Whats more comfortable?

Hey everyone. Looking to purchase a set of 21" tires for my 750 and my 2 choices are either the pirelli pzero (NOT runflat) or hankook v12's. My goal for this car is solely comfort so I was wondering what you guys would think is the softer more comfortable tire. Sizes will be 245/35 and 285/30. Any input is appreciated. Thanks

If your goal is comfort, then WTF are you doing running a 21" wheel?

what he says...
the bigger the rim, the smaller the sidewall, the rougher the ride...

I know bigger wheels ruin comfort. But the question is regarding tires and when im not looking for anything else out of the tires (ie performance, grip, responsiveness) im wondering which tire is recommended for comfort over the other.

Ive had both but in different sizes. I can tell you that the Pirelli is the better tire but Hankook is not uncomfortable. The pirelli is better overall, if not more comfortable as well.

Yasha, it would be hard to tell the difference. I hear the Pirellis are a little better but the v12's are a very hard tire to beat for the money. I have v12's on my mom's car and I plan to get them on my next set of wheels.
