I'm a fan of the Sumitomo if you want to keep the cost low, as they are great tires for the money. Overall, the HTR Z III is the number one tire I sell for Porsche in this sizing. But if you want a nice beefy rim protector band, square shoulders, a wider treadcap and grip for DAYS, the Yokohama is pretty hard to beat. The PS2 is a great everyday driving tire with spirited jaunts thrown in - they just can be a little tough to get. They won't be quite as grippy in dry conditions as the Yokohama, but will last a bit longer and be more quiet.

Please call me if I can help.

Are these ADO8R's ok in the wet or are they a bit slippery like Michelin Cup's? The reviews make them seem like a great DE tire but less so for quiet street operation. As well, they'll definitely freeze every winter while stored in my garage on the car and be used occasionally in sub 32F degree weather.

I was very close to purchasing the yoko. For my use only dry conditions they would work regardless. What swayed me was the speed rating/weight rating compared to the Mich. it's not that I'll see 168 or higher just happen to like its made to that level.

Good point. Blow out resistance would be top priority.

And wouldn't it be fair to say Porsche is probably not deeming "N" spec tires, that are out of their current product range?

For what it's worth, I switched from PZero to PS2 last summer and I will never go back. The ride is a ton better on PS2 (more compliant, not as harsh). I also feel like they have more dry grip although the difference is not as obvious as with the ride quality (I can't really compare grip in wet conditions as I don't take the car out in the rain much ).

My car sits on Bilstein HDs and Techart/Eiback lowering springs.

Tires need to match the front. Either buy two new Contis or 4 new tires like Michelin PSS.
