PZero Corsa and the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup Tires on the street

Wheels and Tires

Vehicle Information: Year: 1994; Body Type: Convertible; Total Mileage: 6,000;

I have a 1994 Speedster that I use as my weekend fun car when the weather is nice - most of the year in Marin County. I am looking at getting a new set of tires for the car. I am not concerned with mileage and am looking for a set of tires that would give me the best possible dry weather handling - cornering in particular. There are two tires that have piqued my interest: the Pirelli PZero Corsa and the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup. I realize that these are both "competition" tires with DOT approval for street use. My thinking was that as long as the tires do not need to be warmed up significantly before they deliver, they might be a fun alternative to something like a PZero Rosso, which would likely be my fallback choice.My Speedster is stock with the exception of being lowered (new springs and chassis tune). I would intend to use the stock 17" wheels.I don't race the car and have no plans to do so. I have raced in the past and grew up on Highway 1 and 101 in northern California and get a kick out of great handling on tight roads. Any thoughts or advice on which way to go?
