Good deal, but this kind of pricing usually available at Costco - appreciate you need to be a member for that.

Agree about the PS4 N rating - don't understand why this hasn't happened.
PS4's not a Michelin SUV tyre which is the Latitude Sport 3 which is N approved

Pilot Sport 4 is now available for SUVs, but they're not N-rated:

Yes but only recently and Porsche tends to approve a tyre from a Manufacturer and not update it when the manufacturer's normal range moves on, eg the Continental winter is series 830 whereas their most recent none n winter are 860 series 3 years development further on.

Yes I am a Costco member - this was cheaper. They also only had 1 tyre available, not a lot of good unfortunately this time.

Okay, but you said that PS4 are not available for SUVs, irrespective of them being N-rated.

Being pedantic PS4 not, PS4 SUV are :) :) :) :) :) PS$ SUV look very similar To Latitude Sport 3's so probable a slight rebrand to take advantage of the reputation Pilot sports have for the likes of M3s/911's

Top tip, don't browse them online. Call them or go to the store. They have a lot more available than you'll see on the Web and can usually order in for next day.

On the flipside, I got 2 Michelin PS4 fitted to our other car last week, and the exact same tyres were £21.85 cheaper per tyre on the Costco website versus calling them. However, the website is pretty poor and you have to check it multiple times per day to get the tyres you want because they disappear randomly, and it doesn't show all the tyres they can get hold of.

Yes, there is a total disconnect between the Costco website and the store, it can be hard work. Best to check what you can get online, and the pricing for it, and then pop in to see what they can do - especially if you want a specific brand.

I had to order mine from Costco, they only took about four days to come in. They put my winter wheels on for me in the meantime FOC.
