I am in the market for a good all-around Summer tire for my 11 STI. Dry/wet Grip and non-excessive noise is the two most important criteria for me. Treadwear is not as important but still a consideration. I was about to get Pilot Super Sports but quanities are limited and I was told they could not be purchased through my wholesale connection.

I found three back-up options, Bridgestone Potenza Pole Position S-04, BF Goodrich g-Force Sport Comp-2, and Continental ExtremeContact DW. Some people have told me anything will be better than the stock Dunlop SP Sport 600's which I tend to believe as they're awful, but needed more opinions if possible.
I'm only stg1 7 mostly stock, don't track, don't auto X, I've been searching for tires, which came down to this.

BF Goodrich g-Force Sport Comp-2 or conti DWS.

they both are great for me to do HWY driving and some back roads.

I don't see the NEED for having S04 w/-350whp and non tracker.

Krzys

total diff is 4mm between the 2 tire, 245 or 255.

I'm went with 255/40/18 & BF Goodrich g-Force Sport Comp-2, as my new set up.
