Question Which Michelin?

I had a set of Michelin Pilot Sport Rib tires for a few hundred miles on my 17" factory rims and loved them. They were more quiet and much more grippy than the Perilli's they replaced.

As I am considering a new set of tires when the warm weather lands, I am wondering if I should get the Pilot Sport Rib for my new aftermarket 18" rims, or try the Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 that I have been reading about.

I read the blurb at tirerack.com about each of the tires, and the cost for each is about the same. I guess I am most interested in performance, wear, wet driving and road noise in that order. Any ideas?

When my Ribs wore out I replaced them with PS2's. I'm very happy with them. They have more grip and they ride a bit better over the choppy stuff. They're both excellent tires but, I think the PS2's are just a tad better.
