Tyre thread - hopefully new and relevant - Mich Pilot Sport 4s?

Please can anyone provide any user reviews or feedback of Michelin PS4s tyres specifically on 997 C2S please? Car is road use only, lowish, spring/summer/autumn miles. Car out of warranty. They are available in correct size front and rear 235/35 19 91 & 295/30 19 100 but not "N" rated (which is not a concern to me).
 
It seems this tyre is replacement for Pilot SS tyre.
 
Many thanks

I have just put these on my 997 Gen II Turbo.  They are superb!  I too didnt let a lack of N-Rating put me off.  The 20" versions are N-Rated so its not like Porsche hasnt spent time with these tyres for its new cars and thery are Michelin tyres.  IMO simply the best.

Like JCX said, I've heard from several 997 drivers I know that PS4s are the dogs danglies. All 997s tend to drive better on Michelins as a rule as PS2s were used to develop the car on by Porsche (which is why these are more readily available with the 'N' rating). There is a bit more tyre noise on mine on PS2s compared to the P-Zero Rosso's that it came with when I bought it, but the gain in both grip and poise is well worth it so I can only imagine that PS4s will be the same or better in all respects.
