In my experience, TireRack does a pretty good job of reviewing tires and the user feedback is generally helpful.
Yeah, go look on the Internet for reviews on Michelin Pilot Super Sports and variants. I've had many Pirelli, Falken, GY, Bridgestone, BF GoodRich, Continental, etc. tires on my previous Porsche Macan Turbo, MB AMG, & BMW. My 700HP/TQ GT-R wears only the Michelin Pilot SS now; all others are crap on the GT-R, imho. In fact, after the horrible Bridgestone runflats that came with the GT-R wore out, I switched to the Michelin Pilot SS and never looked back.

The Michelins are the BEST all around tire for sports cars and sports SUVs. The Pirelli's are good but softer, while the Michelins have the best dry AND wet traction as well as longer tread wear. Hopefully you'll have good luck with the GY's on the I-Pace.
