Anyone tried Michelin Pilot Sport Cup2 yet?

I am on Pirelli Trofeo R but will try the new Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 later this season. On the Scuderia I'm running 245/35-19 in front and 285/35-19 at the rear. Has anyone actually tested these tires yet?

Johan- They were optional on C6 Z06 Corvettes and standard on ZR1s so you might check some of the Corvette sites. The new C7 Z06 features them, too.

On magazine tests with the Z06s fitted with the SC2, cornering forces and lap times have been phenomenal.

Have you had a chance to try them on you own car yet? Any comment in what way they feel and works in track conditions?

Hi Johan,

I know that Michelin site isn't showing these tire sizes on their web. But as a matter of fact I have these tires at home in my garage so they actually do exist :-)

Michelin is rolling out a large range of tire sizes now so I guess they could be slow in updating their web information.

Since you are in Italy you can get them from Compra pneumatici online – gommadiretto.it
I just did a search in Italy and both tires sizes were in stock, ready to be ordered.


This is the latest list of Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 I got from my Swedish distributor.

Johan,
thanks so much for the information, I thinked that the web sites of principal brands are updated early, but i thinked wrong ....
For example when i will replace tyres on my hgtc i would like the P0 corsa but in their web site there are not available .. probably the same case as michelin ....
In your PSC2 lists those size are available (255/35 +305/30 19) , interesting ... i think PSC2 is better than P0 corsa, what do you think? You had tested P0 corsa?
For street circulation and wet i think there are no difference between their, is correct?
thanks in advice

Johan,
I forgotten an other question, what do you think about dunlop Maxx Race?
Between PSC2, P0 corsa and Maxx Race what is the better for your experience?


thanks

A few notes on the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup2. At my last track day lap times were at least 2s slower on this technical 1 minute race track compared to Pirelli Trofeo R. For track use, there is just no comparison. As a compromise for use in the wet I am sure it is ok, but if you want to set track records the Michelin need to stay at home...

A couple of laps at Kinnekulle, great weather and perfect conditions :-)

Johan, I'm impressed how loud you can hear these tires in each corner. Is it the track surface or these SC2 tires?

It is the track surface They put on new asphalt 6 month ago and it screams in all the corners. It is actually better today than it was 4 week ago... It will get better as we put more rubber into it.
