The stock ContiSportContact 2 tires aren't all that bad in overall performance, and they're a good chunk of change cheaper than the PS2. The PS2 is well recognized as a great tire, so you can't go wrong with it, you can just go cheaper. The general consensus on the Pirelli tires is STAY AWAY.
I just switched over my front tires to the Toyo T1R, and so far I have been happy but I need another week or so on them to really decide what I think. Once my rears wear down I'll be switching those over to the T1R as well to match (running ContiSportContact 3 on the rear...a puncture forced me to switch out the fronts early considering how little wear my front tires had after 13k miles).
