Default Opinion on the Michelin Pilot Preceda

Hi,
I'm thinking of getting the Michelin Precedas fitted on my Honda Civic. Any opinions/alternate suggestions? These will be low profile tyres on 17"rims.

Michelin Preceda's are excellent. I have them on my Baleno.
The tyre offers good steering response/handling/cornering.
Very good in both wet as well as dry conditions. No trye noise.

Can give you a first-hand report in a few days time. Will be fitting them on my car which is undergoing restoration.

If you ask mclaren1885, he'll guide you towards Advan Neovas. Apparently some analogy with chewing gum.

Michelin is worshipped on team-bhp.
Go ahead and get the PP2 .

I too am using PP's on my car & have nothing but praise for them. The grip is absolutely fantastic but it has a stiff sidewall so the ride will not be as good as compared to some comfort biased tyres.
