I disagree. Wheel hop is not necessarily 100% suspension. When the engine moves enough on a hard launch, it can cause a feeling like wheel hop, and cause actual wheel hop as well. I had every suspension upgrade available on my SpecV excluding coilovers, and it still "hopped" until I got engine mount inserts.

While what you said, mac.mogul, can definitely help, it's not ALWAYS the total solution.

P.S. It happens with the Michelin Sport PS3's, too. Just happened to me this morning.
