Tirerack.com has zillions of reviews. I'm considering the Michelin SS because they seem to have minimal tire noise, and they are a great tire. But, more $$$.

if you want to go to a non run flat, go with the super sport, amazing tire! might cost a little more but I think it has better tread life than most, rated at 300AA if I am not mistaken.

I have always been sold on Michelins and always had them on all my cars (it was nice when BMW used them as OEM equipment , bs that they stopped!). That said, I am liking the PZeros for performace right now. If I get decent life out of the Pirrelis, I will go with them again, if not, it's back to Michilin I expect. Tme will tell on this one and YMMV
