Got 4S on 2 cars right now and have used PS and PS2s for years on too many different cars to count both on and off the track.

I cannot discern any grip difference whatsoever driving around town. Can you? Are you doing skid pad simulations in parking lots? Just curious where people are feeling differences which would seem only perceptible at the limits and even then perhaps not something you could feel by the seat of your pants unless you do a butt load of high performance on track driving and have become sensitive to very subtle cues.

Unless you are going to a bunch of HPDEs, price point or perhaps tread width and weight would be the dictating factors. Both are great tires and would give the same level of performance for wet and dry driving on public streets.

I am considering a set of four MPSS, but I'm concerned that in a couple of years, when I have to replace only the rear tires, Michelin will have stopped producing the MPSS, and I'll be forced to do four new tires again. Anyone know how long the MPSS will be around?

Valid question. While I'm no advocate of mixing and matching tires, I don't think it would be a very big deal. For example; having older MPSS on the front and two new MP4Ss on the rear.

Reassuring to hear the positive feedback re: 4S. Just ordered a set for my new BBS wheels.

I agree. Mixing SS and 4S on rear is less troublesome to me than having fronts with 15k or so with new rears, but I have been guilty of that as well from time to time on cars seeing only street use.

@ Clubber- I think I read on another forum that the rating should have happened already. I do know that when I ordered my tires in August the tire specific page on Michelin's site featured a Porsche. That site has now changed as I tried to get a screen capture for this post. I can tell you that roads in New Orleans are really , REALLY bad and that as a DD I have not wondered a minute about these tires on my P car in either normal conditions or the monsoon rains we get down here.

I doubt that the N-rating will be available for 19" rims and 997 sizes, but I could be wrong.

point well made on the specific sizing. 2018 tires probably wont care about 2005 MY requirements.
