my rear tires (GT600) are coming to an end. Are the Dunlops worth the extra coin? Heard good things about MPS4's but run flats are my only choice.

I highly recommend you go with same brand/model of tires front and back.
Going another route puts unnecessary stress on the poor 4wd clutches during spirited sessions.

Don't get the Bridgestone's. Check the forum, but suffice to say they are bad when cold and in the wet, especially when more than 30% worn.

If you want runflats then get the Dunlop's

Michelin Pilot Sport 4S or Cup 2

Why are able to only use run flats?

Not had any issues with Bridgestones in the cold.
I would stick with Bridgestones if that's what's already fitted.

I met the man from Michelin on Monday (not white with big rings and fat) and after considerable discussion he is coming back to me regarding recommendations regarding part track/road tyres. I will let you know when I get the answer. Pete

I bet you he recommends Michelin Pilot Sport 4S in 265/35 R20 front and 305/30 R20 rear.

Bridgestones are truly awful as John says. Lethal in wet.

Dunlops and try the NR1 spec (Nismo) which are on tyreleader etc at very reasonable rate - they only do 6,000 a set though FYI

I guess I'll stick with GT600's. Makes most sence since I only need rear tires..

I think it is a good route for now.
Not all that fun to spend cash on replacing good (front) tires when it can be spent on gas :-)

I actually rate the Bridgestones but both are good either in the wet are a waste of time imo.

Likewise.
I found them good for fast road driving with the only bad thing being the tramlining imho.

I can only speak on the MP4S tire being better than the Dunlop DZ102

Dry/wet performance is better. The Michelins grip doesnt brake away during accel like the Dunlops do.

Can't speak on wear, but the wear rating on the Dunlops is higher.
