Decided to surf before deciding to buy... The opinions vary greatly, but that is what I am after. I have a 98 Tiburon SE with Michelin XGT V4's - 195/55/15. Finding a high perfomance all season in this size is tough. The dealers directed me to 205/50/15. Which brought up several options. I'm not fixed on budget, but need to stay within reason ---> So I'm looking at Dunlop's D60A2's, Goodyear GTII's, Cooper Cobra's, and Bridgestone Potenza RA92. (These will all keep me in the price point of $400.00-500.00.)
Living in Ontario, Canada. I would prefer the "All-Season" over "High Performance" of these ones. I'm not the most versed on tires, so some of the model #'s may be off.... Looking for some enlightenment!!! Thanks all!

The Bridgestone Potenza RE 910 has great ratings at tirerack, but you will have to go with the 205/50/15 to get these tires. Check them out at http://www.tirerack.com

Just to update everyone.

I went with the Dunlop D60A2's
It has been 8-9 months, through a pretty enduring winter. I've now moved to an 85 km (one way!) commute.

There is probably 40 000 km's on the tires, and you wouldn't know it! I head into this winter confident that my tires will give me the handling necessary.

I got them at $124. / tire, from my dealership.

Not only do I feel safer driving on them.... Man! they are a Sexy looking tire!

We will probably look at some Dunlop's in the spring for my wife's PT Cruiser.
I'm that satisfied with them!

Peace!
