I tested 2 sets of tyres on my lexus is 250. And here are my findings.

 

Perelli zero Nero gt 235/40/18 on all wheels:

Good grip. Smooth ride. Comfortable. Good fuel economy. No road noise. Very confident in the wet.

 

When I added spacers I had to change my tyres because front was rubbing to

Perelli p zeros

Front 225/40/18 Rear 255/40/18

Less grip on back wheels. Lots of wheel spin and poor fuel economy. Engine works hard on these tyres. More road noise. Harder lumpy ride. Less confident on wetter roads. Need to be scrubbed in. I've only done 300 miles. They are getting better. 

 

 Think I'm gonna go back to the zero Nero GTs.

Much better tyre from the moment of installing

I tried Pirelli tyres on my AMG and they were an absolute nightmare! Slightest bit of damp and I might as well have been driving on ice. No grip at all

The Michelins I replaced them with were like night and day. Phenomenal grip in all  weathers/ Plus I nearly got 12k miles from the rears before replacing them at 3mm tread depth.

What michelins are you using now?

The AMG went a few years back. Now driving my RC on the factory fitted Dunlop Sport Max. Very competent tyre, quiet and grippy in the wet.

If I manage to wear these out during my ownership I will probably go back to Michelin, with the Pilot Sport4S
