Here is a thread with my top picks.

The Hankooks are the best bang for your buck.

I bought the Toyos and I am pleased so far, though no rain here yet. Subtle change from run flats, just a tad softer ride. Quiet too.

I had a terrible experience with Hankooks. They were the noisest tires I have ever had, the ride was rough and at about 40k miles they began to cup. Never more!

I love the Continental DWS tires. They ride & handle great, & a good price!
