So, I went with some Yokohama AVS dB S2's. I love the tread pattern on them, and they got pretty high ratings on tirerack.com. It's not every day that you see a tire with good dry, wet, AND snow grip. Anyway, haven't put them to the real test yet, but they definitely live up to their name (dB, decibel). They keep road noise to a minimum, which is a plus for me. We'll see how they wear and perform.
