I had a mishap recently which led to me having to switch out my tires a lot quicker than expected. After careful consideration between the A/S 3 and the Cintuarto P7, I opted for the latter. When I was placing my order, I realized that the P7 recently came out with the Plus II. I couldn't find any info on them but figured they're newer and a successor so it can't be worse than the regular Plus. Installed and drove around 200 miles and so far these are my thoughts: -Efficiency is a lot better. I was going from 295 with the Michelins Pilot Sports to 260 with the P7. -Grip seems fine but a little bit less than the Pilot Sports -Comfort skyrocketed with the P7 -Road noise decreased immensely with the P7 -Now for the part that kinda sours the tires, it feels as if it takes more power, more pressure from my foot, to get the car moving. I can't tell whether it's the silence of the tires or how much more smoother they are in terms of comfort but the instant torque/power from the vehicle feels a bit muted. To be fair, I haven't MASHED on the peddle but the feel of the acceleration definitely feels dampened. Hopefully I get used to this as I would be bummed out and regret I didn't go with the A/S. But to be fair, tread is 30K versus 70K, thats a hugeeee jump. Also, I can't seem to find the A/S in the 235 40 19 configuration anymore. Is it sold out or discontinued? Hopefully a newer model with a higher tread life is coming?
