I'm looking for a good daily driver tires. The size I'm looking for is 215/40/17 or 215/45/17. I'm looking for a tire with decent tire life, decent speed rating, and not to expensive. All season or summer only works for me. Thanks.

I'm currently using azenis. They only lasted about a year. But that is alot cheaper than I paid for them last time.

I personally like the Bridgestone Potenza g019grid. Great treadwear, low road noise, and if I do say so Myself, sticky as hell. Not terrible price either...

I wouldn't recommend the GS-D3's Im running on now, but i would get a set of ContiExtremeContacts. They have VERY good treadlife!! and are decently sticky too!

Those sounds nice and tire rack has them for under $100 per tire.
The Fusion HRi is cheap, and lasts almost too long. I know from personal experience. They last long enough that you wish they'd die so you could try something else out. They're not particularly sporty, but just a solid high performance all season. The DZ101 price has been lowered, and should outlast the Azenis, while being comparable in performance. I'd advise against the Star Specs for daily driving. They REALLY need heat to work properly, and because of that won't keep their stickiness as long as they keep their tread.

I bought 4 Yokohama s.drive from TireRack. $108 per tire but they rate really well and treadlife was major factor for me... they're one of the best in the price range.

General altimax HP I just paid $425 with alignment there is a $50 gift card back in the mail. I drove though a nice puddle or small river on the highway at about 80 and I shot straight across no real pull to the side. I am quite impressed really quiet. It is a dirrectional tire though.

Several good street tires that retain some sporting manners, are relatively affordable and get decent mileage:
Check tireracks testing and ratings for several others.

For a daily driver, I would go to tirerack.com or discounttiredirect.com and just get the cheapest all-season and summer tires they have. Nowadays tire manufacturing technologies are fairly mature and tires are all pretty well made.
