Question Michelin PS4S availability?

No replies from Michelin re: availability of new PS4S in 225/40 18 and 285/30 18 and whether they'll be "N" rated. Anyone here had better luck finding out?

I wouldn't worry too much about the N rating with these tires.

Just buy the Michelin PS2's. Great dry performance (better than the MPSS) and very good wet traction (almost as good as the MPSS). The sizes you want are N3 rated (you don't really need N rated tires). If you upsize the rear to 295/30/18 you can also get N3 and N4. This is a common upsize on the Turbo rear tire.

The new PS4S tire will be a great all round (wet & dry and better wear rating) tire. And probably less $$ than the PS2 and MPSS.......but I would not wait for them if you need tires.

There's a write up in our local UCR "provinz" entitled "NUNC EST BIBENDUM" in "tech talk" indicating the PS4S outperforms all predecessors. I don't care about the N rating but I'm pretty sure I'm waiting for the new tire.
