I'd like to use a tire like the PS2 but
1) Michelin doesn't make them in our size and
2) I'd think about doing the Continental version (DW's) but I have a set of the DWS's on the XC60 and I really don't like them.
3) I really like the Bridgestone S-04 PP's on the 328 but again, not made in our size.
4) The P Zero System's are crazy money.

So it's down to the Azenis or Potenza or P Zero Trofeo's.
The knock on the Azenis RT625K+ is that The Rack's road test showed the Potenza's performed better.
The knock on the Potenza RE-71R is that they are loud (in the TR8, who cares), they don't wear well (I drive very little total miles a season so again, don't care) and they have a very firm ride (Missouri roads are actually pretty good so not an issue).
The knock on the Trofeo's is they're a bit pricey and really aren't a street tire. They are more quiet and have a softer ride but will really wear out fast.

I just really would hate to chuck the nearly new NT05's without knowing for sure a different tire will meet my expectations.

So these are 6X15, +22 mm offset?

Looks like it. They are the TR7/8 recommended wheel.

They require their own lug bolts and allen key, by the way.
