I know, right?! I just don't see any way around not having a second set of tires if this thing is your daily driver and you want to track it and you're not a big baller. I hope to have my new AS/3's installed this week... at 12k I am 1000 miles overdue on these goodyears.

Gotta pay to play.

True. Definitely gotta pay to play. I just want a tire that will last at least 15-20k on the rear and have a stiffer sidewall than all seasons. I want to keep the ride characteristics the same without replacing tires more than once a year also lol. I could deal with loosing some traction capabilities because I don't track my car, but loosing handling capabilities doesn't have to be synonymous with more comfort. Mabye Sukxost can chime in with his experience with Continental DWS's or Justice Pete with his impressive knowledge about everything lol.

I get your point, but I said three season, not all season. Spring, summer, fall.....parked winter. And I said as an option. I'm not asking them to change anything that comes on the 1LE package. Choice means everybody wins.

The Michelin PSS are better than the Goodyear F1's all around, track or street based on my experience...they have great grip wet or dry....

They should send you a sticker or a tee shirt or something.

The good years are less expensive than the Michelin As3 on tire rack.

I just replaced my Goodyears with Michelin Pilot Super Sports. I got 315s for the rears. I love them. Night and day difference in cool weather performance.

The stretch doesn't look too bad at all.

I love the way the stock Goodyears look, I don't think I will change when they wear out

If I could afford them... to replace them every 10-12 thousand miles I would do the same.

I had the A/S 3s put on today. My first first impression is that they turn in quicker or respond quicker than the goodyears.

These have a tad over 12 k on them...

I wished that goodyear made alittle harder compound stock tire where you could choose to have a longer wearing tire but look the same.

I will soon be installing Nitto NT05's on all 4 corners. I'm going with 315 35 20 in the rear and 275 35 20 for the front. Personally, I can't stand the look of the "stretched" 285 on the rear of my car, and wish they would have installed 305 35 20's in the rear like the ZL1.

The reason they are not as stiff is because Michelin wanted the sidewall to be able to flex under high loads on the track so the majority of the tread would stay flat against the ground for better traction. I am not sure of any other tires but I would assume all seasons would have a softer sidewall than the Goodyears.

Are there any tires out there that are a good replacement for the stock Goodyears that actually have stiff sidewalls and don't wear out in 10k or less miles?
I just installed the PSS and did not notice any "bouncing" during my first drive. I do think they are a smoother riding tire over rough pavement. Grip seemed very good, dry pavement and about 56 deg. Haven't driven in rain yet so can't comment on wet performance.
