Ordered the Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sports from Tire Rack last week. Had them installed at a local Auto shop yesterday. So far so good. Much quieter than the OE run flats and less rigid with no noticeable decrease in grip.

I can highly recommend the continental contact 3's. They are a great tyre. They have won the best tyre 3 years in a row in a UK magazine called Evo. Thats what i buy now for all my cars.

My first two sets of tires were the Eagle F1 Assymetrics. I loved them. Went to get a third set (i have 120k miles now) and they were on national backorder so ended up with Mich Supersports which are amazing too. F1s are built in Germany. I notice now they have generation 2 F1s. They are very grippy and quiet too. Nevertheless the Pilot SS are grippier and quieter. F1s would be $220 cheaper for 4 tires with $80 rebate on tire rack so thats a prett nice savings. They both had similar tire wear. Im torn myself. Im gonna need tires soon. Probably gonna get Eagle f1. Thats a good amount of savings.
