ContiProContact SSR vs. Potentza RE960AS

Does anyone have any experience with these two tires? I'm talking specifically about the 225/45/17 size.

I had the conti's on my car orginally, but traded wheels after about 12,000 miles. The new wheels came with Turenzas which have now worn so unevenly they have to be replaced. I definitely liked the conti's better than the Turenzas. Had no issues with the conti's in terms of performance. Obviously they took the bumps hard, but weren't too bad.

I understand the "ultra high performance" RE960AS tires would perform better, but that's not my main concern. I'm equally, if not more concerned about the ride quality. These new 3G tires are supposed to ride more like a regular tire.

I've read conflicting reports. Some say the conti's are quieter and softer ride, while others say the opposite.

Has anyone gone from the conti's to the 3G potenzas?

Thanks for any help and input. I'll probably get the potenza's anyway just to try
