Default RE11A OR Pilot Sport AS3 Plus??

Help me decide what is the best option for me?
Got Subaru, these tires will only be dedicated for summer since I own winters,
I barelly will be going to track or autox so this will be mostly for daily driving..
Like the title says which one should I go with RE11A or AS3 Plus?
If there any other tires in that price range besides these two feel free to chime in

You're a little confused. RE11 is a summer tire. PS AS3 is an all season. If you're looking at all season you might want RE97. If you want summer, I'd highly suggest Pilot Super Sports.

I really enjoyed my RE11As. The RE11A is the mildest extreme performance tire which makes it really good for a DD and one step up from max performance. Quiet, sticky and very good in the rain for what it is.

I want summer tires that will be used only for summer and daily driving, any thoughts on RE71R?

RE71R is essentially the replacement of the RE11A.

The RE71R a much more extreme tire than the RE11A. Much better for magazine ratings and autox, but less good for a great DD performance tire.

Either will be great for DD?

RE-71R replaced RE-11A (which is no longer in production). I tried to buy some RE-11As in January and the guy told me nobody has any more... At this point they were for dedicated track wheels, so I'm going with the RE-71R unless something better comes along.
