New tires recommendation

It is finally time to get new tires for my 2011 gt500 with svt performance pack. The last part makes tires a little tricky. I need all season tires because this is my daily driver, but in the south so I am not worried about snow. The stock tires are 265/40/19 and 285/35/20. With over 550 hp I need something that is sticky but I would like something with decent treadware if that's possible. Any help or opinions are GREATLY appreciated. I am not a fan of the stock f1 supercar g2s.

No personal experience with these but the sound pretty good for all season tires.

Michelin
PILOT SPORT A/S 3+ (W- OR Y-SPEED RATED) (comes in your sizes)

BFGoodrich
G-FORCE COMP-2 A/S

A car with that much power really deserves separate summer and winter tires. I HIGHLY suggest picking up a set of cheap wheels to throw some winter tires on. If you can afford a GT500 you should be able to afford winter wheels/tires.

But...
The michelin A/S3, continental DWS, or BFG comp-2s are the best all seasons out there. Just keep in mind, all-seasons are really "no-seasons" and aren't that great at anything. I'd stick to stock sizes regardless.

Agree with the separate wheels and tires for winter. But if he doesn't track it

I've had the summer tire version of ^those. Good tires IMO. They run just a little bigger than most, so they may look a little plump compared to maybe a Nitto of the same size. I would have bought these for myself if I was looking for all season tires based on how well they drove in the rain as summer tires.

I am looking at the Michelin pilot sport as 3+, does anyone have any experience with these? As far as winter tires, where I live never gets snow and rarely sees ice.

New tires recommendation

I put on them on my 3.7 in October also. Live in Wisconsin and use them daily. So far I'm in love.
