The Corsas are dreadful under 10 degrees, which is typically a big chunk of our winter - they ride like concrete, the ‘skipping’ you mentioned in your original post is really bad and there is very little grip and NO traction. Some on here (Nick for eg) have been very vocal about how awful they are in the cold.Mine are ‘Pilot Super Sport’. They feel great in our conditions. Call me soft or inexperienced or both, but I don’t think I get anywhere near exploiting the full performance envelope of the tyres. I’m not sure I would appreciate the nuances of Corsa v 4S etc. What type of driving do you guys do on public roads which provides a comparison, other than just ‘feel’?

Although the MPS4S are also officially summer tyres, most of us have found them to be pretty good in cold conditions. We barely got any snow in the south of England last winter and the MPS4Ss were fine all year.
I’m not surprised you like the Super Sports. In most conditions and most driving styles, there would be little between them and the MPS4Ss, though the latter, being a newer tyre will have a better longevity (Michelin reckon they will last 30% longer than the Super Sports) and their rolling resistance is better, meaning better mpg.
The MPS4Ss would also have better wet and dry grip and better resistance to aquaplaning, but the differences during normal driving would be quite small. Enjoy the Super Sports - they are great tyres.
