Tire recommendation to get rid of tramlining

Experiencing very bad tramlining. Was always there but is now worse. What tires would be best to never have any tramlining?

Have a 17" OEM staggered setup with Bridgestone Potenza RFTs that are almost done.

Thinking of Continental DW or Michelin Super Sport..?

Either tire should be a large improvement from your OE tires in ride and tramlining. The Continental Extreme Contact DW does have a slight advantage in ride quality to the Michelin Pilot Super Sport.

Any tire on Earth will tramline less than worn Potenza RFTs. You can't go wrong. Personally, I went with the Continental DW and couldn't be happier. Highly recommended.
