I have the exact same question. After experimenting with a number of high performance "dry" tires, I find that despite manufacturers' claims, they are about the same when it comes to regular driving. Of course having your time shaved by 0.1 seconds means the difference between between winning and losing on the track, it means practically nothing on the road. First of all, I don't drive at the limit to realize the full benefit of these ultra performance tires (Pirelli P700Z, Goodyear GSC, Bridgestone RE71), however I am feeling all the disadvantages - harshness, bumpy ride. Most of all, these tires are almost riding on being dangerous in a downpour. I am looking at the SP9000 because of its boasted wet performance and the wearability. I am waiting for a Tirerack wet test "www.tirerack.com"
