    Having owned both PS2 and PSS - though on different cars, so objective+subjective opinion:

    PSS have more grip than PS2
    PSS have slightly more road noise than PS2
    PSS are silent when they break-away / start to slip; the PS2s howled (which I prefer).

    PSS is I believe a 5-6 year newer design than the PS2. Better material science, additional R&D, etc would account for high tread life rating and a stickier compound.

    Simplesolar - Thanks for sharing the info! It's encouraging to hear that they may offer better tread wear without sacrificing performance. They look great, too. Please keep us updated on how much mileage you get out of them!

    Reviving a bit of an old thread--- Simple Solar and others who have gone with staggered 20's and PSS, how are they performing now that you have some miles on them?

    Wow old thread. I now have 25,000 miles on them and just hit a nail last week. When I took it to the tire shop and they said I still had 4-5/32 left in the rears. I was pretty shocked how much tread is still left given everyone complaining on the forum. I think 40k rears and 50k front is no problem on these given good alignment. Not to mention the tires cost almost half of the 21" ps2s

    What's the story with those calipers?
