I guess I have to go with the second choice, the Pirelli PZero Nero M&S. I don't think they're as good of an all around tire but from what I can gather they're in fact a good tire.
As long as no one has anything terrible to say about them I'm going to order them. I need tires soon.
Damn sorry to hear that. But if you need tires now what can you do. It is a shame that GY hasn't kept up with this tire. They have a Gold Class tire right there, and they are blowing it. They should offer it in every size known to man, and market it like they were doing about 2 years ago. It just plain sucks. I have no info to offer with the Pirelli's. Did you check Tire Rack to see the reviews? I love that part of thier website. I only look at reviews from cars similar in size and weight as ours though. It means nothing to a 4,000 lb Caddy, that a particular tire performed well, on a 2,500 pocket rocket. Well, I wish you luck with your purchase. After getting them, and going through some snow, post the results. I would love to read it.
I have around 30K on my Pirelli P Zero Nero M & S on my '01 STS. They are still as quiet and comfortable riding as the day I bought them. A little tire noise while cornering close to the limit but that's about it. I leave the pressures around 30 psi and have had excellent wear. Looks like I should get another 25K+ out of them with no problem. They've performed well in the New England rain and snow. The only issue I had was with balance. It took 2 roadforce balances to get them right. Next time I may try a set of Avon Tech M550 A/S. based on the reviews I've read.
i had the pzero's on an audi a while back, it only saw snow once, but they did get a decent workout in heavy rains. at $80/per I think you will be totally satisfied; as i recall it was a great all around tire; and the fact that i think i got somewhere close to 40k out of them wasn't bad either.
