I'm not sure why the price is cheaper but I wouldn't use that as a measurable on the performance of the tire.

The RE-11 is more competition/performance based for someone who wants maximum dry grip and does the occasional Auto-X.

The Super Sport is more of an all-around summer tire and is classified as an ultra High Performance Sport Summer Tire. The Pilot Super sport may not grip quiet as well as the RE-11 but it will last longer and have superb handling.

The Michelin mail-in rebate is applicable to USA and Canada residents.

We ship VIA UPS and we charge all Canadian Tariff Fee's up front to ensure faster delivery tires and to guarantee no further charges to you once the packages arrive. The Tariff Fee per tire for passanger performance tires is only $40.00.

The $40.00 per tire Tariff Fee covers everything to your door. There are no additional or hidden fee's you would have to pay.

If you have the tires shipped somewhere here in the states, you wouldn't have to pay any Tariff Fee's.
