Any suggestions?

Hi, Trish, welcome aboard.

Please click user cp and add your vehicle (including year) and location to your profile, it's useful information and displays in the left frame under your name.

The new member forum is really just a place to say hi; for specific model or tech information, cruise on down the main forum page until you find the R171 or R172 forum (depending on your model year) and then ask your question there. You'll get plenty of help, in part because there are some great guys in there, and in part because they are guys and you're female.

Okay, seriously, IMHO if you're only replacing the rear I'd stay with something very close to what you have. Mixing tread compounds could upset the handling in unpredictable ways. When you have to replace all four, then you can consider variables like long life, traction, ride quality, noise, etc.

Here's a link to the roadster forums, when it opens you'll see the 171 and 172 listed.
