    So, I need something "sporty," but it has to be reasonably quiet and can't cost an arm and a leg. I won't need them immediately.

    Suggestions?
    Since you have the PSSs, I will suggest these. I've been running these on my V2 as a bridge to PSSs coming in our sizes. They are quiet, wear very well, they give you 85% dry grip of the PS2, are good on wet pavement, phenomenal(incredibly) in deep standing water and, well, look at the price...

    2 good recommendations for decent summer tires, but I wouldn't recommend them on the track namely Hankook V12...read reviews of getting crazy greasy after a couple laps.

    Re: GSD3s Getting Louder and Louder

    Prices are pretty good ^^^, actually. In all honesty, those are the two I've really noticed when I was first considering tires a while back, especially the Conti's. PSSs are more than I want to spend.

    Drove the V today on the expressway and a bit tonight. I mean it's howling loud! Sounds like the diff had all the lube drained out, it's that loud. I know it's the tires because even if I put the clutch in and coast, the howling is still present.

    No idea...doubtful. like I said, good recommendations for summer tires that don't see the track.

    I have the same tires on my V and am very happy with them. We dont have much in the way of twisty mountain roads here in the midwest, and I dont run the car on the track. The RE960's do everything I want them to do and they do it quietly. I am very happy with my choice of tire.

    Yep, I run them 150 mph on the Autobahn and I run them around the Nurburgring. They're a little soft in the corners for the track, but they hold on well enough that I was able to get 1.29g's out of them. For everyday driving they are excellent. I've been debating going with Direzza Star Spec's, Continental DW's, or the new 970's for my Saturn...it's hard to not get the 970's since the 960's were so good.

    I wish. Would love to do some autoX events, but can't plan anything at my household.

    No test comparisons that I could see. Didn't watch the vid.

    Oops...thought that was a sarcastic question directed at me/my response.

    Since he said he doesn't, your recommendations are perfect for his needs.

    Re: GSD3s Getting Louder and Louder

    Interesting that you're having noise issues with the GSD3s - I had them a while back on my Subaru and don't recall having any such problems.

    As for suggestions for replacements, I'm running the Continental DWs on both the V and the Subaru and they're great. Quiet, smooth-riding, fantastic grip in the wet and in the dry. They've only been on the Subaru for a couple thousand miles, and maybe 5 or 6 thousand on the V so far, so I can't really say how long they're going to last.
    '05 Stealth Grey CTS-V, Hyper Silver Linea Corse Venetos w/Continental ExtremeContact DWs (summer), black Team Dynamics ProRace 1.2 wheels with 275/35-18 R-compounds (track), Hyperblack Rota Torques (winter), KW Variant3s, V2 front brakes, Hotchkis rear sway bar, EPS cam, TEA-ported 243 heads, FAST92 intake w/LS2 TB, JBA Camaro/G8 1-3/4" shorty headers w/JBA cat pipes, Corsa exhaust, UUC motor and tranny mounts, UUC shifter, MAPerformance trailing arms, Specter cradle bushings, etc...

    No problem. It wouldn't have been the first time if it was a sarcastic response.
