Hope you get that vibration fixed.
I just replaced a set of Pilot sport A/s (used for 4 years) for the Goodyear f1 a/s on my 01RS a few weeks ago. To me the Goodyear is a better tire all around. It's a bit quieter (general road noise) and grips better, especially in the wet. Light snow performance is comparable.
One thing I am really pleased with is that the Goodyears tend to be less disrupted by mid-corner bumps. There is one onramp on my daily rout with a surface change mid corner (somewhat sharp corner near the end of the ramp) that the pilots always slid a bit when they hit, pushing just as hard with the Goodyears you'd never know it was there.
