Sorry to bring up an old thread, but it is time for new tires.  :)

First off, will a 225/60 fit on our cars without any interference?  The 215/60
does not seem to be a very common size.

Second, what are people using and liking?  I'm looking for an all around tire
here.  As Tire Rack classifies them, a high-performance all season tire.  I live
in Boston.  The car sees the snow every now and then, but not enough to justify
snow tires (there is snow on the ground, what, about a dozen times a year?). 
Right now the car has Yokohama AVS S4's on it (came with the car), I like em ok,
but they don't make then in our size anymore.

Tires I am looking at:

Michelin Pilot XGT H4 - Looks like a good overall tire, but a bit on the pricey

Bridgestone Potenza RE950 - This looks like a great tire, at a good price, but I
know nothing about them, other than what I read on TireRack.com
