Tire Recos for 2003 360 Spider

I'm running PZeros on front and rear. Front need replacement. Was tempted to go with PZeros despite high cost but reading some posts on here several folks said less than favorable things. Some mentioned Bridgestone Potenzas but not sure if referencing RE 760, S-02 or RE050A? Others mentioned BF Goodrich G Force but not sure if referencing T/A KDW2 or T/A KDWS?

Anyway, open to suggestions as I'd like to pick up some new front tires this weekend. THANKS!

My 360 Spider came with Pzero Corsas and I like them. I fully intrend to replace them with the same when the time comes.

If you are only changing the front, you should get the same tire because of potential negative effect on ASR. I replaced all four on my 360 with Hankooks for a third of the price of Pzeros and am very happy.

I would stay with the Pirellis.

Definitely not the Bridgestones.

Thank you for all your guidance. After much thought, I went with Michelin PS2s all the way around. Had to upsize front from 215 to 225 but sounds like that isn't an issue (hope not). Rear are stock size. I made appointment at local shop for installation this coming Saturday. So not fully confirmed yet so if any of you have any major concerns with these tires, let me know and I will cancel the order!

Thanks again, you guys ROCK!

How are those PS2's working for you?

Out of curiousity, why did you decide to go with those over the Pilot Super Sports? Not having them available in the OEM replacement sizes?

'99 550, Rosso Corsa / Nero, S/N:114654, Assy: 31836, Engine: 52084

High mileage, low compression, and missing on a few cylinders.....just like my cars.

Thank you. Actually, I couldn't make my appointment on Saturday so I still haven't had the new tires installed. I looked at the Super Sports but was swayed by the great reviews on the PS2s since they've been around quite a bit longer. I will have a look at the Super Sports again.....

Thank you.
