Anyway, I have ordered Hankooks V12 and Nitto Invos, first one to arrive are the ones going on the car. The indy shop says to get Invos and not Hankooks... we'll see.

That's cool, now you know

The V12s are awesome tires in terms of hook-age and you simply cannot beat the price. I considered the Invos as well (modertely priced) but read about them being super squishy. I may still try them one day. Boy do they look tits though, eh?

I like the hankooks because they come in 285/35 and PS2's only have a 285/30/18 However a 285/35 hankook weighs 32lbs. A 275/35 PS2 weighs 25lbs. For the record a 255/40 PS2 is also 25lbs.

I'm currently on Michelin Pilot Sport (PS1s I believe?) 18's on OEM 18's. What do you guys recommend for a good 19' tire? (Really wish the car came with 19' OEMs what a night and day difference.. or some ZCPs.., or BBS LMs. Really a timeless looking car when clean isn't it?

I read about the V12s they seem very good value but I dont know much about tires, with so many brands out there.

Thanks guys

does the hankook provide the same ride comfort as PS2s? Since I daily drive my car ride comfort / treadwear life are probably my main concerns...I know switching to 18s will provide improvement but I prefer the looks of 19s
