Michelin Power Supersport Front Tires
Great track and street tire
Heats up quick on street or track. Provides great feedback and grip. Probably will only get 4-5 track days out of the fronts. Not bad in the rain either. My track is very technical and hard on tires. Larger tracks with sweeping turns would probably provide 8-10 track days or close to 1K miles of track ridding.

Great tread life for 50/50 tire.
Tires are sticky. I run 30/30 cold psi on the street and sometimes 28 in the rear with great results. I have over 2,000 miles on them now with enough tread on the rear for another 1,500 miles or so. Front tires always last long.
Great tires for track day junkies and spirited twisty/sweeper road riders. Haven't done a track day on these yet but looking forward to it. Might have the new Evo's by then.
Can't comment on wet traction. I try not to rider in the rain or at night.

Great Tire not so much for street use
I'm on my second set of these, and really suggest that you dont use these if you plan on doing mostly Street Riding. They are the Track Day Tire fit for a weekend warrior.
They do NOT Heat up as well or as quick as the PP3, or a Dunlop Q3. Under normal Street conditions they do not heat up very well at all and actually appear to provide less traction than a PP3 would or a Dunlop.
When you get them hot however, the traction is amazing! Especially at higher lean angles.
I'm going to be switching to the PP3 as I do more street riding and wanted the profile set up more so for street conditions.
Not knocking on the supersport, just dont confuse it for a dual purpose tire. It is really a DOT Legal Track Tire.

Cant say anything bad about this tire. Heats up very quickly and sticks to the road like glue . I tried this tire on the track twice and done tons of back roads with it love this tire. I am on my second set of these and will be getting a third for sure.

Great street tire good track day tire
I only ride track days on my GSX-R 750 and was looking for a tire that would last a little longer than the DOT Power Cups. The Power Supersport fit the bill with a little less grip. The Cups were completely gone after four trackdays where these have lasted five with enough "life" for 2-3 more. Lap times are a tad slower, but I'm not racing so these pretty much met my expectations.
