So here's my cart at tire rack, lol...

So far, I'm leaning heavily towards the Continental ExtremeContact DW tires. Dry grip won't be quite as good as the others, but I'm sure it will be light years ahead of my old Cooper all-seasons. It's the lightest of the bunch at 20# each, has the highest treadwear rating @ 340 (I know it's relative), and is also the cheapest by far. Reviews say the tire is very quiet, which is also a plus for me. Versus my old setup, I'll be dropping almost 8# per corner.

Other random thoughts:
I like that the BFGs are made in the US.
Star Specs are probably too noisy for me.
Love the Ventus R-S3 tread pattern the most.

Anything I'm missing?
