I've always found Michelins to not do this for example, as they take a while to warm up, despite providing excellent grip. And when you push them to the limit, they give you no warning of where the limit is. But that is just my totally unfounded and inexerienced take on it.

Anyone else?
Assuming your talking PP's my experiance is exact as yours.

With the PP's, it's like.. Ya I got-ya, I got ya.. Wooop's don't got-ya..

And watch those painted lines with the PP's.. I think they're a good tire for most and wear like iron for a performance tire.

The 2ct's to me were kinda squirly feeling. I think it's from the different compounds transitions. felt like at a certain lean angle it wouldn't feel real planted, I think at this angle your on both the hard and soft compounds. Lean it way over and tires would settle in, straighten up and the tires would settle back in.. There was just that point that was in between that was distracting and spoiled my confidence in them..

Luv those Dunlop Q's though..

Yes was talking PP's. I lost all confidence in the Michelins after that. Still prefer the Pirellis over them. Am interested in the Bridgetsones and Dunlops for my next set maybe. Hearing good things about the BST's, and always used have good experiences with Dunlops, so would trust them again.
