    Conti vs Michelin

    Got a loaner Box this week. Has 18"s with Contis on, has done 2k miles. Mine has 18"s with Michelins. Comparing the two, the Michelins seem to have much better dry grip on cornering and straight-line braking, and squeal less when grip is lost. Haven't noticed huge differences in other areas.

    Re: Conti vs Michelin

    i tested both of them as well, the PS2s are a lott better!

    Re: Conti vs Michelin

    i found the contis to be harder, but better turn in and directional stability...

    Quite possibly, but I don't have like-for-like suspension to compare.

    Re: Conti vs Michelin

    I would never put Contis on a car over Michelin - i just don;t have any confidence in Contis

    Porsche-Jeck has been using Continentals on his 987S and seems to be happy with them

    See discussion over here:

    The Contis are o.k., but the Michelins are more performance oriented. Though the new Michelins (mind you, the tire makers change the compounds every other year in order to optimise them) seem to be a bit more wet performance oriented than the previous generation, hence the pervious gen could be described as "sportier" (on dry tarmac) - that's at least the consensus of Sportauto and other sources.
    Normally I would switch to Michelin right now, but as the front tires still are pretty good (5mm profile) I'll go for another season with the Contis before I'll replace all four tires next year.
