    i should note that i will have dedicated winter tires. so snow isnt an issue. rain isnt too bad either, but they will be used for everyday, rain or shine.

    Here are some sites you may want to look, they have much better pricing and other other tires you may be interested in.

    http://www.tires-easy.com
    http://www.performanceplustire.com
    http://www.tiresunlimited.com/vred_tires.htm

    By the way have you heard of Vredestein or Marangoni Tires? I heard Vredstein have a good reputation in Europe for being very competively priced and perform well. M3 and Porsche guys sometimes run these tires. I currently am using Bridgestones Potenzas RE050A but I may consider Vredstein for my next set of tires.

    Hankook Ventus RS-2 in 215/45 cost $102 on TireRack, so shop around.

    Bridgestone Potenza RE-01R are really nice but $$, I would get them.

    I voted Toyo on your list.
