225/50 R16 of course


yes they do have a nice profile. Just the right amount of sidewall.

my last tires (r15's) were michelin primacy's and they road like a dream and were sticky as hell but the sidewalls were a joke. If I had to make a quick turn there was literally a delay and as far as I can tell these tires completely solved it. I do believe pilot's are michelins sport tires though so that's probably why

There are several Michelin Pilot types. Did you get the Exalto, or the higher end ones (PS2, etc)?

The Exalto has a nice strong sidewall. I love the cornering response compared to the previous tires.
