I am thinking of buying Michelin PS4S next summer :eusa-think:

And what about winter tyres? Does anyone have suggestions?

I recommend Pirelli for the winter. They are soft and have good comfort. But they wear off rather quickly.

The PS4s are great, as are the pilot super sports that are fitted to the 308 GTI. Another option are Bridgestone RE003. I've had a set of them and was impressed with both dry and wet grip.

I have unitoyal rainsport 3 on. Very grippy in the wet and dry conditions. Only prob is they have little to no alloy rim protection when fitted to an R...

I've had the chance to drive the PSS and PS4s back-to-back on the RCZ R. The PS4s trumps the PSS by miles.
While I was test driving the 308 GTI I was unhappy with the comfort of the tyres. I had to lower the pressure (from insane 40 PSI as picked up at the dealer down to 27 PSI). Still those PSS were not perfect. They are good, no doubt about it. At the end I used them for over 20.000 miles on my RCZ R. But I'm sure the PS4s can cure a lot of the "edginess" of the 308 GTI drive.

There is a very good review on the PSS vs PS4s available:

OK, I stop here before someone suspects me working for Michelin :D

I've never driven a car with the Pilot Sport 4 'S'. I didn't even realise there was an S model of the PS4. I was referring to the PS4 above. The PS4S are definitely worth a look by the sounds of it.
