Now have another issue: both Michelin and Pirelli state their new super tires must not suffer cold temperatures which can break down the compounds added to their tires and cause cracking. Must be warmed first. Last two winters ago my 575M spent in my unheated garage, last winter with my Maserati in an unheated storage facility 16 miles north of my home. Air temperatures - not wind chill - each winter reached -15 F to -20 F. Wondering if permanent damage can result. I am beginning to believe that if I can find a set of the immediately preceding Michelin Pilot Super Sport from the end of the production run to avoid having dated tires when they go on the car, I may be safer. Clearly they are excellent tires and I'm not tracking the Maranello nor driving so aggressively as perhaps even to notice the difference.
Thoughts, guys? and gals?
