What's the best road tire to replace the OEM Cup 2s for an R? Unfortunately, no tracks near me so only street driven. The OEM Cup 2s are about done at only 4,600 miles. What's the best replacement for both performance and tread life? I've read the PS4s are good but they don't offer the backs in 315 only 325.

Agree, Super Sports. They are the tires that are used on the cars at the GT350 Track Attack racing school. Plenty of grip for on the track if needed, but will last a lot longer than the PS2's and don't tramline.

Michelin Sport 4S. Brand new on the market if not too late.

Are you running Michelin Pilot Sport 4S | 305/30ZR19 - Front | 325/30ZR19 - Rear?
No. I just ordered 305/30/19 for the front and 315/30/19 for the back. Michelin just came out with them two weeks ago. Discount Tire had to call their supplier and request them because they are so new. $380 for the rear and $359 for the front. 30K tread warranty, but irrelevant if you are having fun with your car. Still better than SC2.

Thanks! Btw, where did you get them installed? My Ford dealer won't touch the carbon wheels.

Discount tire assured me that they can do it. Or will buy a new one if damage. Also, I called a few dealers in the area. Some have specialists that can handle the swap. One dealer in the area said they can do it for $400. If dealers sell the car, they should also be able to service it. Check local dealer service departments. Discount tire charges $6 per tire to mount if you buy from them. I also like to buy warranty for the tires. Out the door for $1796.52.

I'm no help, but just FYI that wheel lock will only slightly inconvenience criminals. They will still get your rims. Might take them an extra 10 seconds a tire.

I have SS, tracked the car twice now, they are great.

Just replaced my SC2s with Michelin Sport 4S one hour ago on my 350R. 305 in the front, 315 in the rear. 315's just came out one month ago. Rides and turns amazing. Holds the road great and does not collect as much rocks. Discount Tire did it. Did not feel like wearing out SC2s. 4S have 30K mileage warranty. Make sure they (Discount Tire) use all new plastic parts on their machines to decrease chances of scratching the carbon fiber wheel. They also use black weights to make it less noticeable. It's kind of crazy that all Ford dealers sell 350s, but not all can service them. $400 difference between dealer install and Discount Tire.
