I am looking forward to new summer TIRES (Sorry no wheels) which can provide low noise inside and a little bit comfort, the MichelinSuperSport didn´t convinced me so that i would buy them again....

Sorry, of course TIRES and not WHEELS are asked, was my failure....., yes, i know the acoustic technology already, but i would have expected more quiet of them...

Not summer tires but I love my Continental DWS for the 20" wheels I run in the summer. Had them mounted last week and it was night and day in terms of ride comfort and noise. Just amazing compared to the stock tires.

I know already the acoustic tires and they should be low but in practice they did not perform better than my winter tires without this damping......?

I took 255/35-R20 Conti SC 6 now, to have a bit more sidewall height thus comfort; no remarkable difference YET vs the Michelin PS 4S (I used same size due to ****hole roads in Hungary) Overall wheel diameter is +7mm vs OE, which is not causing any issues (rubbing etc.) but might give a slightly more comfy ride...maybe its just in my brain. :)

I would stick with the Michelin PSS with the acoustic tech option.

Also, if you have not gotten close to 30K out of your Michelin PSS you may want to invoke the tire warranty mileage option. THis what I recently got from Michelin customer service.

Hello Duane,

Thanks for contacting the Michelin Consumer Care Team. My name is Evelyn and I look forward to helping you out. You’ve been assigned case number 15588679. This will allow my team to quickly pull your claim details if any further questions arise.
Let’s see how we can help.
Regarding your email stating:

To Whom It May Concern,
Question on Tire Warranty
I have a set of Michelin Pilot Sport Tires that came as OEM tires on my 2017 Volvo S60 Polestar. During my 15k oil service at the Volvo dealer, the tech indicated that my tires were at 2/32 on the front and 1/32 on the backs. He advised me to look into any possible tire warranty due to premature tire wear. My car was purchased back in Nov 2017 and has had two oil changes and two tire rotations at 7450 miles and at 14900 miles during this period. Also, I had my car aligned at Firestone when the car had about 9300 miles. I read on the Michelin website and was informed that these tires have a 30k mile warranty and I wanted to know how do I go about with a warranty claim on the tires since I did not purchase the tires from any tire dealer in the Houston/Conroe area. Please advise on this issue at hand as soon as possible.
Thanks
Duane Vincent

Update from Michelin and Discount Tire. Michelin Tire Mileage warranty will cover 50% of the new tire cost. Original cost per tire $250 per DT pricing and I will end up paying out of pocket $125 per tire for a grand total (includes install and taxes) of $632. I am assuming that these tires will never make it beyond the 20k mile mark. I will definitively start looking for an alternative tire once these new ones wear down in about two years.

That's really pretty fair. I should probably look into it with my OEM tires. I run winter tires so I probably only have 13k maybe on mine and they're pretty much gone. Thanks for sharing.

The same situation with my Mich tires, will never work for 30K? In addition i never got the impression that they really work well on the S60 2018P, despite the acoustic they weren´t quiet and they didn`t sticked better on the road than other brands????

FYI,

If you want to claim warranty on your OEM Michelin tire the key factor is that the tire wear be some were below the 3/32 or 2/32 on each tire. My tires were at 1/32, two of them at 2/32 and one at 3/32. You also have to show that tire rotation was done within the 6 -8k range. In my case, I am somewhat anal retentive with logging my service, so no problems with that. I only got two rotation out of my tires 7500 and 14900. The DT manager was indicating to me that all the tires had the center treads worn out, which he claims it towards tire over-inflation. I explain to him that Volvo claims that we need to run these tires at 38 psi. He was recommending to lower my tires to 36 or 37 psi to prevent the center tread wear. The s60 feels much better now and no more front wheel hopping while making tight turns into my driveway. Manager at DT also gave me a Michelin rebate form for $70 so the final price with the mail in rebate discount card was $558. Is not a bad deal, but definitively I need to find another tire option down the road for this car.:whistle:

Thanks for your information, nice, that you could arrange a deal with M DT......, i can´t show the change from back to front each 6k range. But what i can confirm is that the pressure with 38psi(2.6bar) is definitly to high for the S60, you see that in the middle of the tire more arbrasion, you really should as you noted take about 36psi. Really bad that P did not recommend always the best for the car, so i think a PZEROTM will perform much better on this car with 36psi....
