PALM SPRINGS, CALIF.—Michelin's got a new performance tire out. Called the Pilot Sport 4S (PS4S), it's a direct replacement for the company's current Pilot Super Sport (PSS) and Pilot Sport 2 (PS2) tires, and it's very good. The funny thing is that, in a way, it may be too good.
High-performance tires go on performance cars; sports cars, muscle cars—nowadays even SUVs. Since time began, they have been designed with one overriding goal in mind: more grip.
