Does anyone Potenza RE760 Sport tires

Time to replace my Pirelli P-Zero tires and I am looking for a less expensive and more practical option as I only drive in the summer and not on track.

My Firestone guy has suggested the Potenza RE760 Sport. From what i read they look to be a good option. Does anyone have these or another option at that price point?

fronts Sprt 93W 17' 140.00 each
backs sprt 94W 17 197.00 each

Thanks

I have them on my Audi A8.

Obviously a way different application on my big car compared to the Boxster. At the price point I like them a lot. Good dry traction (I used them on the track, don't ask) and low noise levels. I would get them again.

I had a set of RE070s on an RX8 and was very happy with them except they picked up a lot of punctures. They were QUITE soft and sticky!
I was more happy with the Goodyear F1 GS-D3, on the RX8 and I am very happy with Sumitoma HTR-Zlll I currently have on my 987-S.

I have them on my other car, they are good. Pretty good traction and reasonably quiet. So far I had 10K on it and barely can notice any wear on the tires (no negative camber on my toyota, expect it to last longer than on boxster).

I have them on my 2001 S and they seem ok. Grip level seems to be there but I haven't driven a similar boxster s with Michelin PS2's on it to compare with. I pushed these tires pretty hard last year and seem to be forgiving before they let loose. Wear seems to be minimal at best. I can't really see any where on mine at all.
