^^^^The S001 is very similar to the Bridgestone Potenza Pole Position S-04 replacement tire. I run the S-04 on my ISF. I think it's a GREAT tire.

The OEM Michelin tires performed better in track testing reports I've seen, and have better treadwear and traction ratings. However, the Bridgestone was specifically designed for the LC as an overall driving tire (not primarily for aggressive track driving). One cool (purely cosmetic) feature on the Bridgestone tire is the series of Lexus "L"s around the edge of the sidewall (yes, this was intentionally designed into this tire!).

Yes, that's what I have.
