that was based on the rear tires feeding the speedo. If it's the front tires then The GY's and Michelins are only .2" different going from 285's to 295's.
I went from 28.75 OD rear to 27.8 rear and there was only like .5mph difference. 70 mph was actually70.5 and so on.

I've been running the Super Sports for a while now in the 295/315 configuration. They have excellent wear and grip very well!







You can find tires that perform better but nothing that will perform and wear like these!

Kind regards,
