The tyre you are referring to are the PS4S not to be confused with PS4. The PS4S is an entirely different tyre made in the Motorsports factory in France from compounds similar to the latest Cup2 tyres also made in the same factory. They are the new replacement for the Supersports but only made in 19" plus fitment. They are a 300TW road tyre that seem to fit between the SS and Cup2 in terms of ultimate grip and handling.

For your 18" you have the choice of the older PS2 or the later Supersport. I've used both extensively in 18" fitment in your sizes, and although they are both good the SS would certainly be my preference....

The PS4 is positioned below the PS2 and the SS as a general purpose road tyre etc. the price reflects this....

Thanks for that Macca, very useful and removes my confusion!
Let me know if you're planning another group buy.

Cheers.

I certainly will, although at this stage looks like it will probably be early next year before we do this again...

Just wanted to say hi to the rest of NZ member Enjoying my 15 981 GTS as my first Porsche for now, such a fantastic car in my opinion.
I am also looking for a 997 for extra seats and to sell the 981 to save some $.
Is there a local Porsche group or gather in Wellington? Would be great to meet other enthusiast as well.

G'day, this thread seems to have gone quite dormant. Try contacting Powerhaus - expect they will have local knowledge.

Yes, the main posters have moved to Facebook where they can see who is lurking, but even then they are a lot less active than before. Powerhaus is a good start as is the Porsche Club.
