Recently saw this post from Southeast Tyres and they have stocked up the new S007a tyres from Bridgestone

I went to their website and the tyres look quite amazing on the performance. However, I find the thread pattern a bit bland compared to RE003 and S001.

Michelin PS4 has pretty much makan the entire UHP tyre market in SG. Almost every tom, dick or harry car running lower profile tyres I see the distinctive new-gen Michelin PS4 side-wall mouldings....

https://www.tirerack...el=Potenza S007

The Potenza S007 is Bridgestone's Max Performance Summer tire originally developed as Original Equipment for the 2013 Ferrari F12berlinetta. Designed for high-speed vehicles requiring maximum levels of lateral force due to their sporty setup, Potenza S007 tires are performance tuned for dry and wet conditions. However, like all summer tires, they are not intended to be driven in near-freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice.

Bridgestone is proud to have been selected to develop tires for the most powerful Ferrari series road car ever produced. The Ferrari F12berlinetta ushers in a new generation of Ferrari 12-cylinders in the form of a car that delivers unprecedented performance (0-125 mph in 8.5 seconds and a top speed over 207 mph) from an exceptional new engine, innovative chassis design and sophisticated aerodynamics.

Bridgestone engineers designed the Potenza S007 based on construction and materials technologies developed during Bridgestone's 14 seasons as official FIA Formula One tire supplier. To meet Ferrari's specifications, these technologies were combined with Bridgestone's advanced knowledge of tires at the molecular level, helping to optimize the mixture ratio and reaction between carbon, silica and rubber, which reduces rolling resistance and fuel consumption.

Potenza S007 tires feature an asymmetric tread design with wide outside shoulders and unyielding notched-ribs to enhance steering response and grip on dry surfaces. Wide circumferential grooves help channel water through the tire to preserve wet traction.

The tire's internal structure includes twin steel belts reinforced with two layers of spirally wrapped nylon to blend high-g cornering with high-speed durability. The casing features rayon cord and a specially tuned construction to enhance cornering grip, even under the most severe load conditions.

For me, F1A3 still the best. 

 

Although currently on CPC6 due to no suitable tyre size for F1A3 for current ride (crossover). CPC6 also performing very well (better than i expected).

I always felt the road surface actually is the major determinant of road noise. When the road is "quiet" type, the tyres i used were all quiet and when noisy, all tyres also noisy. 

 

That said, i have not tried ALL UHP tyres in order to agree or disagree with the above and also noise is not an important criteria to me (i already accept that it won't be quiet). To me, i judge: handling, braking and resistance to aquaplaning. Tyres that i have tried (what i can remember) S001, RE001, 002 & 003, PS3, PS4, Sportmaxx (can't remember which one but was bad), AS2 & 3, CSC5, CPC6.

actually i agree with u. I used KPE and TPE every weekday. huge difference in road noise once i exit KPE to TPE.

 

it's easier to differentiate grip than noise

i once changed TURANZA to POTENZA. Can feel the immediate difference in grip.

sometime the Noise is from road not tire

 

Many factors when comes to cabin noise generated by the tyres from the road. 

 

1) type of tyre - usually low profile good tyres are noisier. (want quiet go swap with attrage slim tyres)

 

2) age of tyre - as the tyre age, it gets noisier. everytime i changed to a brand new tyre, its ALWAYS quieter even same brand same model same size. 

 

3) road surface - as mentioned by others.

 

My 5 cents.

Kinda agreed with your statement.
GY F1A3 is one of the best all rounder with dry grip on par with PS4, CSC6.
It's not noisy, and the dry grip is good till the end of life.

It only had run flat for my size and so i went with PS4/PS4S, personally, i don't find big difference in performance in them except the michelins being noticeably noisier.

For CSC6, i think it may be a tad quieter than GY, but not much diff. The thread life seems to be the shortest among the 3.

I've used F1A1, F1A2, F1A3.. great value tyres. Time to change tyres. Heard F1A5 or F1 Supersports are coming starting Feb 2019...
