What's the fastest trackday tyre? What's the best track day semi slick tyre to use on the road and track? I take 3 very different track day tyres and put them on a BMW M2 to see which is best in the dry and wet. Video shot at MIRA and Cadwell Park.
Will a narrower 16 inch winter tyre give you better snow performance because it's narrow, or will the larger, wider 17 and 18 inch winter tyres perform better in the snow because they have more sipes and edges?
The Pilot Sport 4 (MPS4 / PS4) and 4 S (MPS4S / PS4S) are the road tyres, with the 4 designed slightly more for comfort and the 4 S more suited to track work. The Cup 2 is the Michelin track day tyre and should be considered if you plan on doing a lot of track miles.
The tests in the video include acceleration and braking on snow, snow handling, snow hill climb, snow braking on a hill, and obstacle avoidance.

The Goodyear Eagle F1 SuperSport R & RS - The Porsche 991 911 GT2 RS is breaking track records wherever it’s visiting, but can we make it even faster?
