Default Need info ASAP on tire purchase

Getting ready to put some tires on the STi was wanting input on which tires to go with.

A) OEM Bridgestones
B) Pirelli P Zero Nero M+S
C) Michelin Pilot PS2s

Any help would be greatly appreciated I have already searched the forums just looking for more input, both positive and negative.

In ohio with the winters I'd hit up the P-zero nero M+s out of that list.

The others are summer performance tires and will leave a lot to be desired during the winter

If you do not have winter tires the PZero M+S are a good choice. If you have winters already you should look into the Bridgestone RE070 (OEM) or the SO-3's. Another cool new tire that just got it's DOT approval is the Advan Neova AD07's (OEM on new Lotus Elise). Otherwise I've heard good things about the PZero's.

I switched from OEM's to PZero Nero M+S tires about 3k miles ago and have been quite impressed. The Pirellis are really quiet and smooth on the highway (where I spend most of my time) where the RE070's were so stiff and loud, it was tiring. The RE070's weigh a ton, too, which has a negative impact on ride quality...there's about a 4 pound difference per tire between the 070's and the pirellis. The Pirelli's handle rain fantastically, but I've only been in light snow so far so I can't comment fully on that...they were fine in light snow though. For everything but the track, the Pirelli's excel, but I can see how someone who regularly drives their car to the limit might think the Pirellis are just too soft compared to the 070's.
