NEED NEW TIRES ON MY 2010..SUGGESTIONS ?
Posted 30 August 2012 - 07:59 AM
They are available in the STTPP sizes, and I really liked them on my last ride.
I expect they will have better traction accross the entire temp range and ride quieter than the G2's.
Got 13k miles out of the G2's. I'm hoping the Michelins last longer too.

I cant even imagine not running a drag radial on my 12. All of the Michelin Super Sport posts have me wondering if I am wrong.
I would say for street use drag radials are not needed. There is a reason everyone is raving about the Pilot Super Sports, because they are awesome. And with a treadwear rating of 300 they should last for quite awhile.... If your not doing burnouts on them all the time.

I ordered mine from Sorat Wheels & Tires in North Vancouver. $1165 incl HST, mounting, balancing and install plus they gave me $400 for my Goodyears with 2800 kms on them.
WOW...that's a great deal !!

They hook up GREAT and are quieter than the G2's.

I have a couple of questions/concerns:
- The tires are not an exact match. The closest I see to the 265-40/r19 is the RE970AS's 255-40/r19, and the closest to the 285-35-r20 is 275-35-r20. Any issues there?
- These are all season tires. I suspect these will do much better in fall, winter, and spring, but I am concerned about how they do in the summer.
I don't track the car and care more about straight-line performance.
If there is anyone out there that have installed RE970AS Pole Positions with these sizes and care to share their experiences, I'd greatly appreciate it. I'm so hopeful that whatever I select will significantly improve the performance I'm getting with the stock Goodyears.
Thanks in advance!
