Have P-Zeros all round currently.

Only do c.2-3k a year.....

Replaced rears last year or so, P-Zero N2.

Front now need doing - should I stick with the same for the front or swap to the acclaimed Pilot Sport 4S?

I don’t have an OPC Warranty.

Is it ok to mix brands until rear require replacement or just keep it simple with the P-Zeros, which have been ok?

Sorry for all the questions!!

If you're happy with the Pzero's, I'd stick with them; not sure if it's a good idea to mix brands, especially on a high performance sports car.

As it's unlikely that you'll be changing your rears in the next couple of years I'd stick with the pzeros.

4 x ps4s would be better than 4 x pzeros but 2 + 2 ........... Dont know ... I don't think so.

Thanks both, as I suspected.

Just needed some of Terry’s logic to get me there!!

Change all 4 Smile

Oh ok, if you're happy with the Pzeros then keep them. MP4S are just incredible though....

Incredible maybe but a major downside is they are extremely noisy Surprised
Wet / dry grip levels not in question but ive had to offload 2 almost brand new sets of PS4S on 2 recent cars simply because i couldn't tolerate the noise level from them 50mph upwards .
First was a 35is i bought with a new set of PS4S (19s) , i was only 30 miles into the drive home when i stopped to see if i had a flat , they went within weeks & silence was restored to the cabin , that car went for the current C4 which i bought with virtually new PS4S fitted , same problem , tyre noise was noticeable increasing from 50mph , sold the set & fitted Vredestein Vorti R , couldn't be any quieter , couldn't be happier .
There are other decent tyres out there

Each axle needs the exact same tyre

but never mix brands front and rear

you may get away with a mix of tyre models of the same brand on different axles as long as they are within the same specification
