If you don't want to replace the OEM's with a new set, my recommendation is
(out of your selection) the ES100 because their construction specs are most
closely related to the Bridgestones (with regards to tread width in relationship to tire width). The Ecsta, sized exactly as a Yokohama ES100, is a narrower tire.
The Azenis does not come in rear 16-inch sizes appropriate for the S2000.

I just got Ecsta MX on the front and I like it. They have both 205/55/16 and 225/50/16 sizes.

you should go with 245 in the rear to match oem SO2 size. 225 is too narrow.

khumo 712 : compound ain't sticky enough for the S2000
Falken Azenis : only 205/55R16 and 215/45ZR16 available in 16"
Yoko ES 100 : not as sticky as S02
