Default Need help: Yokohama ES100 vs. Pirelli P7000 SuperSport

Like the title says.

I am looking to get some new tires on the stock 16" in the stock size. I've had the the Toyo Proxes T1S, but they wear out waay too fast for my checkbook.

I'm looking for something that has good grip, good rain, and lower noise (at least lower than the toyos).

I am stuck between the Yoko and the Pirelli. I want to get at least 30k miles out of them in normal driving.

The local DiscountTire is asking $432 on a set of Yokos, and $499 on the Pirellis.

Any input would be greatly appreciated. I am planning on getting one or the other at the end of the week..

you're in Georgia ... correct ? ... why would you be willing to sacrifice dry and wet traction to be able to go through the snow ?? which is exactly what you would be doing by getting the P7000 Super Sport which is an all-season tire .... also the P7000SS is an extremely noisy tire .... I guess if you want your car to sound like a 4 wheel drive truck when you are driving down the highway then the P7000's would be a good choice

I got new Yoko's ES100 235 45's

I actually tried to spin out in rain...... I couldnt. That was in hard stopping, yanking the wheel, and near clutch drops.

They are a great upgrade if you dont want to go the Kumho-Hankook route. The tread pattern looks MEAN under the car.

I have the Yoko AVS dbs right now. It's probably been on my car for about 8 months ~ 8k miles. I wouldn't get these tires again because my earlier set: Bridgestone Potenza RE730s were better than these tires. They handle a lot better than my AVS right now (even when my AVS still has 80% tread off and 730s with 20% left). The AVS seems to lose traction easily but they are indeed a great tire that is quiet and a last-longing tire. < If that's what you want most.

My next set would probably be either Kumho 712s or Yoko ES100.
