Michelin Power Supersport Rear Tires 4.7 5 6 6
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. July 19, 2015
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. May 31, 2015
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. February 22, 2015
Love this tire 3rd set of these tires it's really hard to get away from them... I want to change to Pirelli tire but these power super sports are so dam good! They heat up so quickly, grip so dam well.... absolutely love them.. March 10, 2014
Great 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. December 9, 2013
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. October 28, 2013

Roger S: I picked this because the power one was no longer available. This is a bit closer to the power pure than the power one as in compound. The top surface never really gets that sticky, the radiusâ??s do, the change in hardness seems harshly different. I am not sure that I would go with this tire again, but I would recommend it to others that are more about getting a long life out of their tires. Jul 6, 2014
Rasheed H: Wanted to try the 200/55 profile for myself!!! Fan of Michelin and these will probably give me more tread life than supercorsa V2 Simple as that. Currently running the PP3s. May 16, 2014
A shopper asked: I ride CBR 1000RR (Track dedicated only). I have Pilot Power One on the bike now which are done. I like Michelins and want to stick with them. My confusion now is that should I be going with Power Super Sport or Power CUP? Is Super sport a better replacement for Power ONE? Michelin catalog states Power one as 70% track use 30 % street use, and for Power Super Sport 50% track & 50% street. Does this mean that Power One was better track driven tires than Super sport? I am not the fastest guy out on the track, I am however getting better. So just wondering if Super sport is a better tire for me or Power Cup? Price difference between these two are irrelevant to me. Am I going over board even considering Power Cup? Michelin says Power Cup are best if they are upto 175° operating temperature, I've never checked the tire temperature after a session, so I'm clue less. Long story short, I need a better and faster tire than the Power ONE I had. Is Power super sport it? Sorry for the detailed & long question. Jun 19, 2014

Jarrod M: I ride an RC51 track bike. I've gone through pretty much every generation Michelin track tire on it since 2003. I made the change you're wondering about, Power One to Supersport, last season too. I've had no issues with either tire at track days riding a low end advanced class pace. The Power Ones have 3-4% less groves so possibly less suited to street riding than the Supersport? I'm not sure why the change in street vs track percentage numbers you've stated although I've still heard Supersports are 70-30. They are supposed to be run at 30 psi front and 24psi rear which to me says they still are a pretty track focused tire. They don't need warmers like the Power Cups do but can be used with warmers at a 150 degree setting. I can't say which tire I prefer more although I liked the appearance of the Power Ones better, lol. I'd say if you have or want to invest in warmers, don't mind tires wearing quicker, being more expensive and are riding at upper end advanced/expert pace go with the Cups. If not give the Supersports a try and gradually up your pace and see how they feel to you. You'll get more life with less expense out of the Supersports. Jun 19, 2014

Roger S: They are less sticky the the power ones, faster depends on the track or road. Obviously if sticky is not needed the harder carcus of the supersports could be a big advantage. The power ones are/where a lot more sticky. The compound used on the top radial of the supersport is really quite a hard durable rubber. Off the track on my cbr1000rr, it slips _a_lot_ (on the slick greasy roads found in Austin,TX). I took them out to the COTA F1 track last weekend (RideSmart), and they also lack the desired V shape for great contact on the track. I wish I could find a good sticky track tire that does not require warmers. The supersports do hold up very well. Lately I have gone with power one, then supercorsa V2, and now supersports. The stickiest by far was the power one. The supersports by far are the most durable. I was not a fan of the supercorsa, IMO you likely need tire warmers to get anything out of them. I have been most impressed by the power ones which I wish Michelin would bring back. I have considered going with power cups 190/55 AV front A rear, but they say not to waist your time with the tire without warmers. Jun 27, 2014

G H: Roger S, I just replaced the tires on my track bike 1000RR day before yesterday. And after reading your post I'm a bit nervous. I really wanted the supersport to be more sticker than Power Ones. Power Ones were really sticky, but on hard acceleration I did feel them coming loose a bit. But they never ran out under me, cause I was pretty gradual on the throttle coming out of the turn. I got a Track day coming up next of this month. I will post my review on how I feel on Supersport. However, i have always like the V shaped tires, cause it makes is just that much easier to tip in.

G H: Great, thanks Jarrod. So for now I'll go with Super sport, hope they are better, sticker & faster than Power One.
Thanks again.

A shopper asked: Are the Supersport tire and Pilot 3 tires made out othe same softness of rubber? Do they have the same tread life? Jan 29, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (1) No (0)
docshiroma: No and I'm not speaking from experience but it's a much softer compound intended more for the track than street like the Power Ones. You should get more life from them than an average track tire though. Apr 25, 2013

Nghia P asked: I ride a 2008 Yamaha R6 and use it mostly for to and from work but I want a tire that is 'sticky' enough to handle any corners that may come my way. Is this a tire I should buy or should I stick with something else? Dec 1, 2013

Jason B: If you just ride to and from work and do the occasional back road and occasional trackday personally I think you should get the pilot power pure. The supersport tire is really soft and heats up very quickly. The more back roads and trackdays the better this tire absolutely rocks on the back roads and on the track they were perfect just be sure to use the correct tire pressure. I been through 2 sets of the pilot power ones and now I'm on my 2nd set of the supersports. I am from Connecticut and every Sunday we ride up to Kent, CT which borders Dutchess county. Most of the guys that meet up there have the ones these tires. Hope this helps enjoy the ride! Dec 2, 2013

Rasheed H: How many miles did you get out of your supersports? May 13, 2014
Chad W: I am wanting to know the same thing! I know you ( Rasheed) mentioned above that your had already tried the PP3's... how did you like them on the track? I ride in the middle of the intermediate group and want to make sure the PP3 is up to the task. I'm considering the supersports but I am worried street riding will wear them out/ waste money. thoughts on which one I should get???? Jul 26, 2014
Jarrod M: This is a very track focused tire. While it is street legal and will work on the street there are much better options for commuting and tire life, mileage you're going to get out of the tire. I'd suggest the Road 3 or if you want something "stickier" the Power 3's or even the Power 2ct's if you're looking at Michelins. Dec 2, 2013

Ryan B: This tire is amazing! I only use it on my track bike so I can't speak for street longevity but they have lasted 4 or 5 track days. The edge grip and feel is amazing and gives you a ton of confidence. Plus you can't go wrong ordering from Revzilla! Cheers! Dec 1, 2013

Roger S: The question was not regarding tire life but if this tire is `sticky`. There is more to a track focused tire than being soft or hard. Really sticky tires can be very worth wile to have on roads where you are dodging cars, pedestrians, and dealing with oil slicks and warn down glassy surfaces. On an abrasive highway, a soft sticky tire may not serve an advantage. But if you ride in a city with polished roads, you will get more miles out of the soft tire and you can lay on the break or throttle without spilling the bike (which I have witnessed a lot of). The supersport is advertised as a '50/50' track/road. IMHO, it's a 10/90 track/road, great road tire for most people, better suited for the road than the track (it lacks an aggressive side contact patch like the super cups) and it's not as sticky as the power ones. It's my guess that this tire is superior in all ways over the pilot power pure. Michelin should have replace the power pure with the supersport and improved on the power one to make it more like the power cup. Jun 27, 2014

Robert B: Put about 4k miles and 2 track days @ roebling on an 09 cbr 1000rr with 183whp. Great daily driver/track tire. Excellent grip and longevity. Tires would have lasted another 3k daily driver miles. Got to love the 2ct compound. Highly recommend due to bang for buck over Pirelli. Pirelli makes a great tire, but they don't seem to last as long and usually cost a little more. Hope this helps. Dec 1, 2013

A shopper asked: Hi! Are these also light weight as Power Pure tires?

Thanks in advance

Eduardo T: No, i dont think so. . I have searched everywhere and as far as i know...only the pures where lighter than most tires. The Power supersports are still top performers. I believe because the Pures were lighter that it brought up issues with the tires holding..or not holding heat for as long as other tires...since there is less material for heat. I have used the Pures at the track w and without tire warmers and the pressures do have to be different than other street tires for this reason. I was looking to replace my rear pure but ended up gettjng the power supersport because the pures are not being made anymore. I habe not been dissapojnted so far. Sep 6, 2014

A shopper asked: Have a 500hp ++ turbo Busa that I do 1 mile landspeed racing with and used Michelin Power One's . They are no longer available so tried the Supersports, they are ok {broke the tire loose in all the gears, worse with the supersport tire and adjusting suspension and things still} but thinking about pilot power 2ct due to a tad softer compond in the center of the tire. Any input on rear tires??? Jan 10, 2015
