Exclamation What tires would you recommend?

I will be purchasing some VMR 703's and have a general idea of what tire specs I'll be choosing. What I'm asking for here are suggestions on low profile tire brands of good quality that will not cost me an arm and a leg.

I don't want crap tires nor do I want top of the line. Middle of the road tires that will last me a while. I'm not a racer and I actually drive pretty conservatively. Occasionally I'll drive for some fun.

Thanks in advance!
