Steptronics Manual Mode vs. Standard Drive (Not the same feeling)

No regrets on my 6 speed manual..I like rowing my own gears, however,

Best performance enhancement is track time...with an instructor. Period.

As I recall, the wear rating was superior for the PSS's-compared to the Potenza's..For me, too early to tell-but couldn't care less.
