Thanks, but I don't have them anymore.

I now have the OEM 19's with Bridgestone Potenza RE-11's

To be honest, I like the look of the OEM 19's more, they are multi-dimensional, and they keep the balance of the car, the HRE's induced understeer.

Also, because of the added weight i lost a little acceleration.

HRE's are more for looks than performance.

PS-2s / RE-11's / P-Zero

Since you have tried these three tires what do you think of the ride quality and noise of each of these?

That is a hard question to answer. My PS2's were the 18"s thus 40 series , the other 2 were the 19's 35 and 30 series, and the PZero's needed 40PSI COLD to not roll-over during hard cornering, while the RE-11's are quite comfortable at 35PSI with no rolling over.

Obviously the RE-11's are the best performers, as they should be since they are in the highest class performance category for a street tire.

The RE-11's have the stiffest sidewall, and I think still ride a little softer than the PZeros @ 40PSI.

Quality wise, the RE-11's are the best as well. I am really a fan of the Bridgestone Potenza series of tires.

I am a lot happier with OEM 19's with RE-11's, from a performance standpoint, it is the best option.

As far as noise, between the 3, I really couldn't tell a difference. I am sure there is a little difference between them, but it is nothing that stands out.
