In Reply to: Tires: So2 pole position or Pilots Sports? posted by ///p on February 08, 2000 at 21:19:09:
I have tried the G-forces but to bumpy and not good traction on wet. So far the S02 are the best tires I ever had that perform excellent in Dry and wet. Now I see the new Pilot Sport with a very similar tread design as the S02.Reading in the Tire Rack test they seem very comparable but the tread wear. The S02 are 140AAA and the Pilot Sport are 220AAA. My tires have about 6000 miles and the rears may go another 2 to 3000 miles. The front ones are new.
Try not to go bigger than 235/40/17 and 255/40/17. It will make the car taller and will affect the handling. The sizes mentioned above are very close to the stock diameter.
