    What’s your camber setting? I ran the Pilot Sport 2 (220 tw) and Pirelli pzero (220tw). Pirelli liked 38 hot, and i think a gt Performance pack manual recommended 38 hot, thr Michelins didn’t like it. At 38 hot i was slippery at vir. I ran about 34F/31R hot, about 6 psi lower cold. It’s all about your driving and suspension setup

    I'm at -2.3 deg, which is the most I can get out the camber plates I have with stock struts.

    I ran 38 psi hot with the Michelins. My first time out from 32 psi cold, they went to 42 or 43 psi hot. I dropped that down incrementally and settled at 38. Lower than that, they started to feel too soft. I never ran Pilot Sport 2, though, only PSS. I can't remember what pressure I settled at for the Pirelli's, sorry. I only ran them half a season in 2012 - the first summer I had the car.
