Replacement tires for 360 Revisited

I have been looking for PS2's for my 360 in standard and oversize, but cannot find PS2's in both front and back. After looking at the Michelin site, it looks like maybe they are not made. Am I missing something, or are PS2's not available in the necessary sizes?

Standard: 215/45-18 and 275/40-18
Oversize: 225/40-18 and 285/40-18 (per GCalo's suggestion).

If they are not available, next best suggestion? Thanks.

Many more selections in 19" sizes but you'd have to change rims.

You can look at Continental Sport Contact 2's or 3's but the PS2's are, for my experience, a better tire.

Then there are always Pirelli's.

So a couple of alternatives to examine.

I'll look up PS2's for you a little later.

In the 285/40-18 you have:

Michelin Pilot Sport (Nor PS2)
Pirelli PZero Rosso

In the 225/40-18 you have:

Michelin Pilot Sport (Non PS/2)
There is the PS/2 but don't mix with PS
Pirelli PZero Rosso

My suggestion is that if you want to stay with 18" go with the Pirelli's.

Bridgestones are available but I would not use Bridgestone if they were given to me. Think Bridgestone/Firestone; think exploding tires; think products liability!

They came on my BMW and were the worse tires I ever experienced! Were promptly replaced with PS/2's.

So now you know.

Thanks for the suggestions

I will probably go with Perreli's. I appreciate the research. As an aside, I am 30 miles from hitting the 9000 mile mark. I bought the car with 7544 at the end of January. Weekend morning joy rides are adding up, but I am basically just a child with a new toy.

Pirelli's will be a good choice since you are staying with 18's.

I have Michelins on the 360 and have been very happy with them.

Stock size or oversize? Also, where did you buy them from? HAving a hard time locating Sports in the right sze. Thanks.

Boxer may have the Michelin Pilot Sport not the PS2.

I did not think the PS2's were available in the 18" sizes.

I have 19" rims w/PS2's.

Fantastic tires.
