Experience w/Conti Extreme Contact tires?

Does anyone have experience with the Conti Extreme Contact tires? Out of all the tires I'm looking at they have the highest wear number of 400. They look like a pretty aggresive tread pattern for summer which is when I will be running them as I run winter wheels and tires during the nasty Michigan winters. I'm also thinking of the BFG g-Force Sports, less aggresive tread pattern but more summer friendly and quieter. Another choice is the Toyo Proxies 4, any word on that tire? Thanks in advance!

I have a set in 205/55/16, I've been happy with them. I've put about 18,000 miles on them, maybe a bit more than half worn, not quite sure. It is an all season tire though so the performance will not be up to most dedicated summer tires. But They are cheap, and as you mentioned have a high treadwear rating. I now have winter tires and will always in the future so I'd rather not buy all seasons again.
