Here's my opinion on tires based on my street driving: had S-03 for about 18K, handled excellently in dry and wet. Was very  impressed with the wet handling. I am a very spirited driver and want the max performance on street, so the noise level didn't bother me. Switched to PS2 about 8K ago. They are as good or slightly better than S-03 in wet and dry, but are much more responsive and quicker. The PS-2 also seem to be wearing slower. FYI PS-2 available at Costco for $190 each complete with everything ( balance, road hazard, tax, etc)

ALIGNMENT QUESTION -- Dealer now tells me that AoA no longer does alignments under our prepaid maintenance contract. Seems that AoA can change this contract whenever they want, just like they only used Dino oil in the past. I went for an alignment to NTB. They couldn't do it. The alignment machine display said that to adjust the camber they needed to adjust the subframe but they didn't have the necessary special tool to move the subframe. Does anyone know anything about this? Is it true that only the dealers can do alignments at $190- 250?
