This exact question was posted recently, either by you or someone else. If it wasn't you, be sure to consider whether you ever want to drive across the Sierras in fall or spring, or over the Grapevine in winter, because there is an excellent chance you will encounter winter weather conditions doing any of those.

In which case, you might want to try the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S+, instead of summer-only tires. A bonus is they will last about 50% longer, as well.

If you don't track the car, you probably will never notice the difference between the A/S+ and PSS. You really don't want to take a summer performance tire anywhere near snow or ice.
