I Just got 2 new Performance All season Nexen's They work great, are not loud, great design and look. You may wanna look into them or I have the Falken's on the back which I think are great also.

You looking at all-seasonal or summer-only? I've heard the G-Force Sports all-seasonal are good and cost about $120.00 a tire or the Goodyear Eagle GT for $102.00 off TireRack.com.

i've got a set of nankang ns-1, just got them about a month back. i think they're $65 or so on discounttire.com, i looked around and found them as low as nearly $50 a piece (215/45/17 btw), but they were lesser known sites and didn't include shipping, so i submitted the match-price thingy on discount tire, they gave the me the tires for i think about $5 less than they're listed price, free shipping. they're extremely cheap, yes. they're a lesser known chinese brand, yes. though one reason for the low price is its an older model from a few years back. i found some good reviews for them, given the price range. strapped for cash, so i tried them. after a week or two, i've got them broken in nicely, handling isn't the same as the falkens i previously had, but that's a given. as for road noise, they're not bad at all. probably not the quietest, but far from the loudest. i think they've exceeded expectations so far.

+1 BFG g-Force Sports. They're not very all season in my view, but they work great in the wet. Very quiet for any tire, and you don't have to ever worry about their quality for even a second. I recommend going with a big name brand and a line that's been out for a while.

yeah the proxies were loud! i had them before my nittos i have now and they were very loud at highway speeds. ive had the nitto neo gens for about a year now and they are a great tire imo. an all season tire and if ur lowered, they last a bit longer cause they have reinforced shoulders. nice and grippy as well. i look foward to on and off ramps and back roads. lol.

For the money, Falken 912's are hard to beat. Just don't expect them to be a good snow tire. For three seasons they're great and mediocre at best in snow (no better and no worse than most other all-season tires) Hopefully being in Wisconsin, you also use a dedicated snow tire.

If it's parked that much, go with a summer or 3 season tire. They can use their available space for just dry and some wet handling, and not "waste" space for ice or snow tread. I see more than one g-Force tire. The Sport is not M+S (Mud and Snow) rated, which is the newer official designation for all season (which is not an official term now). The 912 is a good tire, but it was designed with as much attention to winter as summer. Check out the Falken FK-452 for that "bang for the buck." Either that or the g-Force Sport will do what you need in the dry, and resist hydroplaning like not all summer tires do. There are other good tires in that category, but those are the 2 I've ridden on enough vouch for.

I just put a set of Nitto NeoGens on my car. 205/55R16 ... awesome tire. Really unique tread pattern. And I can honestly say I've never had a new tire install make my car feel so much better. They replaced a set of Fuzion(sp) that I was never very happy with. But yeah, the NeoGens are awesome, but maybe a little out of your price range. From Discount Tire they were 569 installed, with Discount's replacement certificate. Total replacement (free) down to 3/32nd tread, or 3 years.
