I bought my IS-F used with 10,000 miles and surprisingly there is still alot of tread left on the factory Bridgestone RE050A tires. Knowing that Lexus fitted some models with the Michelin PS2s, I would like to hear from anyone who has an opinion on one vs the other with respect to the ISF. I have the PS2s on my GS400 and I know how good they are. But, I want to make the right choice when it's time for new tires; taking into account everything (ride quality, cost, treadwear and looks).

Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 are on my ISF from the factory. In my opinion having driven ISF's with both tires, the Michelins are much quieter and grippy compared to the Bridgestones. The RE50A's are louder and seem to spin a lot easier.

I have the Bridgestones and will not be going back to them. I was quite suprised on how easy they lose traction on dry pavement.

I've had two really bad experiences with Bridgestones (Turanza and RE092). I've had pretty good luck with the Bridgestone's on my F and on my Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX.

I'd love to try the Michelins, but they are more than I want to spend. I may try out some other brands to see what I think. We'll see.

I'm also looking out for new tires which should be due soon. Any feedback on the Michelin Sport Cup? I was also looking at the Bridgestone RE11 but no size so far. Any experiences with the RE11s?
