I just noticed that the MPSS on the base N are stamped HN like the Pirellis are on the PP. I bought MPSS for my last car because they were the best overall high performance summer street tires. Awesome tires for a stock car.

I've read (though I'm skeptical) that the Pirellis are some sort of special compound or construction. Is the same true of the Michelins? Or are the HN stamps just that- stamps only?

Cool find, guybo! I'll have to take a look at my MPSS tires, which are sitting in the basement.

I only had my base VN for about 3 weeks before having to rush and swap out tires before an early cold snap where I live.

The bmw mpss are obviously different but the hn not so much according to specs. There must be something different but it's probably very minor. I see 1/32 less tread depth but identical diameter.

I'm in Florida so we don't get a lot of cold weather, but last winter I was going to work and it was in the 40's one day in my old car. The change in grip was noticeable. If I lived in a colder state, wouldn't want to go a winter with these, snow or not.

Hyundai Namyang. HN and were produced by Pirelli especially for the VN. Some base models are equipped with Michelin Ps4s.
