Michelin Pilot Road 4, 50 vs. 55 profile
I have decided on new Pilot Road 4 tires. I am wanting to go with a 55 profile for easier/sharper turn-in, as many have reported. I looked at the 50 profile PR4 in the store and it has a noticeably sharper profile than stock, and also a Pirelli that was sitting there (which appeared to be similar shape to the stock tire). My concern with the 55 profile is that I don't want to make the handling feel twitchy.
I'm looking for feedback from folks who have gone to a PR4 in both 50 and 55 size, with your observations on how the handling (especially turns) compared to the stock 190/50 tire.
Also, I would be interested in knowing what tire pressure you like with the PR4. On the stock Bridgestone I tend to run 2 to 4 psi lower than recommended.
