Talking Anyone need new tires yet?

Just wanted to see if anyone needed new tires yet for their 2011. I have a feeling that once this motor is broken in, i'll be buying new rear tires.

Once you look at the price of replacements, you'll think twice about leaving the traction control off.

Funny you asked that, I'm taking delivery on Friday and I was thinking about putting on some Michelin Pilot Sport PS2s. I put them on my 06 after it already had 30k miles on it and I thought I had a new car. Traction was much better, dry, wet, didn't matter. After I put headers, CAI, new rear gear on my 06, I had to lower then tire pressure to 31. I could run at 32 with the Pilot Sports. They are almost 400 a piece though for 255/40ZR19. I do remember thinking tho, next time I'm going to replace these tires when the car is brand new. It's no secret, most OEM tires rate poorly on tirerack and other sites. I guess I'll drive first and go from there.
