Release date: 2019.01.01
Boxster's tire change
Happy new year. For 2019, I also hope that for the readers, I can enjoy updating blogs that are fun and useful, myself. Humbly again this year.
Well the other day my husband,I ran the Suzuka Circuit at BoxterHowever, as I joined with the tire grooves considerably reduced, the Boxter tires after the run were indeed terrible. "This must be changed quicklyI'm always askingNishinomiya baseI asked for a tire change this time.
Nishinomiya baseIs a tire carry-over exchange specialty shop, and"Direct delivery service"There is also, so buy a tire on the net, make the destination a shop, if you bring in a car by hand, it is very convenient because you can exchange tires. So, several years ago, all our cars are asking for tire change here.
The tire bought by my husband this time is Michelin Pilot Sports 4 S. Previously981 Boxster GTS 20 inch tire, Porsche certified tire becomes "Pirelli P Zero" or "Goodyear EAGLE F1 ASYMMETRIC 2" two choicesThere seemed to be only one. Just my husband liked Michelin personally, so I was thinking that "I wonder if it will come out with Michelin", but Michelin Pilot Sports 4 S was released shortly before.
Initially, there was no size fit for Boxster 20 inch, so later on, a Porsche certified sized fitting entered Japan and it became available for purchase, so he decided to change to Michelin Pilot Sports 4S.
And my husband is always referring to tire selectionTIRERACKEven in the review,The overwhelmingly high evaluation compared with the tires of other companies, the value of TREADWEAR of UTQG display which is stamped on the tire(Wear resistance is hard. Wear resistance)It is surprisingly high for 300 tires with super high gripIt seems that it became the deciding factor.(By the way EAGLE F1 ASYMMETRIC 2 was 240)
However, if it is trueThe rear tire still has grooves that it is not necessary to change yetHowever, "If you change only the front tire you will be wearing a different manufacturer's tire in the front and back", but if you change the front tire to Goodyear again, it will be impossible to escape from Goodyear any further so we are going to Michelin I heard he decided to change.(After that, Goodyear's Porsche approved tire has gone up because the price has risen)
If the president chooses, Michelin
While he got the tire exchanged, he asked the president of Nishinomiya base to talk about various tires about it. And, "When the president who has seen various brands of tires wears their own cars, what kind of tires will you choose?" I heard that "If I were you I would choose MichelinHe said he was saying "It is.
Michelin,There are many things that are very round and have a uniform weight balance, and even though it is light, there is not much peeling off of rubber as a different company as with other companies.Although it is a tire of the same class of other manufacturers, although performance is good and light, although many rubber deteriorate or peel off quickly, Michelin is not so strong. And, sensibly, Michelin seems to be using a different material like "resin" rather than "rubber".
It was said that it was thing.
Even when exchanging the tire this time, we first adjust the balance of the wheel itself, we measure the balance again after assembling the tire,Since the balance of the tire itself is good, it is fine as it is without adjustmentIt seems it was.
Certainly, it seems that there are a lot of people wearing Michelin among those who are interacting with this blog user and Twitter.
What is the evaluation of Michelin Pilot Sports 4S?
After exchanging the tires, I tried running Boxster and asked my husband how to feel, it seems that it is still very good"It is that tires change like this on a tire, after all the tires are important"He said.
Also, as with the Michelin pilot cup 2, the side of the tire is Michelin's unique velvet processing, so this tire seems to look like a letter when seen from the side seems to emerge and likes it.
1 There is no rough feeling, the sense of rolling is not hesitant
It was a feeling that the rough feeling of the road surface was transmitted more than when it was a new item of Goodyear's EAGLE F1 ASYMMETRIC 2 which I used to wear, but this time the tire seems to be very smooth without it. Also, at the beginning, it was too rough, I got a lot of trouble, so I had the dealer look at the wheel balance, but Michelin is not at all like that. Anyway, it is round. I think that the feeling of rolling is pleasant and the roundness is insanely high."It may be overstated, but I feel that it's not like Zara's feeling is similar to Panamera?"He said. By the way quietness is about the same as EAGLE F1, so road noise seems not to change so much.
The accuracy of 2 handles has increased
The previous EAGLE F1 was also a very good tire, but it was not a problem at all, but the handling seems to be more accurate than that. Especially said the initial response of the beginning of cutting and the accuracy during cornering was high.
3 Straight running stability increased
It seems that when I was running on a highway, I felt like going "Sue" as if I had been pulled from the front. Compared with the early days of EAGLE F1, it was said that it understood clearly the difference.
Also, EAGLE F1 seems to be a good impression that wet grip performance was not good at all, but "I want to try wet performance of pilot sports 4S, so I wonder if it will rain heavily soonIt was said (explosion)
For cars, tires are still very important.
