From what I have heard, the S-03s are pretty soft and tend to wear pretty fast,
The Michelin Pilot sports tend to wear from the center pretty fast from my experience..

Tirerack has about 15 million plus miles worth of reviews on the S0-3s :

Why not just get a second set of wheels for use and maybe stick with a less agressive tire for the road?
