Best Tires?

Greetings folks. I'm now a proud owner of an E46. 2004 330xi. It's time for me to get some new tires and was wondering what others have had good success with. I want the same tires year round, all season and will encounter just a little bit of snow in the upcoming year. Don't have a ton of money to spend but want a great bang for the buck. An all around tire. Good wear. Quiet ride. Some performance characteristics. Any feedback is greatly appreciated and I appreciate your time.

The most comprehensive set of reviews can be found on Tirerack.com. If you decide to purchase tires from them, they'll ship them to your local installer.

I just bought a set of Sumitomo HTR III for the rear of my 330ci from Tirerack based largely on the great reviews from other sports car owners. They arrived at my installers place 3 days after I ordered them from the tirerack.com web site, the installer called me, the next morning they were installed, and I am a very happy man!

Sumitomo HTR III, for me, is the perfect tire. I have Michelin PS/2, also asymmetrical, on the front. I just cannot figure out how to get the rear tires to last as long the front! Maybe I'll purchase a Camry and they'll wear at the same rate? :-)
