Looking to replace the existing tires on my 2002 Syder GT:

Continental ExtremeContact Sports XL DW
Fronts: 245/35ZR19 XL
Rears: 275/35ZR19 XL

It appears Continental has discountined the ExtremeContact Sports XL DW summer tires (DWS all season are still available). I can buy new DW (probably old inventory) but I worry that the DOT date might be either beyond the recommended 6 years or very close to 2014/2015.

Any suggestions on comparable tires?

Thanks in advance!

Get Michelin Pilot Sport 4S, its one of the best available and you can't go wrong with them. Its the OEM tire for most supercars these days and are significantly better than the P-Zeros that would've come with this car from the factory.

If you're on a tighter budget go for the Firestone Indy 500 (rebranded Bridgestone RE003) or Nitto Invo/NT555 which are well regarded as a more affordable performance tire.

Pilot sport 4s is great like twinspark said. If your just taking the car out during summers or only good days I personally would step up to the ps2 which is more performance oriented but again it’s all on weather and driving style

How are either the Pilot 4S or Indy500's in the rain?

Purchased my Michelin PS4S from 4wheelonline last year. Wet traction is not phenomenal, but you will be fine as long as you don't accelerate hard.

Sorry to hijack this thread, but is there a recommendation for the stock 4200 wheels?

235 40 R18
265 35 R18

There seem to be no Pilot Sport 4s for the rear.

Cheers,
Michael

+1 Asymmetric 5's..very well reviewed in both dry and wet performance.
Personally running Vredestein Ultac Vorti atm. No complaints for the price point but fairly easily overwhelmed for rear grip in the wet....
