Only after 4 months? This is not good.

What other tyres would you recommend? I currently have PS2s.

everyone i know recommend PS2's to me. i went through continental conti sport 2 ,falken ( not recommended ), and pzeros.

conties handling is the best the only problem is on morning the steering shakes until the front tires gets warm.

Ran the Bridgestone RE050 PP's and PS2's for a year, just switched to the new Conti Extreme Contact DW (not DWS). Rain performance is very good. Dry grip not as good as the PS2's, but better than RE050. A good compromise of cost/performance IMHO.

Current:
2008 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti (special)
2007 Maserati QP Sport GT DuoSelect (daily)
2008 Lexus LX 570 (wife)
2006 Acura RSX-Type S (kid)
2006 Chevy Starcraft Express Van (hauling/camping)
2012 Fisker Karma (green)
2006 E60 M5 (157K miles)

Self destructed:

2008 E60 M5 Dinan Stroker (broken rings, very bad Dinan experience)

Previous:
2006 Mitsu EVO IX MR (50K miles of fun)
1991 E34 M5 (120K miles)
1988 E28 M5 (168K miles)
1989 Alfa Milano QV (only car I sold for a profit)
1987 Alfa Milano QV (awesome handling car)
1966 Ford Mustang 289 A-Code (bought from original owner, should have kept it, just couldn't)
1990 Alfa 33 1.7 IE (sold when I left the UK)
1980 Alfa 33 1.5 (my first car)

What didn't you like about the Falkens? I was thinking about a set of FK452s to replace my worn T1Rs.

What is the different between Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 and the PSE OE? I know OE means original equipment, but any different in performance? Thanks...

I am sending Tirerack an email to see if they will sell to me and deliver to Aus.
Hey Dallas, try these blokes MotorSport Wheels and Tyres They did a great deal on the latest P Zero's (255/35-20 & 295/30-20) $2750 to my door. They dabble in unusal brands and sizes .Paul put me onto them, they imported his 21" Pirellis.

BTW have you heard about Paul aka M5 VTEN ? TRAITOR !! sold his M5 and is now rolling around in a brand new AMG C63 !! (I have inherited the "M5 VTEN" plates (at a price)).

I like the PS2s a lot, but their walls are rather soft.

So, I was hoping I could get something with stiffer walls. The track season is here.
