Default deciding on tires for ssei

Trying to decide on replacements for the 2000 SSEi. Goodyear RSA'* again (got 55k out of the oem'*) or replace with Pirelli P Net Zero M+*. Both have sizes available and same tread depth. Anyone else use the Pirelli'*? Cost is about the same (here in Canada about $1000 CDN installed ($850 us). Open to opinions.

I think I'm going with BFG KDWs for my tires this time around.....
Price is about $260 CAD (or about $125USD from tirerack.com)

alot of us with the 17" wheels move up to 255/50-17 tires.
i had 65k on my Michelins (235/55HR17) darn good tire , just wanted a wider tire and the BFG'* G-Force T/A KDWS only set me back $132.00 (US) a tire. the BFG'* have the same treadwear rating (400) as the Michelin'* so i hope to get about the same mileage. the 255/50-17 tire has the same diam. as the stock tires just a little wider. the car looks good with the wider tires, GM should have offered the 255'* as a option. did i say how GOOD the car looks with the wider tires.
