Anyone use Yokohama S. Drive Tires?

Hey everyone,
I am tire shopping and Yokohama S. Drive tires have caught my eye. I wonder if anyone has any experience with the longevity of the tires and what their opinion is of them for daily driving. I am sure that they are great tires but still.

I picked up a set of VMR 718 Rims and I am trying to see if these tires will work.

Front - 19x8.5 et 35 with 235/35/19
Rear - 19x9.5 et 33 with 265/30/19 or 255/30r19 if there is a rubbing issue hopefully someone has input. If not then I will do the 255 to be on the safe side.

TireRack.com had a good review of the tires using a bmw with 17's. I also just noticed Michelin Pilot Super Sport. Thoughts on these?

S.Drives are pretty solid tires, however if you're debating between Michelin Pilot Super Sports vs. S.Drives, go with the Michelins.

I was secretly hoping you were replying. haha. Based on your experience, would you suggest a 265 rear or 255. The tire shop suggested 255, because they stick out a little bit. I don't wanna roll le fenders.

I'd probably recommend the 255 option if you're not really looking to roll the fenders or anything.

As a side note, I'm probably going to go with S.Drives for my next tires to try. Right now I'm on FK452s and they're alright. Hoping the S.Drives are better.

The yokohamas are pretty good, I fle tlike I got better tread life out of the yokos over the PSS. I had both on my e46, Maybe a little better grip with the PSS but the price on the yokos were much better at the time and like I said better tread life.

I've heard from other employees here that the S.Drives last a good amount of time for a summer performance tire. Looking forward to giving them a shot!
