The PS2s that come stock are among the best tires you can buy. Not sure you're going to find anything with more grip than them other than just running drag radials on the back....

I personally favor the PS2 and upcoming PSS. But for simply max grip in a street tire, the RE-11.

I'm going to continue to purchase OEM PS2s until PSS's are available in both OEM sizes.

I went to the RE-11 and I love them. IMO they are better than the stock tires.
I also have rear 305's now.

Did you have the PS2s in 305s?

Exactly. Plus, its very easy to love the feel on new tires to old ones, no matter if the new ones are truly better or not...

Any difference in the sound levels with the RE-11's or the PSS? To me, the stock PS2's seem very loud on certain road surfaces.

To me the RE-11's are more quiet than the PS'2s. I did buy my car with 8k miles, so they weren't brand new either. I love the RE-11's tho.
