Hi stacy! welcome to tire world... Well, i would suggest staying away from the General tire, not just because it is the cheapest, but if you study the older entrys in this newsgroup, you will see that they typically have poor life (low miles b-4 they wear out) and not very good handling. I think the Pirelli or Yokahama would be a better choice. Where did you get the pricing? Usually most tire stores have a "Price Guarantee" which means they will beat the other guys price. I suggest you check out www.tires.com and www.tirerack.com they will be competitive in the pricing. (mail order tires).
If you need an ad to bring to the tire store, get a recent copy of Road&Track, or Car&Driver. I just bought a set of Pirelli P6000Sport Veloce tires thru Sears, and paid $75 per tire. This is the smae price as the places i mentioned above. Sears wanted $96 each. so, well good luck!
