However, if you prefer a stiffer sidewall, the OEM Bridgestone RE50A is pretty good.

    Here's a good comparo between the PS4 vs PS4S. In a Focus no less ;)

    Yup, I saw that vid last might.
    I do prefer a stiffer sidewall, but at the same time this car is pretty harsh as it is, so it should be ok. I can inflate them a little more if needed to get that stiffer feeling

    Pilot sport 4's are pretty good, the 4s has a much stiffer sidewall. This is a great video comparing them!

    And that seems like a pretty good price!

    I wondered how these compared to the firehawks/s.drives/khumo ecsta in sidewall, grip etc.
    I tried cross-shopping them, but not much is written about the PS4 in the U.S.
    I will be the guinea pig, no worries.

    My experience with anything Michelin has always been stellar, so I'm not concerned.

    While I did love the potenzas, they didn't seem to hold up long and to the abuses of being parked outside in the cold. I bought my FiST with 2,500mi and 2 of the oem tires had cracks in them. A month later, I got a sidewall bubble and I didn't hit any pothiles, just regular highway driving. I mostly blame the PO for the former, as I would not leave a summer tire on the car in the winter, but still am surprised.

    I actually thought about replacing the 2 bad ones, but they are CRAZY expensive now, and rather not buy them used.

    When they say 7pm, they mean it. I tried to buy a Hotchkis bar right at 7pm (didn't realize it required a phone app to use and had to load it up) and it expired =(
