Just wanted to say thanks to the group for all the suggestions.  I 
finally decided to go with a set of Mich Pilot Sports P2.     I got a 
good deal on them from my local costco w/ road hazard / lifetime 
rotation / lifetime balance / lifetime repair.    Plus all of this is 
good at any costco in the US.   Not too shabby..

Thanks again.
