My Pirelli P-Zero Nero M&S squeals easily, but even when they squeal they keep hanging on. Even after they start to squeal I can still push them a lot further and they'll still grip. I haven't yet been able to exceed the grip limit of the Pirellis in the dry on the street, and I do some crazy cornering sometimes, but I keep underestimating these tires.

just got some Nitto NeoGen ZR 225/40/18 92W. these are the top rated ConsumerReports all-seasons. they are M&S rated as well. love them so far. quiet, smooth, and they handle better than the stock 215/45 RE050A on the ms6 probably because of the width. i'll let you guys know how they handle in the snow after this weekend.

edit:

omfg. these tires rock and so does awd. 2 feet of snow during a blizzard last night. didnt slip once and got through everything with no problems. i love this car.

I just ordered a set of Yokohama Avid W4S all season tires 225/45/18. The reviews were all good and I was looking for something with some light snow traction. Anyone have a any experience with these tires?

I don't know about the SPTs, but I agree that the K104s on my ATX are mighty sticky - at least as sticky as the Supra 712s on my MTX, which are all but worn out now. The ride is much more refined with the K104 too, but the 712s are nearly silent compared to the K104s. In either case, however, I find it hard to complain for the price!
