Tested on indentical 328i's the PSS was able to pull 1.07g's compared to the Hankook pulling .90... how much money would you spend on suspension mods to get that kind of improvement? They are well worth the price jump over the Hankooks, they are in a completely different league...

Also the PSS WET lap time is faster than the V12's DRY time...well worth it.

I don't mind paying more for the PSS, but it seems like the performance gain you get from the PSS is not worth the 400bucks difference, and they perform better in rain.
+1 The Pilot Super Sports are no doubt an excellent tire. However, the Ventus V12s are, in my opinion, one of the best bang for your buck tires. You get a great quality tire at an affordable price

psh you know we are only worried about which tires provide the least amount of wheel spin when launching/going WOT in first or second gear.

When you really break it down $50/tire plus shipping is pretty minimal. Especially when you consider how long the tire will last.

Little update on the rebates, after i got $100 off from purchasing off eBay, i also sent in a rebate form from Hankook hoping i can get the $80 which they had with the promo. While i didn't think its gonna work, well it did, just received the $80 addition to the $100 from tiredirect.

unfortunately, those rebates arn't avaliable in Vancouver. States only.... but I have decided on the PPS. I have winter tires so I want max summer. and PPS seem fit my needs (max performance dry and wet). If I didnt get winters, i would have gotten the DWS.
