I had Bridgestone RE960AS performance all seasons on my stock wheels, and they were great. A little on the noisy side, but not objectionable. Crisp steering response and excellent in even heavy rain. Treadwear looked great, though I took them off after putting 18K or so on them.
I've got Primacy MXV4s on my CLK wheels. I like them fine so far, . They're quiet so far, and they look like they'll be great in the rain, though I haven't gotten to try that yet. I don't quite agree that they have stiff sidewalls - I find them pretty squishy compared to the Bridgestones I had before. And the Bridgestones had taller sidewalls. It just depends on what you're comparing to.
I have to be honest, I bought the Michelins in hopes that I'd be totally blown away. I'm not. Don't get me wrong, they're very good, but I don't know that they're radically better than some of the alternatives.
I can tell you for sure that it's best to avoid Fuzion. They are a Bridgestone brand. I've owned a set, and my Mom has some on her Toyota. They work okay but good grief did they get loud as they wore. Like, "is that a bad wheel bearing?" loud.
