+1 . I think the Ventus V12's are great tires. I went 275 front/255 rear on stocks 19's and they definitely feel much more grippy. My car would spin through 1st and 2nd before, but now it spins through 1st and part way through 2nd and then hooks up.

I've also noticed that the V12's are significantly more quiet than the PS2's, and they seem to ride a bit smoother .

My vote for the Hankooks. My way of thinking is tires only last a few thousand miles so who cares if you buy a set that you arn't super crazy about, you just mark em off your list and buy others next time.

Good luck
