I got a pair almost new for sale for $300, rear set. 285/30/20. They're one of the best tires out there. =D Let me know. I changed to the same brand but narrower instead.

Tires are on the way

I read a bunch of reviews on the tire rack site-seems that these tires are crisper feeling than PS-2s which is good, at the same time less road noise which is even better. I am not happy with numb on center feel of the PS-2's and am anxiously awaiting the new tires... keep you all updated.

I have 265/30/19 F and 305/30/19 R on HRE P40s and I love the tires. I have been through 2 track weekends and 18,000 miles on them. They are heavily worn now, but I will be ordering a new set soon. I have heard similar stories about them being a little stiffer in the sidewalls than the PS2s but I swapped my wheels as soon as I got the car so I cannot compare them. I'd recommend them as I will be buying them again.

Had a set on my 997 Carrera and they were very very nice. Much improved over the stock Michelins and Pirelli's that the dealer had. I'd say two thumbs up for them!

They are here

They are here at the rec. installer. Going to get road force balancing. Any reason to do Nitrogen? Seems silly as air is 80% Nitrogen.

Tires are on the car!!

Got my PS2's switched out for the new Yoko Advan Sports. No major trauma-a few faint scratches on the edge of the rim when they put them on-should be able to polish them out with ease. I did get force mounting and Nitrogen fill.

I could tell immediately that they were quieter. Can't hear them on grooved surfaces, in fact, can't really hear them anywhere. They ride a slight bit harsher than the PS2's when hitting bumps, however they turn in slightly crisper than the PS2's did. Overall, very happy with them. We'll see how they wear....

PS-now have a great set of nearly new PS2's with 750 break in miles on them for sale. Will get the tread depth when I pick them up from the installer.
