I've also had other tires in the past and none grip like the Super Sports, not even the so called sticky BFG KDW-2s I had on my 98. I cannot speak on the PS 4S tires as I've yet to own a pair. Even though it's illegal, I routinely do 100+ (I'll deny it though ) and I prefer a good set of tires contacting the road. Plus, I always try and buy "Made in the USA" when I can
There is no doubt that Michelin makes great street tires. It goes without saying.

People are backhandedly disputing the run-flat thing vs non. A safety issue. That has been discussed here too many times.

That is a matter of choice.

When the run-flats start to get oldt, you will definitely know. The back of the car will start to move with the grooves on the road.

A little sketchy.

There are benefits and trade-offs with everything.

The only comparison most people can make is there old worn tires to brand new ones.
Vendors web sights have plenty of user reviews for anyone shopping but there seems to be a consensus here of a few popular brands.

I think the real issue is the lack of choices for "17 tires.
there was no debate the OP just said he loves his new PS 4's and those of us who have them agree !!!!!!!!!!!!
