I have tried several brands: Bridgestone, Michelin (PS and Cups) and now run Yokos.

I have a 4S and I've usually run the Michelin PS2s but this last set, I decided to give the Hankook V12 evo K110 a try just because they cost less than half of what the PS2s cost. It doesn't feel as grippy as the PS2s but for the price I really can't complain. It definitely has even less grip wet than the PS2s, but it doesn't really bother me that much. I imagine that grip will be a bigger factor for you in a turbo.

I just started using the Continental DW Extremes. Had to go to 285 in the back, but they fit just fine. Ran the Tail of the Dragon on them and they did superb, and it was no joy ride either.

I've been pretty happy with Sumitomo HTR Z III.

Yes, I am on my second set of Sumitomo HTR Z III and really like them. I use MY98 as a daily driver and have winter tires from Novemeber 1 to May 1. Looking forward to putting the Sumitomo's back on.

Get the Hankook V12, they have the same load rating and speed spec (Z) as N rated tires. Sumitomo HTZ's don't have the same load rating or speed rating. Great reviews on the Hankooks

Tire Rack has some good deals on their 17" Performance Tires. The Sumitomo HTR Z III are under $400 for fronts and rears.
