I'm going to need some new tyres for my SZ in the near future. Any suggestions what to go for?

I replaced mine in 2013. I spent quite a bit of time researching and went with Bridgestone Potenza RE 050 in the end. Very happy with them.
Some people suggested Toyos but I thought they looked wrong on the car. The tread and the lower profile on the 16 inch wheels looked all wrong IMHO.

I had sticky Pirelli Pzero Corsas on before this.

I think I was one of the people who suggested Toyos, I have them on my SZ and they've been great. The front and rear are different series of Toyo simply because the older rears didn't perform well in wear/noise tests so I went for a more modern design for the fronts.

The grip is much, much better now.
