Looks like my A032Rs will last longer than the oems which gave me about 7-8k mi in front. Of course the Yokos really stick in the dry, but I really take it easy on any wet surface, and I must say I don't try pushing the limit on these turns up/down to my house every chance I get like the oems.

I went with S02 Pole Positions on the rear. wet performance is very good, cant tell any other real difference in normal city/highway driving.

I got 10,400 out of the S-02's and just put Michelin Pilot XGT Z4's on the rear.

They feel fine so far but it's only been two days.

I love the S02 Pole Positions. I did all four. The seem to grip alot better in wet wether, other than that, I would say the SO2 non PP gave me a more exciting feeling in the dry.

If they truly last as much as I think they will, I'll probably order them again. Havn't thought about it much because they are wearing slowly and evenly. They are not as expensive as other performance tires and give very good performance with less noise than the originals on the highways, imo. I really think if you try them you will not be disappointed.

I have Pirelli P7000's and no way do they perform as well as the S02's. However, I think they will last alot longer. The jury is still out on them.

I got RE730's after much soul searching. I know that they are not as good as S02's but then most of my time is spent commuting.

I've had them for a week and have not noticed any difference at all. Of course if I were on a track, that would be very different. So, the jury is still out on these as well.

I am running 245/45's S02 Pole Positions on the rear, and I am very happy with them. Both dry and wet.

The non-pp's do stick better when dry tho, but not "that" much better.
