I have been pleased with the Bfgoodriches. Decent all season. They don't work in snow very well but have good handling and decent dry traction.

I just put on a set of the Goodyears....man they are awesome compared to the stock Conti's that were on it. I'm not one to try to peel out all the time, but the Conti's seemed like they couldn't get grip and I always would (however, these were the stock tires, at ~6 yrs old)....with the Goodyears, its actually a challenge to break them loose.

I'm very pleased with them so far, but I've only had them for a few days. I'm curious to see how they handle in snow, but they've been great so far in the rain.

BTW, another set I was looking at was the Dunlop SP Sport Signature....they look like they might be a better AS tire. I didn't get them cause they were gonna be more expensive than the Goodyear's since they were special order.
