Michelin® Pilot Sport Tires

Hi guys ...

I've read the tire threads and you've convinced me. I've decided to replace the original Bridgestone Potenza run-flats on my newly acquired '02 SC430 (11k miles) with high-performance Michelin Pilot Sport tires. They seem to be the consensus choice for pairing roadworthy performance with strong, predictable tread life. Problem is, I'm not sure which of the Pilot Sport tire models will best suit the car.

Aside from the A/S (all season) model, which isn't of much practical value in tropical Miami, there are several different models and tread styles in the Pilot Sport line for the SC's recommended 245/40ZR18 tire size. The obvious question becomes, which tire/model is best suited for my SC430?

If you've had hands-on experience with Michelin Pilot Sport tires, I would appreciate your suggestions and recommendations on which model to buy.

Thanks.

FOOTNOTE: If you live in South Florida and would like to have the Bridgestone Potenza run-flats which are currently on my car, they're yours. Free. Remarkably, they appear to have about 80% of their original tread. However, please keep in mind that they're more than 5 years old. If you'd like to have the tires and are willing to meet me at Sears or Costco in northeast Miami-Dade County when they are removed, please post your contact information in this thread and I'll contact you.

Good morning:

Sorry I am so late on this but I added last week to my 2008 SC a set of four Pilot Sport A/S 245/40ZR18 93Y tires. The model # (MSPN): 75552. I paid $1,085 for tires, mounting and tax. The car rides and handles like a dream with them.
