Passenger Car Summer Max Performance Tyres Tyre Review Highlights

Pirelli P Zero PZ4 rated 97% while driving a Volkswagen Golf Mk7 Sportwagen Alltrack 1.8TSI
Driving on a combination of roads for 25000 average miles
My golf is lowered with kW coilovers and with Pirelli p zero pz4 tyres. I had Michelin ps4 s before so i tried the pirellis now and What a diffrence. More grip in dry and a Hugh diffrence in the Wet. Aquaplaning happend to often in higher speeds with the ps4 s. P zero feels more stable in latheral forces to. I highly recomend Pirelli

Michelin Pilot Sport 4 rated 84% while driving a Mazda MX5
Driving on a combination of roads for 15000 spirited miles
So i use my tires on my daily mx5 NC, it heavy modified and before covid i used it daily for work. On the weekends nice fast drives and 4 times per year track driving or autocross. What do I think off it? I think its the best tire ever owned. Let me explain why: The dry handling is great, loads of grip and when over the limit very controllable. When sliding or drifting the tires does not kill you all of a sudden. Its always keeps in form no surprises In the wet its a extension of the dry, you can pretty much still race around without any TCS or abs moments because the tires have so much grip understeer only comes when driving crazy speeds and heavy rain is also fine. Since i use them on a MX5 with a weight of 1 ton, aquaplaning is always an option because of the wide tires + low weight. Braking is amazing, and you feel save. Driving on the highway in rain and having to brake hard breaks no sweat. They do wear faster then budget tires, but i drive way faster then other people so getting 15.000 miles+ out of a set that also did circuit driving is pretty good. The price? Yes they are expensive, but it's the only connection to the road and its makes the car so much better. Even tho a set on a MX5 225/45/17 costs between €500/600 i still think its not that expensive if you know what the tires can give you in fun, safety and life. 10/10 would buy again. Are you focused on more track driving? Get the cup2s i have them on the MX5 now for track driving and daily driving, in the winter they can get slippery but above 10 degrees celcius its fine. Also even tho its a semi, it still does good in the rain. Just be alert., and don't drive like a maniac. Cheers!

Bridgestone Potenza S001 rated 31% while driving a BMW X4 20d X drive
Driving on mostly town for 10000 average miles
BMW X4 Runflats. 69 plate. 10,000 mls 3mm left on both fronts. Felt I was driving on air . No feedback. With so much wear you would have expected the tyres to have stuck to the road. Exactly the opposite! Worst of both worlds for wear and grip. Costing approx 200 each fitted. Definitely not buying again.

Pirelli P Zero rated 93% while driving a Porsche 986 Boxster S
Driving on mostly country roads for 11 spirited miles
Grip, tracking, handling & feedback superb. Wear acceptable given exceptional performance. Some (premature?) perishing visible from age, but handling not noticeably affected. Mechanic advised typical of PZeros. Persuaded to try Toyos (front & rear) which regretfully NOT in same league. Will switch back ASAP.

Bridgestone Potenza Sport rated 87% while driving a Volkswagen Tiguan 2.0 TSI 200HP
Driving on a combination of roads for 350 average miles
A sporty tire, not very comfortable, with great steering/handling, stable at higher speeds (around 200 km/h) where the sidewall is hard (tougher than the Continental ContiWinterContact TS830 P, I checked that), the rim protection is really big and the noise is acceptable.

Bridgestone Potenza S007A rated 63% while driving a Mercedes Benz E Class AMG
Driving on a combination of roads for 4000 spirited miles
When warm these tires have excellent dry forwards grip (traction). By warm I mean 25C or higher ambient temperature in summer after a decent drive to warm them up. Otherwise they are terrible in colder temperatures and the traction is poor in the wet. I realise my car has a lot of torque (RWD) but trying to gently accelerate out of an intersection or a corner is a receipe for sliding in all but the best conditions, starting in second gear is the only option in the wet. Braking seems average unless it is hot. This might be a good tire for the tropics but for USA, New Zealand, UK and Europe I would avoid. Definitely won't be buying them again, next will be either pilot sport 4 or maybe the new bridgestone sport although I am worried this one might suffer in colder weather also. I have had RE002, RE003, RE050 before which were all better.

Bridgestone Potenza Sport rated 90% while driving a BMW M140i
Driving on a combination of roads for 1000 spirited miles
Changed the Potenza S001 RTFs to the new Sports quite recently. After one track day, one long road trip and a few weeks of daily commuting the observations as follows: - on track the grip is better, but perhaps the RTF S001 had a harder structure as at times the new Sports feel a bit ’wobbly’ when really pushing to corners.. - on road trip and with fast driving the tyre is fantastic , good grip and stability - daily driving way more comfortable vs the S001 RTFs sensitivity to road surface

Bridgestone Potenza Sport rated 91% while driving a BMW 120d M sport
Driving on mostly motorways for 3000 spirited miles
Its an excellent tyre with brutal grip on dry and wet roads. Not realy comfortable like a ps4s michelin but in my opinion feels better on dry roads on high speeds. Bridgestone has finaly made uhp tyre that means buissnes..

Vredestein Ultrac Vorti rated 91% while driving a Audi A6 S line, LeMans 2.0 TDi 170
Driving on a combination of roads for 7500 spirited miles
I don't care thaat much about wear rate but these tyres are signficantly better then all my previous tyres: PZero, Kumho PS91 and Michelin PS4. What i appreciate the most is the road confort and the feedback you get. It decreases the noise and feel impact with bumps and holes. Maybe it's not as precise as the PS4 but they have a better price and on country roads they feel better. Highway driving is a pleasure, you feel the good connection with the roads no matter the if it's raining or it's 40 degrees Celsius. On my 1.7 tons car the recomended(by Audi) front pressure is 2.7Bar and on the back is 2.3Bar. I keep them at 2.8 and 2.4 Bar and it's great. I Know this model has been for a long time in the market so i bought them last spring. So far i have driven 12000km and i still have 6.2mm left. In May 2021 there is no stock in Romania and i am glad i got them last year. Vredestein Ultrac Vorti is the best tyre i had so far. Safe trips and no events while driving!

Michelin Pilot Sport 4 rated 67% while driving a Renault Megane RS265
Driving on a combination of roads for 13000 spirited miles
The tyre comfortable and has an OK level of dry grip. It's is a perfect fit for a fast tourer or a car that mostly drives the highways. However when i took my Megane RS out of the city for a ride i found the tyres very limiting as the temperature was getting higher. I put them on in July and when I was swapping them for winters in November the fronts were already nearly dead. I swapped them with the rear set for the next season, but after a month i my rear axle started drifting badly. So after 10 months I'm buying a new set. Note: The retailer i bought the PS4 from made a mistake as I ordered the PS4S originally, but as tyres were already on the car when I found out i decided to give them a shot. And they proved not to be a good fit for an aggressive driving style.
