    Default 458 Tyre Choices

    Sorry to raise this topic again.
    Both tyre specifications and manufacturers don't make it easy to choose types. My reading so far suggests a move from the P1's to Michelin's.

    For Michelin we have Pilot Sport 4S and also PILOT SUPER SPORT

    Which is currently their best choice for dry weather weekend use.
    Then confusion on sizes/load/fitment specs, some have K1 (Ferrari use) then for he PS4S there is an "acoustic" option for the rear in the correct size.


    Any advice in what and where to buy would be welcome. Who do you trust to fit without knackering the rims in Oxon/Berks area.


    MICHELIN PILOT SPORT 4 S

    Front 235/35 ZR20 (92Y) XL

    Rear 295/35 ZR20 (105Y) XL K1


    Does anyone every check the geometry on the 458 from time to time ?

    Wheels in Motion are now trading as Blackboots in Chesham who can also do the geometry check

    I swapped from Pirelli to Michelin S4S on my 458, big improvement in grip, both wet and dry conditions. I bought mine from Camskill who I have used previously, the prices are always competitive and delivery is next day.

    There is a model specific fitment of both pilot sport 4S which is equivalent to the old cup tyre in the dry but better wet performance.

    Or if you do track days and donít see the rain there is the new pilot sport cup 2 connect (with monitoring app) which are a freakishly good tyre.

    They would be my pick hands down and talk direct to Michelin or a franchised Ferrari dealersabout the best fitments.

    Wouldnít have anything else on my cars. Pirelliís new tyres are due out 2024 so they will no doubt be another leap on but for now Michelin are the ones.
