Michelin PSS or Nitto NT-05?

I had NT-05's on my Cayman S and was pretty happy with them. The rears survived about 18k miles with 6 autocross days and 2 track days before they were down to the wear bars. They had great traction right up to the end. My last hurrah with them was a track day at Watkins Glen.

I'm switching shortly over to my winter tires, but am already planning on my wheel/tire combo for the Spring.

Although I liked the NT-05's, they did get pretty noisy towards the end. I actually didn't mind the ride quality either.

However, I understand that the PSS will be superior in terms of ride quality and noise. And wear, I'd assume?

My question is how much grip will I be sacrificing at the track and autocross with the PSS's? That's my main concern, and the very slightly higher price.
