Driving on mostly country roads for 7000 spirited miles
Most grippy tire you can buy for this tire size. I had the Hankook S1 Evo3 before, they were already very good, but this takes it to another level, almost semi slick performance. The only downside is that they wear pretty fast, I think they will do about 25000km.

Michelin Pilot Super Sport rated 50% while driving a Mercedes Benz C63 AMG
Driving on a combination of roads for 4000 spirited miles
Had on a C63s Coupe and I find them to be absolutely horrible. Zero grip. Zero everything.

Driving on mostly town for 5000 average miles
I found tyres safe with an option to drive the flat tyres. Why this is not undelined by a producer? Also on a 4 wheels drive car the impression from driving is very good.

Bridgestone Potenza Sport rated 84% while driving a Renault Laguna 3
Driving on a combination of roads for 15000 spirited miles
I had it as front tyres for about 4 months on a modified Renault laguna making around 220hp and that's how much they lived. The dry grip was excellent and even the wet was ok. If the wear wasn't so bad, would recommend it.

Continental ExtremeContact Sport rated 91% while driving a Mazda MX5
Driving on mostly country roads for 30000 spirited miles
These tires are awesome. took them to the tail of the dragon and stuck to the road like glue. Also, road the dragon in the rain, and the grip still felt great. After my runs i can see a bunch of stuff stuck to the tires so they get real sticky when warm. Will buy again next summer

Michelin Pilot Sport 4 rated 74% while driving a SEAT Ibiza Cupra 1.4 TSI
Driving on a combination of roads for 25000 easy going miles
I use 215/40/17 87Y Michelin PS4s in my 2013 Ibiza CUPRA vehicle in the summer season, high performance summer tire for the summer heat on the Mediterranean coastline in the South of Turkey, it provides very safe handling even at high speeds on dry or heavy rainy roads, very safe after the tires are warmed up. it grips well, grips the road well, very fast and superior grip steering response on mountainous and tight curvy roads between cities, super slip on the panic brake on the dry city road when cold, ABS is activated very often, but I think the reason is because it is a low profile sporty tire with 40 sidewalls, about 25,000 since 2017 as a summer set of them. I use mileage, I have a separate set of tires for winter. I think that MICHELIN does not produce summer tires as long-lasting as winter tires, unfortunately PS4s were subject to rapid deformation despite low mileage and became old. I will replace them with ASYM 6s in the summer of 2023.

Bridgestone Potenza Sport rated 90% while driving a Porsche Cayman
Driving on mostly country roads for 1200 spirited miles
By far this is the best tyre I've ever owned, so far. I drove my Cayman only on mountain twisty roads, as that was my "sunday car" and fitting those tyres completely changed my car. With Potenza Sport you get a semi-slick tyre looking like a "normal" UHP everyday tyre which you can run silently on a motorway or enjoy in the worst (or best) racing scenario. I couldn't believe such a sporty (steering feeling is amazing), grippy (no matter whether tyre is cold, warm or overheated, it GRIPS!) and yet comfortable tyre coud exist on earth!

Bridgestone Potenza Sport rated 83% while driving a Porsche Cayman s
Driving on a combination of roads for 2000 spirited miles
Outstanding UUHP tyre. Sharp on the steering with excellent feedback in both the dry and wet. Grip is exceptional once warmed up (takes a few miles to build temperature) and the performance on a wet road is incredible.

Downsides are the tyre has high road noise and transmits sudden shocks into the chassis rather than absorbing in the tyre, not too bad if you have decent damping but something to be aware of if you value comfort and noise. Very much a "sporty" tyre for everyday driving without being too track focussed (ie normal road driving gets enough heat into the tyre to "switch on" the grip)

Cannot comment on wear as only put 2k miles on, but good to see tread depth and the small about of sipes go all the way to the base of the tyre which suggest performance should stay reasonably consistent over the life of the tyre. Tyre wear seems average for a UUHP tyre based on current wear rates.

Continental ContiSportContact 5 P rated 53% while driving a Mercedes Benz C207
Driving on mostly country roads for 3000 easy going miles
Hi , May seem strange but I would not purchase Continental tyres in the short term but I really like the 5p. Tyre wear OK overall performance in both the wet and dry is really good , should have been a good tyre but maybe does not suit my car , the new 7 looks in a different l?league but at present not for me. Reason : from my experience the the tyres last for twelve and structural issues occur.
