If you are going to use the tires for daily driving during the warmer months then get summer tires. Get winter tires for the colder months. I wouldnt bother with all season tires.

For daily driving and the seldom track visit I wouldn't do anything beside Pilot Super Sport. If I was hell bent on tracking with daily..probably Pilot Sport Cup 2.

RE71's are overkill for DD and not tracking or autoxing. They will wear down fast, and you won't get them hot enough in spirited driving to use all the grip they can provide.

Consider saving some money and getting something lower than the extreme summer category. I had RE760 sports for summer and they were excellent for DD and back roads.

The RE11 was replaced by the RE71. Great track tire, but a sh*t street tire. Loud and wears extremely quick for a 200TW tire.

People also need to remember the Pilot Super Sport is gone. It's been replaced by the Pilot Sport 4S. So, distrbutors only have whatever is left in stock, and once those go, that's it.

So the Pilot Sport 4S is what you're looking for in terms of a summer tire with little to no planned track time. The Michelin AS3+ is a good all season tire, but it's no summer tire.

Depends on what you want.

The RE-71r is an extremely fun tire. Seems so silly when people say it's not a good DD tire... if you like sticky tires, it's amazing for DD.

If you want your tires to be quiet and mellow out bumps for you however, then you probably should look at something else.

I just installed pilot sport 4s on my RS and they are awesome. I highly recommend.
