Well still pondering the A/S option at the moment. The Michelins have great reviews everywhere, they have their 45k mileage warranty plus the $70 rebate which brings the price down a bit. I don't intend on taking the repair/replacement certificates since the roads in TX are pretty decent.

I know the Contis are good, but I've read that the (comparably) softer sidewalls take away some of the road feel. The Potenzas - I've had them on my Subaru (RE960) and now the 335 (RFT). Although they're both summers, I've developed a strong aversion to Bridgestones from those experiences.

My stock tires still have decent tread on them but they're just too damn noisy.
