2022-01-27 - When do you expect to review the new Pilot Sport 5 tires?
I'm working hard to be the first on the new PS5, but realistically it's not possible to test before spring so I'm expecting March time.
2022-04-10 - Why PS5, compared to Asym 6, can be both average in wet grip/handling and excellent at aquaplaning resistance? Intuitively, a tire that better resists aquaplaning performs better in wet conditions, right?
Wet handling uses around 1 mm of water which doesn't really challenge a new tires aquaplaning properties so is more about the mechanical grip of the compound, where aquaplaning tests are usually conducted in 8 mm of water which is all about tread design.
2022-06-14 - I have kia stinger with pilot sport 4 tires and had a punctured front left tire. I cannot find the ps4 to buy anymore just the pilot sport 5. Will it be ok to switch both front tires to ps5 and keep the rear tires in ps4? They are new ps4 less than a 1000km.
Yes, mixing the Pilot Sport 5 and Pilot Sport 4 is totally ok as long as you match the left and right on the axle.
2022-09-28 - How come the pilot sport 5 is only available as a 97y not a 93y as well for the 245/40 r18 tire. The pilot sport 4 was available in both and I had the 93y. Is the 97y still suitable?
You can always go up in load rating so the 97Y will be fine. They might release a 93Y in the future if the market demands it however there's a chance it would be the same tire with a different sidewall so don't worry about fitting the 97Y.
2022-09-30 - Can you please have a chat with Michelin to find out about when the new tire size will arrive ? With only 44 launched I think there are a lot more to come as the PS4 were 130+ size. I am especialy interested in 215/50R17 for my Honda Civic
Unfortunately I don't have any new data yet, you could try contacting Michelin directly through their website and they might be able to give you a hint!
