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.

With the Super Sport being so new it's tough to accurately compare this model against another. However, spec wise, the Super Sport should offer more dry grip/traction along with better steering response. The Super Sport utilizes an XL carcuss while the DW, in most sizes, does not. The XL carcuss does help with response and allows one to dial in the best pressure for their needs.

IF you want maximum performance/handling, stick with the sizes that are approved for your factory wheels.

If you want to plus size I suggest going with 245/35-19's in the front with size 275/30-19 in the rear.

Surprised that you say this. The feedback of the forum members is that if you go with 245/35-19 and 275/30-19 gives better handling than the original setup. Do you believe the original setup gives better handling or have I misunderstood?
The first sentence in my last reply was worded wrong. I apologize for the confusion on that.

The wider sizes will certainly help with handling/performance. What I meant to put across is that if you are going to go with a wider plus zero set up, go with tire sizes that are approved for the intended wheels.
