215/45WR17 Yokohama AVS ES100-what I am looking at.. On Tirerack.com they had a pretty good review. But I would like to see what everyone else says since thats what I want.

Yokohama AVS ES100 would be my choice. Nitto doesn't have the best grip, at least from past experience. I go with Yoko on my ride.

the 'Ho's aren't bad, little road noisy, but have great wet traction in my opinion as well as minimal sidewall flex with the lower profile, this turns into good corner handling, but gives up a little bit of straight ahead traction. Not much mind you, but just a bit. Good all around performance tire, for a really good price. Has a killer tread pattern too.

I'd stick with Yokohama just because of their reputation.
