Main Criteria: Comfortable Tires
We bought our car a year ago, and it came with BF Goodrich T/A tires on 17's. One thing about these Summer tires is they are noisy. On a long drive, the drone became tiring.
I just replaced all four with a set of Continental DSW's all season tires. These ride much smoother, and are so much more quiet - definitely contributes to a more enjoyable driving experience.
I went with these tires based on the positive experience I had with my '06 VW GTI, where I replaced the noisy Dunlap Direzza's with the DSW's in 18 inch size/40 series profile. Again, the noise level decreased greatly and comfort improved.
