Pilot Super Sports are awesome. The difference in ride quality over the OE Bridgestones is huge. It no longer feels like I'm riding in an unladen U-Haul. So far, just on the street, there doesn't appear to be any real difference in dry traction when compared to the RE050s, though I'm sure on track there would be some difference. With El Nino looming I'm also looking forward to trying out their wet weather performance. I'd highly recommend these so far. Of course, living in LA, I don't have to worry about cold weather performance so YMMV. Also, haven't experienced any rubbing on a stock height car with the taller sidewalls.
