V12 vs PSS

Just ordered a set of BC forged HB05s in 20".
Now please help me choose between Hankook V12 and Michelin PSS.
I know PSS is the best in its class, but V12 is $600 cheaper!

I just picked up a set of Hankook V12s. Heard great reviews on them over the years since they were released. I dont even have the rims yet so cant make any comment on them yet, but for the price you cant go wrong.

I ordered them from www.discounttiredirect.com They came in literally 3 days. And theres an $80 mail in rebate for them right now as well.

I currently have The V12s. Replaced the stock Bmw run flat tires. No problems so far and very pleased. Not a lot of road noice and comfortable ride. Of course my car is not dropped and my rims are 19s.

I have the V12s currently on my car and they seem pretty good. I did have the Michelins PSS on a different set of wheels (long story) for a short period of time. They are a very nice tire as well. I doubt I would pay $600 for the Michelins, but might try something other than the V12s just because I am always looking for something better

Just curious, anyone tried Falken 453? and how is it compared to V12?

I have the Continental's ExtremeContact DWS High Performance All-Season on my 2010 Maxima and love them, very good reviews on the maxima forums...

I had those (DWS) for a year. They wore well, but are too soft for the F10 chassis IMHO.
