Congrats sir, I just got some AS/3+ 2 weeks ago myself, currently saving the pennys for wheels or failing that just swap out with winter tires.
Let us know how they drive, you may be the first to actually pick up a set of PZero's on the forums.

Pirelli are on, had a chance to test them a bit, yes we where getting snow this morning, they are smooth, they handle very well in wet , now of course the sun is out, I will put them through the dry tomorrow, so far so good.

Tire Rack, tested the four brands, Michelin As-3, Conti DWS-6, Bridgestone Re 980 as, and Pirelli PZero as-plus. They all did well, the Conti we're the top in wet, as Avedis53 as said, The Michelin did well in dry, the Pirelli did well all round, I like the Pirelli, I also have the Sottozero-3 for the winter.

Congrats. Have you noticed any road noise increase? Size? What air pressure do you run?

I'm at TPMS warm pressure 40 front, 38 rear with my 255's. I have TPMS on my dash. 4 quick button presses and they display.

I seriously think the increased road noise is due to cutting my wheel and brake rotor weight down.

I think the heavier set up, OEM, assorbed more vibration. So the transmitted noise is a bunch louder. For now I'll just turn up the stereo, crack a window, or tilt the sun roof.
I'll probably need new tires this summer so am thinking of switching from the AS3+. Note: I absolutely love the handling of the AS3+, not bad with AWD in the snow. I have snows too.

I'll be running 33-35PSI front/rear most likely, I won't have the tires mounted and on the car till next month most likely
we always get a nice snow fall during May-long so waiting for that at the very least.

Naturally I'll phone in the results once they are on.

As for your extra noise have you considered some sound deadening material behind the plastic in the wheel-well? It's minior weight increase
and will be spunr and you can probably cut the noise down by 1-2DB for maybe $50-$60.

Someone went super cheap and used spray on rubber-sealant on a G37 around the wheels and under-body and got some decent results out of it.
