Thanks to everyone for sounding off on the tire selection issues. After much ado and I decided against Discount Tires suggested Federal Tyres. On ebay, I found a bunch of high performance tires at great prices and luckily one of those dealers (actually a couple of them) are here in Houston. After visiting there warehouse I found a good selection in a variety of possible combinations. To make a long story short, I put on a set of Pirelli P Zero Directionalles. They had 8/32 of tread on them and are very clean. Drive out cost was 400.00 for the set; mounted, balanced, tax etc...
They also had a good selection of pairs of Michelin Pilots, Coniti Sports, Yokos, and even some Good Year f1's.... If this works as I expect them to I will not buy new tires anymore and will likely try all the brands as time goes on.

I will report from time to time on the Pirelli's but for now I need to reset the sensor on one tire. Thanks a bunch everyone.

I need more information. I'm in Houston and I will be needing a set in the next couple of months. Where did you go? I am leaning towards the Pilot Sports unless I can find someone that has the Toyos that can remove the run Flats without tearing up my rims and can road force balance.

Yep, the guy they have working there did a nice job mounting and balancing. Its is not a fancy place but it works for me. I noticed several other sports cars coming in for tires while i was there too. They had Pilots in stock in both 245 ad 255. 2 of each so you could do that as well.
