I love my "Michelin Pilot Super Sport XL" tires. I wouldn't hesitate to get them again. I daily drive my Evora, wet and dry (but mostly dry). The stock tires would hydroplane at 70-80 MPH, but these are super solid, yet still seem to give great performance and tread life. Going on four years now.

Looks like it was $862 from tirerack

I run MP4S on my 400.

It spends most of its time on spirited back road romps with occasional trips to the track.

I have been 100% satisfied with them.

Tire threads on car forums are like oil threads - there are multiple great choices and guys will stick up for what they like till the cows come home.

Question - the MP4S used to be the tire of choice for those of us that wanted the quietest ride in a performance tire. Has that changed? Is there a tire out there that's quieter?

Exactly but you CANNOT compare the performance numbers of a UHP to an MPT. Any time you want to run laps, I can promise you your Indy's will get greasey long before my ECS's. You have no idea how hard I beat on them at Palmer in my Miata. I was truly impressed. As I already said, my student , a repeater from last year, had a Focus ST and was doing extremely well. Tires howled like a banshee and he was using all they had to give. Our end of the day conversation was...I think its time you consider a set of track wheels and tires....I am sure on the street you are doing great with them. Once upon a time, I loved my Firestone SZ50's on my Cobra....I have NOTHING against the brand....but I know limitations within a category...and its HEAT!!

I agree about the heat.. of course, but the OP wants a daily driven tire, so it is an option.
