Any thoughts from a fellow Z3M owner would be appreciated.
No worries, I find the PS4's brilliant and very confidence inspiring in all weathers. Good traction too. Steering feel pretty good.

I also had them on a Maserati 3200 Assetto Corsa about two years ago (when the tyre had just come out) and they were good on that too.

I was a little disappointed that I could not get the higher performance Pilot Sport 4S in this size, but no regrets on going for the PS4.

A bonus is that the sidewalls have a nice silky finish to them that somehow looks quite smart.

I had a similar situation, aged tyres when I bought her. I was actually worried that one of my wheels was bent/buckled and that was a negotiating point, but new tyres one and balanced up and it's all good which was a relief. I think a wheel weight might have come off before.

Your car looks great I have to say.

PS4s are an excellent choice of tyre. I've had them on a couple of cars, and as above they are very confidence inspiring. I've also had them on track too and the coped admirably, I didn't really feel them go 'off' like you do with some tyres
