Which tire would you choose?

Hey guys, I'm going to pick up a new set of tires soon and I've narrowed down my options to three choices. Which do you like best and why?

I personally think the RE-11's are the best and I also like the way they look the best. But that is just my opinion.

Both the Dunlop and Yokohama's are awesome tires -- the Dunlop's I've had on the mr2 and Cobra for about a year now, and Yoko's I just put on the 335i and did a track day in them in 40 degree weather (with absolutely no unpredictability whatsoever).

Performance is identical on both but the Dunlop's transmit a little more road feel -- not really a big deal to me. Can't go wrong either way.

I was thinking of the RE-11s but they don't make 'em in 225/35/19 + 255/30/19 since I wanted to keep stock sizes. I used to buy a lot of Potenzas back in the day.
