Hi all, I'm about to replace the factory 175/70-13 Michelin XGTs that came standard on my Nissan Sentra. I've been pretty happy with these (66K+ miles) tires, and would consider another set, but find them a bit too costly. Now I'm considering a somewhat more performance-oriented tire in a slightly larger size (185). I almost never see snow, but I would like a competent rain tire with decent wear characteristics (lots of road to cover here in Texas!). A stiff-ish sidewall is important as I would like to tighten up the handling, but probably won't bother with a plus-1 conversion.

I've looked at Pirelli P400, Yokahama AVID H4s, Firestone 570s, Bridgestone BT10s (?), and assorted others. Any other suggestions or experiences? Thanks.
