I'm slowly learning, the hard way, that Goodyear ( high end tires)
and Michelin have the best Quality in the industry.
The New Goodyear F1 All Season is getting raves. I love my F1 GSD3s.
People also speak well of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S
Neither is cheap.
The conti extremecontact is great if they are round and stay that
way. Mine weren't and didn't.
