was going to go that route but I got all four for under a grand at onlinetires.com

pretty damn good deal and I wanted a softer compound tire.

I've been staying true to the oem bridgestone potenza's on my 2012. Can anyone comment on these please.

The OEM Potenza's that came with the ISF is an awesome tire. I would put them above the PSS (and PS2's that came on some ISFs) for all out performance on the dry track.

Just the Potenza's are expensive for the wear rating and wet weather traction isn't that good. PSS' are a very good all around performer, ie track + good wear rating + wet weather + relatively low cost.

What? PSS are about as expensive as you can go and are the highest rated in it's category.

OEM Potenza RE050A's (and OEM PS2's) made specifically for the ISF are over $300 each. PSS' are ~$250 each. As stated previously, "relatively low cost" especially for the performance PSS offers.

There is also the ~$170-200/tire range, but then are sacrificing performance. I have ran those sub $200 tires (Hankook Ventus v12 k110 evo, Continental DWS, Kumho SPT) and they make the car less enjoyable as all of them squirm under hard driving.

WOW! Great discussion as usual from the CL ISF population...thanks.

I have gone back to my wheel guy and along with us trying to make a non-staggered setup work on my ISF I have also decided to go with the PSS. On the non-staggered setup, I am not going to compromise the car to make it work. Meaning I don't want to use spacers or have any daily rubbing issues. My wheel guy is really working with me to figure out my options (wheels, tires, etc...) that may work with that set up. For instance we have ordered a wheel 19x9.5 +38 (but no tires) so we can test fitment for the wheel first (brake clearance, etc...) before I incurr tire prices, shipping, etc... Once we find a wheel that works (non-staggered) or "not"...then we will order my PSS in the size we need...this is a process but I am trying to go with a setup that has a certain look but without compromising the car...wish me luck!

If you are running the same offsets front and rear, you will be compromising mechanical performance. Any time you change the position of the wheel centerline from design spec, you change the suspension's performance.

Without doing a lot of other homework, you'll need to hope for the best and determine the results by trial and error. I truly wish you the best of luck, I'd like to run a square setup too, but I haven't put the time into measuring the chassis (I really should do this...)

Thanks...I figured if I got a non-staggered set up to fit, it is going to compromise performance to some extent...heck even going away from the stock offset will do that as well...I just don't think I will be putting the car in a position to notice the impact...what is important for me at this point is what has to be done to the car to make a non-staggered set up work like suspension, camber, rolling fenders, etc...I guess I will get to a point where it will not be worth it and go back to staggered but I owe it to myself to at least give it a shot and my wheel guy is into helping me while keeping my cost of trying at a minimum.

Not exactly sure what u mean by measruing the chassis...interested though if u wish to explain?

Start by reading this. This is the first step in understanding how to effectively modify your suspension, regardless of what you drive or what you eventually intend to do with the car. AFAIK, no one here has done this yet, or if they have, they're not talking.
