I agree with the Dedicated Snows. But then the question about summer tires is:

how much performance is needed? The best rated tire at the moment is the Michelin Super Sport Max Performance tire. It's ~$200 per set more than say the best performing Ultra Performance summer tire (According to Tire Rack tests) the Bridgestone RE760 Sport.

Even if one doesn't drive 10-10ths often or at all, the superior steering response and overall driving experience of the best Summer tires brings out the best in your cars suspension but sometimes at the expense of harsher rides.

Making a poor choice in tires is one you have to live with for a few years.

Thanks for the comments guys.
