Really depends on what you're looking for out of your tires.

The AVS dB will give you a very quiet ride, good wet and dry traction, but bad snow traction. Treadwear is decent for a Z-rated tire.

The Michelin and Dunlop are pretty equal with the Dunlop having a slight edge. They are both better in the snow, but a little noisier than the Yoko.

My quick 2 cents, I have posted along this line before:

At the beginning of this year, I replaced the OEM XGT V4's on my Tiburon with a set of Dunlop A6 D2's..... and am not looking back!!

The downside a little noisier... the upside: Everything else! --> Handling, traction, control, even my fuel economy has increased!
I don't remember the last time I hydroplaned... oh yes... before the Dunlops.

I have always sat on the fence with Michelins, they make some fantastic tires, but for my car, usage, and personal experience... I will probably look to Dunlops again for quite some time.

In fact, I'm on the board this morning, as I am heading out to the dealer's today, to price a set of Dunlop winter tires!

Any suggestions anyone??
