Tyre of choice for the most comfy ride? Michelin wins?

3 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Curious to know what you might suggest for a more comfortible ride with less emphasis on handling. Old buggers like myself tend to look lovingly at a car which doesn't want to rip your spine out of your body. I've tried Bridgestone RE001's and Kumho Ku36's and now I am riding on Michelin Pilot Super Sports and am loving them dearly. I am finding that, compared to the other two, they are much quieter while still providing exxcellent grip. And yes, they feel nicer on the road. running 275/35/zr19 up the back.

Feel free to add your thoughts. For me, the Michelin's are superb.

Agree with your comments re Michelin Pilot Super Sports.  I'ver been using them for a few years now and find the improved quietness, ride, mileage and grip much superior to the standard Bridgestones.  

Have just this week replaced my Super Sports with the Pilot Sport 4S (not to be confused with the cheaper PS4), which is the newer, upgraded tyre.  Will be curious to see how they go.  Initial impressions (after 500 kms) seem very positive.

    • RAYS 19" RIM REPAIRS
      By Stephen Sweeney · Posted
      Hi guys, Having recently purchased my 2011 370Z in immaculate condition, except gutter rash on 2 wheels, I researched a business to repair same online. Should you be in the Newcastle area I can HIGHLY RECOMMEND Rim Repair Newcastle. The business operator Lee is originally from Texas USA, and has been doing this work for 20 years in total, and his professionalism and quality of work bears this out. I was more than impressed by his work, completing the repairs with tyres on rims, masking everything meticulously before the painting process, completing same with a clear over the top.

      I had same today. I had it happen once before and found the hammer hit on the metal box got me going... I figured that was the last of it. I was not aware of the fuse pull once you get started. It happened again today and RAA towed to Main North Nissan. I now know about the fuse pull but it's too late. Quoted $2300 to fix. If Nissan won't cover it, I will pull it out and try and fix myself...

      Hi mate,   Welcome. I run a very stock 2009 370z and have had zero problems. I think it depends on how you drive it and what you do to it. The only thing I can warn you about is the very limited rear 180deg view, e.g., behind your ears back. That said, its a sports car so kinda to be expected and you will learn to cope. Cheers.
