Given 94% while driving a Opel Astra H OPC (235/35 R19 W) on a combination of roads for 15 spirited miles
In my car they last 20 to 27k once they heat up they roll the car that much grip..i had to install new anti-roll bars front and near to compensate the grip!! Get them while stocks last i think michelin is discontinuing!!! what a shame..Need to work them hard though..only in standing water you have a problem

These Pilot Sport Cups are damn near perfect sports tyres. Once heated up amazing amounts of grip, yet still very adjustable on the limit allowing a good amount of oversteer. Glued to the road is a term often overused... not this time!

Surprisingly good in the wet once warm. Be very careful in standing water.

Not as cheap as something like an R888 but you pay for quality and they'll probably last a bit longer.

I manage around 7-8 trackdays on a set which is more than I can say for a lot of track tyres. As you'd imagine the cup sport is really grippy in the dry and actually niec and progressive, not really snappy like some people describe the cheaper trackday rubber.

If you can get heat into them they're not awful in the wet but it's quite hard to build up enough heat. I really wouldn't recommend them as a primary road tyre.

Very sensitive to the correct tyre pressures. Will be buying again even if they cost a bit more.
