Purchasing tire advice

Was looking to purchase new set of tires for my 05' ZX3, but I'm still learning about tires and I was hoping you guys could point me in the right direction. I don't have too much to spend but I want the best I can possibly afford(around $300-350).

So far I'm considering,
  • BF Goodrich Advantage TA
  • Dunlop Signature II
  • BF Goodrich g-Force Super Sport A/S
  • Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Season

So please help me make the choice, and if you have a better selection please let me know !

Thanks !

I'll let users of those tires comment on their personal experiences.

For research & learning about options the Tire Rack site is excellent.

You can look at their general tire info articles, check tests they do on various tires, and look at reviews from purchasers.

Looking at the reviews can be useful after checking the basic info & narrowing your choices. When looking at the reviews, try to concentrate on ones from folks with similar car size & type - and look at what THEY are looking for in a tire. How well it works at high speed or in an auto-X doesn't apply when you're looking for quiet ride & good wet traction for example.
