summer tire

Well, winter is about to start and I'm looking foward to spring. I just put on my winter rims/tires yesterday and I'm gonna start saving up for a set of summer tires for next year. I have a few in mind. Which would you guys get and do you have any experience with them? I want a good tire that will last about 40k miles and perform well in wet and dry weather (wet handling a must). So far I'm looking at:

215/55/16

Continental ContiExtremeContact


Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3


Bridgestone Potenza S-03 Pole Position


or Nokian NRVi


Please take the poll. If "other", then reply with a tire suggestion. Thanks.

Definetly not that Continential ContiExtreme Contact, that's an all season tire...if you're going to have two set of rims, a dedicated winter set, and a dedicated summer set, definetly forget about all seasons, and get 3 season performance tires on them. Of those tires u listed there, i'd say that the bridgestone is the best. However there are plenty of good summer tires avalible that are far cheaper, such as the Yoko ES100.

I just got a set of Goodyears from tirerack today. They currently have a $75 rebate offer till 12/9/03. They cost $120/tire after rebate.

According to the tests and reviews I read these tires perform the best in wet compares to all other max perf. tires.

They'll probably only last 20-25k miles, though.
