Stock SVT 17" Rims, suggestions for best tire in Southern Ontario, Canada

Guys,

Looking for a set of tires for the stock 2002 SVT 17" 5 spoke rims.

Right now I'm thinking a set of Michelin Pilot A/S 2, in 215/45/17 $730

but there's also the option of
BFG Comp 2 Summers ($660) or the Yokohama Sdrives for $630.

What would you go for?

its a daily driver now, but I'd like to get as much performance from the tires without going crazy on price and durability.

Any opinions are welcomed.

Thanks

I currently run the BFG Comp2's on mine, but I'm in the southeastern US. We obviously never see the same kind of cold you will see, so I'm speaking from my experience with them in my region. When the weather is warm, they are very good, wet or dry. I thrash on mine pretty hard, and they haven't let me down. They don't lose much in the way of grip when its near freezing, but I probably wouldn't want to run them if it got any colder.

3 season works best for those, but you have to tell us your plans.

One Bud from here (FF) uses a primarily Summer year 'round, but he gets few snow days in NYC and can leave the car parked for most of the bad weather.
