Tempted to replace the rear with these after seeing the review and how much of an improve over michelin 4s. Also a lot cheaper as well.
Has anyone tried them?

I went with them as couldn't stretch my budget to PS4S. I am comparing to previous tyres which were over 7 years old so not a fair comparison and have never had the pleasure of PS4S. Mine is only a THP200 and I didn't think I would notice and might just be placebo effect but I can feel I have more more now grip during spirited drive. As you mentioned, these are a lot cheaper in comparison to PS4S now.

Not tried them, but Continental are a premium tyre manufacturer.

If the price is good I would go with them.

seen several videos of them being tested on a very wet track and a dry track and it out performed the 4s easily, which really surprised me.

Watched tyrereviews.com and a couple of other ones and were surprised as well. However, I guess PS4S were first released back in 2017 so about time other manufacturer caught up. Plus good for us consumers if there were more great tyres to choose from.

Are you going to put them on the back, or go with them on the front?

I know the advice is best tyres on the back, but the front does so much work on the R I'd want the best to the front.

I've ordered Goodyear Eagle F1 asymmetric 6. I liked the older Goodyears, but I felt they were a little too soft on the sidewall for good steering. The 6s are extra load so I hope that helps.

Tests show they trade category wins with the Continental 7.

I have 2 pilot 4 S on the front and the continentals are going on the back. So both are really good tyres :cool:

Been on for a couple of weeks and the car is so much more grippier with these on the rear, as the old Accelera tyres which were put on by the dealer really sucks. I can take the multiple S bends at greater speed in the morning when travelling to work. ;)

As long as they are in pair ie front/back are the same its fine to mix front/ back.
Also I am not going to bin pilot 4s tyres as most places are charging closer towards £280 a tyre, even though continentals are considered better but are slightly cheaper. meaning I paid around £1k for 4 tyres ;). Just dont put inferior tyres on a car if you intend to drive it fast. Its fine if its the shopping car 😂

I agree that mixing is fine to a certain degree. You've got two good pairs of tyres on each axle and that is fine.

Mixing premium and budget is a big issue.

Coming from BMWs many owners had replaced a pair of runflats with normal tyres. The characteristics of the car were all over the place.
