Hey guys,

It's time to get new tires for summer season. Now I have stock Pirelli scorpion verde AS, but it looks little worn.

In my country we have no speed limit so every summer I speed up +200mph. That means I can choose only 2 options with correct speed index Y:

  • PIRELLI P ZERO RUN FLAT
  • Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+

I really like actual stock Pirelli scorpion, it's much better than I had before for BMW, and I want to try model PIRELLI ZERO, but a dealer has only last 4pcs which made in 2018. It's brand new, but it's stored over than 4 years, not sure if a rubber is still good.

And the 2nd option Michelin is stock, produced in 2021, but I've never used it. I heard Michelin brakes worse than Pirelli.

Please tell me your ideas through your experience.

Hankook ventus evo3. I switched from the pirelli p-zeros. I think the hankooks out perform the p-zeros.
But if your only choice is between pirelli and michelin, i would choose michelin any day of the week.

I am pretty sure you won't be able to get any Michelin AS3 as they have moved on to the AS4 and they are currently not produced in the stock size. The 305/35/20s are in production for the AS4. I work around a lot of construction and have the road hazard and Discount Tire had no AS3s to replace the one I had with a nail and said Michelin will not have any until around May/June if at all.

I checked our local dealer and they have Michelin Latitude Sport 3 only for size 295/45/20. AS4 is available for 305/40/20 and 295/40/20 only.

Just thought I'd throw this out there...
I have a set of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ on order through Summit Racing, which they are saying they can still get, with an ETA May 2022.

Was at Discount Tire for the daily driver and just asked about the A/S 3+ to see what they would say and he said why not get the A/S 4's? Low and behold he knew what he was talking about! If you can wait, looks like June 2022 is the ETA.
I hear they made the 4's a little more "comfortable", so I figure the 3+ will still be an improvement over the oem runflats with the LEAST comprise in handling?

305/40/20 eh?
The 2018 Pirelli if you can get at a low price might be worth the discount otherwise I’m a Michelin fan.
I’m still a fan of performance snow and performance summer tires on 2 sets of wheels if you can swing it.

You might try pirelli zero All season run flats. I think that is the name it is a new tire from pirelli last year and I have been running them for about a year with no appreciable treadwear. You might not like the Michelin because of the tread pattern all lack of tread pattern really. If they are great tires for a lighter car like a Corvette. I ran them on my Callaway Corvette and took them off in favor of Michelin All seasons to run all year round. I personally like the nimble feel that the vehicle gives when it has tread on the tires especially on unexpected corners. If you know what I mean.

Run flat is always etyer for highspeed (blowout protection) i speed also....and a absolute nightmare is a blowout that will send you in a situation....im on stock size & wheel...i may do a staggered set up this summer same size wheel wider rear 11 or 10 1/2 & front 10 for a kickazz grip

Top speed today was 158mph on 87north couldn't go higher if i passed a trooper that mean i cannot stop for him so i slowed down....lets just say a M5 got his head chopped off and as for the tire go with a run flat staggered set-up for blowout safety

I live in Germany and have the Michelin Latitude sports for summer tires. Could not be happier. They can't get these in the U.S.. Been to the Ring and on the Autobahn daily and they are excellent IMO. 👌

Well guys, while I was comparing, the last set of michelin was gone. Will check options from Europe, may be I can get it faster than from the US.

I found Pirelli P ZERO runflat in Germany for 410 eur = $451/each in stock. I think it's good offer. Will update how it looks when I get it.

They are the exact same as what comes with the Trackhawk. I had to change these tires prematurely because the tread went out of round. The TH became undrivable because of the vibration. I really don’t recommend this tire. Even the Porsche forums complain about this tire.
I would still go with the Hankooks Ventus Evo3

my stock has Verde All Season. P Zero is chosen because it's exact summer version, recommended for high speed. Anyway I need run flat option, michelin and hankook have no one.
