Tire recommendation?

I've got a little more tread left before I got to pony up the 750-1250 for a new set. What tire suggestions are there out there? I never see snow. Drive prudently about 80% of the time.

Michelin Pilot Sport 2s are pretty popular. Even if they will not see snow, they should not be used in very cold temperatures either.

Could you say moer about "very cold temps?" You mean that I shouldn't take those pilots out in mid to high 30s?

From the description on Tire Rack

"The Pilot Sport PS2 is not intended to be driven in near-freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice." Any temp under 40F is what I've heard. You should check out the M5Board for tons of information on tires (and any and everything else about our cars) as it is more dedicated to our model.

Just had to buy two PS2 fronts because I dented a front wheel and bulged a tire, and no one has original PS in stock even though they still have 6mm on them.

Nice way to spend a grand on two used OEM wheels and two PS2's.
