Michelin Power Pure

Michelin Power Pure
I just ordered a set (120/190) and ill get to try them out this weekend. Has anyone else run these tires yet? I hear/read that they are a cross breed between the pilot power 2ct and power race? Keep any non-informative posts out, por favor.

I just want to know if anyone has run these yet, and if so, what do you think about them?

Thanks
travis

yeah, i wound up getting them for $250 here tomorrow. i couldnt beat it. plus, no one could get the 190/50 in a pp2ct for weeks (i dunno why )

i hear these tires are what happened when the pp2ct and pr bumped uglys.

some of the classe rules restrict you to street tires.
They'll be a vendor with tires at the next Hurricane Alley event.

i give them 5 stars and

I think the Pures are comparable to the BT003RS, which have more grip on the edges than the BT16s

my thoughts exactly.

now i cant honestly say i can compare them to the pirelli corsa rosso, so i dunno.

but for street/track tires, i think these are well worth the money.

try the michelin website. it eludes toward the fact that they are 2lbs lighter than the pp2ct also.

Apparently people can not read, therefore fall victim to simple marketing strategies... on the michelin website, it states, they are more than 2 pounds lighter than comparable high-performance tires*

* = "Average weight of a set (120/70ZR17 and 190/50ZR17) of MICHELINģ Power Pureģ tires, compared to the average weight of a set of the following comparable tires: Bridgetsone BT-016, Dunlop Sportmax Qualifier II, Metzeler Sportec M3 and Pirelli Diablo Rosso."

Nowhere does it state that it is 2lb lighter than the pilot power 2ct. Please do not waste my time if you're not going to answer my question.

Can anyone simply weigh their power pure 180/55/17 with an accurate scale and give me the weight? I have a 2ct I can weigh tomorrow.
