Some feedback on the Pilot Sport 4S and nitrogen.
After a month I finally got a chance to get out of town for a decent run down to Taupo and did the volcanic loop last Thursday including up and back down the Turoa skifield road which is really windy and challenging. https://www.explorecentralnorthislandnz.com/touring-routes/volcanic-loop/
Also did a day's Skiing at Turoa skifield but by skiing is a lot more rusty than my driving lol
Very very pleased with the Michelin's performance, they offer stunning level's of grip.
Interestingly the tyre pressure set at 36 p.s.i. cold, (2.5 on the tyre pressure monitoring system) when cold has not dropped one little bit in just over a month and 1500 km's.
With normal air the on board tyre pressure monitoring system would have been reading 2.4 or 2.3 by now and I would have had to have stopped and topped up the pressure.
What does my experience suggest.
1. There tyres offer legendary level's of grip.
2. Filled with nitrogen they will definitely hold their pressure a LOT better than with normal air so you WILL get sharper handling as a result of more consistent tyre pressure and less hassle having to top up your tyre pressure as often.
3. You will also probably get very slightly better fuel economy due to more consistent tyre pressure. Worth $6.50 per tyre for the life of the tyre ? Is the Pope a Catholic
