You may want to consider the Toyo Proxes 4 as well.  I got them for my A6 when I put my 18" OZ's on.  Even in 245/40R18 they were about $140 per tire.  That's not cheap, but it isn't ridiculous either.

I've been pretty happy with the road noise and the tire wear is respectable for a performance tire.

I have finally gotten tired of listening to my Stock Pirelli P6000's and 
am looking for some new shoes for my '01 B5 S4.  Right now i am having a 
hard time deciding, because i have no experience w/ any on my list.

As with most of the S4 drivers, I use my S4 as my daily driver.  My 
driving style is quite spirited.  Wet & Dry Performance is extremely 
important, as well as LOW ROAD NOISE.  Also, these tires will never see 
a track or snow.

So, here is my list, all 225/45-17(in order of my preference):
 1. Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3
 2. Michelin Pilot Sport PS2
 3. Michelin Pilot Sport
 4.  Kumho Ecsta MX  ( friend's recommendation b/c of $)

What I would like to know, do any of you have experience w/ any of these 
tires?  If so what type of experience have you had in terms of 
performance, wet traction, and road noise?     Are there any others that 
people can highly recommend?  

Now for the for sale part.  I have one (unfortunately) mounted P6000 
225/45YR17 with < 1 miles on it. One of my in law's gardeners damaged 
one of my tires and I got a free one out of it.  My inlaws had the new 
tire mounted b/c i was traveling when the incident happened.  Anyways, 
the tire still has the little spikes on it, and is still in BRAND NEW 
condition.   It now sits as my spare.

When I get the new set of tires, I will most likely sell this tire, or 
keep it for the spare.  I am happy to email pictures if you are 
interested.   The tire is located in San Antonio, TX (78233).   If you 
are interested, please contact me via email.
