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!

Sorry i should have been more specific. The DWS have the softest sidewall i have ever seen. trying to have fun with them has nearly got me in trouble a couple times. Washington has some really nice roads and i have probably pushed these tires farther than most people will.

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

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.
