Seriously, "not many reviews"? Sorry bud there are shit ton of discussions about tires.

Lots of guys swear by the Michelin PS4s and there have been converts for the slightly less money Contis...both of which won't have you feeling squirrelly in the rain.

Anything I put on will be better than the all seasons that are on there now. Btw I didn't put them on they were already on when we got car.

They will also see roughly 15 miles daily so I imagine anything I get should last a good while

My buddy just did the Contis because he couldn't get the PS4s and is liking them.

Nitto 555G2s are a pretty good summer tire. They bite pretty well.

MT ET Streets or GTFO, LOL. It's all I ran for about 3-4 years. They're great. The tread life blows, but it's expected.

I’ve had a couple of set of Firestone Fire-hawk Indy 500’s really like the tires and even ran them at a track day and they were pretty predictable. They work well in the rain and are quieter than the Michelin’s that I had in the past. And I think they also have better straight line traction as well.

You will get as many answers as asking what is the best oil.

I have Michelin PS 4S on the porsche and they are great. My previous Michelin PSS were also great and the tread lasted a long time for the amount of grip they have.
The PS 4S seems better in every way but don’t know tread life yet but seems good.
Only problem is they are pretty expensive.

I have been putting Kumho PS91’s on my V and they are like half the price of the Michelin and basically equivalent to the Michelin in dry and cornering performance. Treadwear and wet performance is not quite as good but for sure way more than 50% (maybe 80%) so it is worth it to me.

I have used Conti extreme contacts on my BMW before and they were great too. I honestly would just go by whatever has the best factory rebate whenever you go to buy. When I bought the Michelin PS 4S recently I got a $100 rebate so it was a no brainer.

As to the topic of this post, I run the ExtremeContact Sports and they're pretty good. Don't have a lot of miles on them as the car is a toy, but at 340 tw, they're going to last a while as long as your alignment is good.
