Yoko's or Conti's

Anybody have Yoko AVS ES100's or Conti-extreme contact's? I can't decide between the two. I am looking for a performance 3 season tire and in NH it usually means some snow. Therefore, if I get the Yoko's I'll have to run on snow tires for like 5 months! Do the Conti's perform well, or are the tire-rack reviews written by old farts?

Does the Yokohama AVS ES100 a quiet tire? Coz' i have the Yokohama Parada, man, they were too noisy! You can actually hear like a grinding sound when you start rolling.

Always consider the noise level of the tire before you buy one. The Parada's has a very good grip on the dry road, but on wet surface they kinda hydroplaning plus the annoying noise.

So before buying tires check every category of the tire: Dry Traction, Wet Traction, Snow Traction, Handling, Ride Comfort, Noise Comfort and Treadwear.

I check the review on the tires, it seems pretty good!
