    Its about time for some new tires on my 13 Boss. Keeping the stock wheels, and given that the car is very lightly used maybe 1000-2000 miles per year I was thinking something more aggressive for fun. Maybe Pilot Sports 4S, or Pilot Sport Cup 2s.

    Is anyone running these tires on stock wheels if so what size, and how do you like them?

    I had Pilot Super Sports on my stock wheels. Completely transformed the car. I never had the PS4S, but my buddy does on his 15 GT and it is also a huge upgrade. Go for it.

    What else are you guys recommending? I have a new to me 2012 Leguna with the stock Pirellis on them, and it is time for new tires.

    I have 285/35/20 Michelin PSS at all 4 corners on my Laguna and they are a lot better than the stock PZero Corsas (and approximately 8 million times better than the OE regular PZeros that on my 2012 Boss). I will probably try the Pilot Sport 4S next time. Also, look at the new Bridgestone S007A - I have them on another car and they are superb. Very sharp steering and stiff sidewalls but relatively quiet and refined feeling. They make them in stock Boss sizes.

    I have Pilot Sport 4S on my daily SS Sedan and they are amazing tires. I plan to get them on my Boss when it’s time for new tires.

    Also may want to check out continental extreme contact DW, I’ve had two sets, one on the GT500, and one on the current BOSS. Superior rain performance, dry feels nearly or as good as Michelin PS’s, and they wear very well, also cheaper than the PS’s.

    I know I'm getting in a little late on this thread but has anyone tried the Continental Extreme Contact Sports?
    My 13 Boss has the original Pirellis and they are not what I would call "sticky". I've only had the car for about a year so I don't know if those tires were ever sticky??

    I have them on my 15 gt and absolutely love them. I always used Michelin on everything I own but honesty for the money, the extremecontacts are the best street tire I've ever used

    and Jeffrey Epstein didn't kill himself.

    I had the Michelin PSS on a 08 GT500. I thought they were a great tire but of late I have read some very good reviews on the Conteninental ECS's. I'm planning on an occasional autocross and one or two track days during the course of the summer.
    Thanks for your input!
