Question Tire replacement opinions

The ultra soft/super expensive Pirelli's that came with my Brembo '12 GT are nearing their wear indicators after a whopping 8500 miles. Does anyone recommend a specific tire to replace them for daily driving?

Well ultra high performance tires will wear very quickly, if you sacrifice grip then you will get more tread life. There are many options, the Tire Rack has the comments section where customers usually comment on the tires characteristics as well as tread ware, that might be a good place to start.

Michelin Pilot Super Sports will offer better wear and better performance. I also like the new Yokohama ADVAN Sport V105
