FecalRocket I'm currently running dunlop direzza dz101. They're cheap and handle very well. They did good at autocross this last time I went. If you want good but won't bust your back pocket then get the dunlop z1 star specs. Those things are awesome.

That is one of the main reasons I don't buy all season tires. Plus you don't really need them around here.

Thugology101 Goodyear Assurance ComforTred Touring
Michelin Primacy MXM4

When I called TireRack and told the guy my tire size and priorities (all season traction first, noise second, wear last) he said one of these two hands down. I did some more research specifically about the Michelins and they are highly rated by all. But call me what you must, my Focus will remain parked and covered for snow. I would normally drive my Ranger and would rather wear the 35s than risk some paper ass gasket sliding into my car. But since I just bought my wife a Bronco II to make into a wheeler for her but it's still stock... SCORE!

Quiet in an A/S is very important to me.

slow3v ExtremeContact DW for summer.

Hands down.

If you dont drive like an idiot when its cold out then you will be fine.
You have any recommendations for a summer tire?

mikebontoft not mention those actually look pretty cool as far as tread design goes... though nothing beats a bfg gforce 2 in style.
