In needs of tires

Tires failed NC state inspection. Looking for new ones for MY15 Ghibli SQ4. Any recommendations or anyone selling? Thanks.

2014 Maserati Ghibli SQ4 M157 (3.0i S)
Tire & Wheel Information

TIRE Pressure RIM PCD Center Bore Lug Bolts
Front 245/35ZR21 97Y 2.5 bar / 36.25 PSI 9JX21 ET35 5X114.3 67.1 mm M14 X 1.5 / 9/16 - 18 UNF
Rear 285/30ZR21 99Y 2.7 bar / 39.16 PSI 11JX21 ET35 5X114.3 67.1 mm M14 X 1.5 / 9/16 – 18 UNF

In my humble opinion the P Zero handles better with slightly quicker turn-in and slightly better grip with just a bit less oversteer, however, the Michelin Pilot Super Sport wears more even and has lasted much longer for me. Also, the Michelin seems to ride slightly better with a little less road noise. Being that we have 4,000 lb saloon cars, I don't worry about the almost imperceptible performance difference and have started using the Michelin tires for cost reasons (although I did not want to, I'm a Pirelli fan). P.S. I have gone through 2 sets of P Zeros and am currently on the first set of Michelins; it seems these first set of Michelins will last as long as the previous 2 sets of Pirellis.

I just changed my tires and will confirm: Pirellis melt. And they melt fast.

I now have Bridgestones on the front and Handkook on the back. 20 inch. The original Pirellis I was not happy with at all.

Check out Firestone's Firehawk Indy 500's. I've had them on for a while now and they are great. Much much better tread wear than the Pirellis and a little bit quieter too. Still has tons of grip.

I just put a set of Continental DS06 DWS on 19" OE wheels and so far love them. If you want/need all season tires, I have used these on multiple cars and like them much better than the P Zeros and I am usually a big Pirelli fan.

those are great tires, i'd have a tough time picking between the DWS and pilot sport as3+.
i've run those two back to back, and they're both top notch.
