Many good options out there...Michelin Pilot series, Nitto's and more...research the market, choose what meets your requirements.

I have no idea what "round black ones" are but I'm guessing its a kick-a** brand!

What kind of weather will you be driving in (wet/ dry weather performance)? Will you be using these tires year round (winter)? How will you be using the car/ tires (daily driving, track)?

There are too many un-answered variables to suggest a specific tire.

I would go with Round Black vs Triangle.

For typical weather, bit of sunshine, some rain and a few track days - michelin pilot sport 4.
(for all around usability)

I'm just about to sling some Yokohama AD08R's on but I'm doing frequent track days and no daily duties.

I'd recommend those as well but they don't make them in my rear size now (stock rays 245/45/18), thus PS4 for me in the UK.

Did they stop making them, because I have that size?

Yes, at least in Europe, maybe you guys still get them?

I'm running BF Goodrich g-force sport comp 2 summer tires - seem to grap the road really well.

Thank you very much for help me! I opted for the new Pirelli Cinturato P7 tire set, which was really great on the road

Nobody recommended that but hey, if you're happy.
It looks like a winter tyre (which might be what you need depending on your location).

XXR rims


2008 350Z Touring Coupe.

I am running 27540 ZR17's BF Goodrich G Force Comp 2 A/S back and front. Car came fitted with XXR rims as well.
I find these tires very noisy but excellent grip Hard ride

Curently on Toyo Proxes 1 (not T1) max perf. They are a bit noisy and a little rough but they stick like hot glue making them a bit hard to read because they act a bit like slicks in their steering response in dry.

Wet performance isnít anything Iíd depend on. That said, probably a decent HPDE tire.

About time to switch out to one of my other sets.... anxious to compare current to my old stuff. (Volk or LMZ5 on Bridgestone S04 Pole Position and/or a newish set of top secret fun.) 🤡

I'm looking at replacing the Bridgestone Potenzas on my 2003 350Z. I live in Florida and never drive in snow but it rains sometimes (like everyday for an hour during the summer). I'm looking at a summer only tire as opposed to an All Season tiire. The Bridgestones hold the road well but they are super loud. My experience with Michelin Pilots has been they hold the road but are a lot quieter than most tires and they wear better. than many out there.

I'm also running 18" tires. WOuld changing the aspect ration either from 45 to 50 or 40 affect anything like ride, responsiveness, etc?

Why did you chose Michelin over other brands?
