Default 2012 370z Sport Package -- Need new tires soon

I am definitely due for 4 new tires. I can go to the dealership or Discount Tire. I bought this car used a couple of months ago and aggressively used up the remaining tread on Bridgestone Potenza's.

I have 24500Mi. This is my daily driver. I plan to drive the new set spirited but not aggressive. What tires do you recommend and not recommend?

Here's Discounts choices:
Tire Products By Vehicle - Discount Tire


What were the OEM? Were they any good?

Thanks

I would also be leaning toward dry tracking since I live in Texas. I don't need all season.

OEM tires are Bridgestone Potenza RE050A.

I would suggest getting Michelin Pilot Super Sports.

S04's for quick handling.

SuperSports for comfy softer handling, so i read.

also check out Continental DW's at tirerack.com. i think these are pretty similar to the supersports as far as handling, but you loose some grip per the survey's.

Conti DWS All-Season or DW for more all summer-ish feel.

I'm getting michelin pss's when my stockers are bare. Never driven pss's but everyone here and in other places iv'e checked rave about them. Or Bridgestone potenza re-11's from what ive read are great too. people seem to think the pss's are a great street tire and good track tire, whereas the re-11's are a great track tire and good street tire. You probably can't go wrong with either but I'm definitely getting pss's when mine are done.

Yikes! OEM Nissan is sure proud of them. The guy at Discount said the eo means something like OEM and tends to cost more.

I am on a budget; Both the Michelin Pilot Super Sport and Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus are out of my price range as well.

Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sport look ok. Any other recommendations for under $1200 out the door for a set? Preferably Summer and Z Rated.
Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position?

Yep, S04's at tirerack's sale price is a very good buy. I run them on my G. Wet and dry traction is very good.

I decided on the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position tires.

Discount tire does not carry N. I could ship them to the dealership if there is a sale and have them mounted and filled with N there or refilled.

nice!

meh, forget about nitrogen unless you have wheels that have 2 valve stems. you cant get all the air out inside the tire with only just one valve. unless there is some magic they do. everyone likes magic.

That's been my concern as well. I would be limited to the dealership for repairs and fills if I go nitrogen. I like the idea though.

I decided its just easier to do it at Discount. I might find a reputable station to swap the air out for Nitrogen.

FYI

Discount Tire
Front Size 245/40R19XL 98Y BW $219.00 each
Rear Size 275/35R19XL 100Y BW $242.00 each
Out the door $1072.89 (includes other fees...not sure if this includes sales tax or not)
$30 Visa Prepaid Card Mail-in Rebate when purchased with your CarCareONE Card which I will use.


Tire Rack
Front Size 245/40R19XL 98Y BW $214.00 each
Rear Size 275/35R19XL 100Y BW $239.00 each
Out the door $????? Since you have to mount them yourself somewhere and everything else
