I put on Perelli P Zero Nero'*. Love em. They are very very quiet. Good wet and dry tires. I did a lot of research using Tire Rack'* search engine (reading reviews) as well as studying they're test results. I paid around 120 per tire at a local tire store.

The Potenzas (RE750s and RE950s) are very popular in the Grand Prix community. I had stock RSAs on my 99 GTP and replaced those with Bridgestone Potenza RE950s. I went with the 950s since I needed an all season performance tire...the 750s are more for summer. When I got my summer wheels for the GTP...they came with Michelin Pilot Sport A/*.

Both of these have been great tires. The Pilots seem just a little bit noiser than the Bridgestones, but I would consider purchasing these again.

FWIW - My SSEi has the RSAs and I have to agree..wet traction sucks...just like they did on my GTP.

I second the P Zero'*. Extreemly good tire. Best rated tire for the 17" in tire rack, and cost less than the stock GY'*.

I second that one.

Just got some P-Zero Neros this month. Holy crap is that a difference from the RSA'*. Try discount tire america. I got 'em there for cheap (118 ea on clearance I think)

Waaaaaay Better than the RSA'*.
You who never get snow can run them but those of use from the northern plains can only dream. I ordered the Bridgestones from Tirerack and they actually talked me out of them when they saw where I lived which is how I wound up with the Pilots.

...I stayed with the Goodyear RSA'*,.....never had any problem with noisy running,mileage(or lack thereof), traction in the wet OR snow......and the Stabilitrak electronic stability control system MORE than makes up for any traction gain(or loss thereof) that any other brand/composition/make tire does(or doesn't)have,........plus the fact that I got a set for $643.(with tax)[$160 a tire],balanced,mounted,old tires disposed of,.....and the first tire rotation is a big 'no charge',.........I'm thinking,what'* not to like?!?

Those of you who bought the Pirelli P Zero Nero'* last year, please tell me how they performed in the snow and how the treadwear is doing.

Thanks!

Just a note... If you're feeling cheap, Stay away from Goodyear Viva 2'*. I can burn them. On my 2-1 downshift. At 25mph.
