Default Continental Sport Contact 6 vs Michelin ps 4s

Hi all,

Before posting this thread, I was searching for Continental Sport Contact 6 and I couldn't find any, especially when it comes to comparing it with Michelin ps 4s.

I couldn't decide yet which tireto go for, and I would need your feedback or recommendations.

Size: 275 35 19 (square setup).

For weekend and track use.

Some websites (review websites) said the Sport Contact 6 is better than ps4s.

I would appreciate getting your experiences.

Thanks,
NASM

Neither of those are particularly good track tires. They are ok for one or two laps but that's it. You're better off getting Bridgestone RE71R, Yokohama Advan A052, Nitto NT01, Nankang AR1. There are many tires you can choose from that are better than those.

The Mich will get greasy after about 15 to 25 minutes. Depending on track and your experience.

Very useful info, actually we have 20 minutes every session. Hence, it is better to choose different model.

Thank you Rusty.

No problem those are just some of the options that are available. I'd like to add that the Michelin PS4 is probably the best rain tire out there but it sacrifices dry weather performance in favor of the wet.

I never got to track on the continentals but I may make it next month. Before that I did a few on the Bridgestone S-04 and they werenít bad. I too was looking at the conti vs Michelin and one thing I was informed about the Michelin is they were having de lamination issues on the ps4 on track when the ps3 never had those issues. Maybe thatís been resolved because that was when they first came out but just something I was told by a tire seller than handles a lot of track users.

Thank you Jhill, appreciate your comments.
And please let me know your feedback when you go for track.

In addition, I found this, it might be useful:

I have used many tires on my Z over the years. I am on my second set of Yokohama Advan Neova AD08Rís I can vouch they have the best overall wet and dry traction I have seen. I have always enjoyed running the Yokohamaís on my Z!

Quicksilvers, this is a very good tire BTW, my friend just texted me yesterday, informing me the same.

Question: What sizes you use? On 370z sport model wheels?

On the sport wheels you have size options the 245/40/19 front 275/35/19 rear will fit just fine. I currently am using
255/35/19 front 305/30/19 rear. Selecting the correct tires for your set up will make all the difference.

Do you use the sport wheels too? Because I see different sizes here.
And if yes, will they fit without any issue?

Thanks,

When changing tires sizes on the Z. You have to stay within 3% difference between the front diameter and rear diameter of the tires. I have 285/35-19 on the front and 345/30-19 on the rear. I'm at 1.2% difference. I'm using my set up as an example.

The sizes QS posted are 0.7 % difference.

Ahaaa, I see, that's very useful info.
Many thanks Rusty, you are awesome. Highly appreciated.
However, my question is, can I use the 370 sport wheels with new tier sizes, or do I need to get new wheels?

thanks,
nasm
