Thinking of changing to these from my potenzas , although there are lots of tread they are cracking (not deep ) around the tread this is dodgy right ? Does any one use Michelin Pilotsport 3 ? If so how u getting on with them ? I looking for a tyre that is suitable for everyday driving but on the occasion I want to play hard I won't fall of on the first corner :( . Any advice will be grateful :)

I stand by the Continental ContiSport3

They are decent in the wet, and more than hold the road in the dry!
Also rated first in EvoMag's FWD test ;)

I've read good reviews about them over on STOC, though I've got no personal experience with them.

I read good reviews also but when I come to speak to tyre fitter he said the ones on my car are the best as last longer and take more load but reviews not quite back that up so confused.com lol

I have Pilotsport3 on my car. All I can say - perfect. When I installed them,didn't believe how quiet they are, like no other before. Also they have highest MPG tested from ADAC - very low coefficient of (word missing me) - that is why have "green" symbol. Greatest at all sides, and most expensive from all on market for good reason....

I have them on my car for last 3 months and seem great for everyday use. Have no experience of them on track, but in the harsh conditions and slippery corners I have experienced they have not let me down.

My previous tyres were crap and came with the car when I purchased it and even tho I wasnt driving that hard I noticed an improvement. The previous ones were something like Elang perdera or something like that and were made by some North Korean communist lol.

Hehe, thanks Woette. Yes, I mean to tell "drag", but at that time I couldn't remember that english word...
I had Dunlop SportMaxx tyres before that Michelin. I was so really amazed how quiet are they...

Some text about:
"The Pilot Sport 3 is Michelin's Max Performance Summer tire developed as Original Equipment for premium high-performance sports cars, coupes and sedans. Based on Michelin expertise from over a dozen consecutive Le Mans 24-Hour Race victories, the Pilot Sport 3 is an eco-friendly sport tire with Green X branded on its sidewalls to guarantee it offers one of the best energy efficiency levels on the market. The Pilot Sport 3 is designed to balance tread life, fuel efficiency and road gripping performance in dry and wet conditions. However, like all summer tires, they are not intended to be driven in near freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice.

The Pilot Sport 3 features Michelin's Green Power Compound to combine grip on wet surfaces with fuel savings and greater longevity. This compound is molded into an asymmetric tread design to enhance dry road response and cornering while Michelin's Anti Surf System combines an optimized profile and tread grooves to cut through puddles and standing water to resist hydroplaning and deliver shorter wet braking distances.

The tire's internal structure features Michelin's Programmed Distortion tire architecture that uses digital technology to enhance driving enjoyment and steering precision. Twin steel belts reinforced with spirally wrapped polyamide are combined with a polyester carcass to enhance ride quality and high-speed durability."

I had Pilotsport 3s. A good all-round tyre with excellent grip but not as good as the legendary 2s. In particular the sidewalls aren't that stiff, which makes for rather imprecise steering compared to the Potenzas. Personally, I wouldn't choose these.
