In Reply to: Micheling Pilot Spts vs. Bridgestone Potenza PP? posted by Dreamer on July 24, 2000 at 12:55:33:

Take it with a grain of salt, since it's on two different cars:

Michelin Pilot: Z3-Great, great all around wheels, very sticky in most situations and quiet, fairly good in bad weather/wet road.

Bridgestone Potenza: 323Ci: For some very strange reason I got the Z-Rated Bridgestone Potenza on my 323Ci sports package(323Ci's with sports are suppose to come with W-rated Turanzas)-Great, very very sticky tires (yet to get it to squeal...and I drive fairly hard) but tend to be rather noisy. Also performs poorly in bad weather/wet road. I've got the rear end to give a few times in the rain, and it wasn't even under hard cornering.

I think they're about the same price and when the Bridgestone wears down I'm going to get a set of Pirelli's (Most likely P7000) just to compare. Ultimately I like the Michelins better.

Just my 2 cents...Truely take it with a grain of salt since it's on two completely different cars.
