What tire for an 18" wheel has comparable side-wall stiffness, traction, and overall performance than the stock RE070's on the STi? This is strictly a dry summer performance question. Iím not concerned with how loud the tire is or how it performs in the rain. Experience?

Thanks

I've had S03's and they'll probably provide what you are looking for. Awesome dry traction. I have RE070's now but the S03's were on a different car and I'd need to go side by side to give you a fair comparison.

I changed to PZeroNero and it is much better than RE070.

as did i,

the neros are a much better suited tire for every daydriving, great traction, alot softer ride, re070 are stiffer in the sidewalls and heavier,
