Perfect timing!  I'm looking for new rubber as well, with the same
requirements!  Car currently has Yokahama AVS S4-V, which the car came with and
have been very good, but I don't think they make them in the right size anymore.

I am open to all suggestions.  Looking for good dry weather performance, and
able to deal with the limited snowfall we get in the Boston area.

Thanks much!
