Why do you want 19's??

For a car like ours 17 inch rims are the best for tracking/handling purposes. I recommend the arc-8's. They are extremely light and durable. You can't get the pilot 4's yet but you can still get a great tire in the 17" range.

P4S just crushed the PZ4 and new ExtremeContactSport in TireRack test. They mentioned the PSS a couple times, but did not directly compare the two.
New tire looks like a nice option to be sure.

I'm not sure I fully buy this test. I suspect both the Conti and Michelin are very similar. I wished they used an M3/4. I find Michelin great when brand new; yet, deteriorate in performance with more miles. Not so much with the Conti ECS. They did state the Conti has the higher ultimate grip. Plus, I think the Conti holds up better through more heat cycles.

Here's my review of the Conti:
