Don't know where you live but check out Discount Tire - I looked at a lot of tires and decided on the Yokomoha (forgot the number) but it's made for Discount by Yokohoma - it's a good all around tire - I personally did not want an ultra high performance tire rather a good all season tire - so far I am happy with them - they were excellent in the snow and ice in the NW and crossing mountain passes - The car does have some road noise but that's mostly a function of the road surface - when the road is really good the car is almost silent when it's a rough surface the road noise does come through the car. The car handles highway speeds wonderfully. You don't have a giant choice in this size, most are ultra high performance which seemed a waste as far as I was concerned.
Hope this helps - you can always go to Costco and buy Michelins at 280 a pop - these cost around 150 a tire plus mounting, balancing and tax brought it to around 700 for the set out the door - I thought that was a good price
