I have run Firestone, Cooper Goodyear(oe) and now Pirelli. Of these tires the Goodyear had the best handling(dry), Pirelli the best wet traction,Goodyear second best. Firestone the most road noise, (Goodyear the loudest they had no tread left) Coopers just poor all around. Hate to say it overall the Goodyears are my choice. You have to stay on top of rotations and shocks, or you will have noisy tires.
