Hard to go wrong with any of these three. The Yoko AVS Sport does get a bit louder than the S03 as it wears, and although it comes close, it does not match the the wet and dry grip of the S03. As CooL_dudE mentioned, the Pzero Nero is a bit quieter and smoother riding, and comes close to the AVS Sport and S-03 in handling. Might be worth considering!

How does the weight of the AVS sport compare to the s-03?

... but then again, you might not care, as you're running 19's anyway.

Problems.

Good question, how about the weight, of Yokohama, and Bridgestone? Wich tire weights the most.

I got H&R coilover, and i have slammed the car as much as i can, and it looks tight to the coilover, i need a tire that is very stretcht over the wheel. i got 8,5-19" ET 40.
isent the Yokohama a very square rim, and Bridgestone more round?

I couldn't find the weight of the S-03 in 235/35-19, but the 245/35-19 weighs 28 lb (12.7 kg). Couldn't find the weight for the AVS Sport either...

The sectional width for the S-03 is 9.6", while for the AVS Sport it's 9.7". I found both figures from the manufacturers' websites. Both are for 245/35/19 mounted on 8.5" rims.

My car came stock with Bridgestones, and I opted to put Yokohma AVS Sport tires on there when I replaced them, and I've never looked back. On my last car, a w202 C230 Kompressor Sport, I originally ran Pirelli P1000 or whatever and those ran out really quick, faster than any tire I've had; so I replaced those with Yoko's as well. I'd say go with the Yokohama.

i had S03s for a while too and the tramlining was insane on my boat. i now have Yoko AVS Sports and they're not bad. They have this obnoxious whining noise when i decelerate (just road noise from the tires i guess) but perform fairly well and look really sweet. i'd get them again.
