One more vote for Dunlops!
So far (only have 700 miles) I like the factory installed Conti's that are on my SVTF now.
Made in Germany usually means fine quality.

I've heard alot of people bash Dunlops and I cant imagine why, since on my Probe I have Dunlop SP8000-ZR's which look very nice/aggressive and have lasted very well. The grip and handling is awesome too. They keep their composure clear up until the speedo is buried at 140. Perhaps not the best tire if you're looking for occupant comfort though. I think they might be a bit noisy, but then the ProbeGT is anything but a comfortable ride, it's designed to drive, hard!
I've found the USA made Dunlops to be very good. Expensive, sure, but I will probably buy them for the Focus when that day comes.
