BTW From what I have seen, most of your better summer tires are going to be "Z" or better.

Well after searching around and looking at local places I decided to go buy my tires at Discount Tire. I bought 2 Michelins Pilot Sport A/S. I just wanna try some good tires for a chance. With replacement plan i came to $450 for both tires. It was more than I planned to spend on them. They are 45k tires.
I kinda like the way discount tires work. They didn't pressure me to get any other tire and I initially declined the replacement plan. They didn't pressure me or ask me any questions for the replacement plan. All their tire prices include balancing, new valves, rotation and pro rated road hazard for the life of the tire. I payed $22 dollars extra per tire for the replacement plan after they explained me how it works. If I have a flat or something wrong with the tire they replace the tire with a new one free of charge including the instalation. You can also bring your car and they will add the tires to the replacement plan even if you didn't bought them at discount tire (kinda of nice).
I'll give these tires a try and see if I will keep them in the future or change to BF Goodrich.

Attaboy! You picked my tire! Woo hoo, I feel like I 'won' the contest
I paid a bit less for a set of 4, about $750, that was with the mounting fees and roadhandler insurance and all that, so about $175 per tire. But I think I got them on sale that day...
They're good tires, you'll like em. And yeah, the 45k mile rating is nice, most Z tires are unrated and only last about 30k...

Yeah sounds like they are good. They got a $70 dollar rebate but if I buy 4. The other ones have enough tread left. The guy told me he trade them in but he will only give me $15 per tire... no thanks. This not a video game lol.
I also read that michelins offer 24/7 tire change assistance or towing to 150 miles for 3 yrs for free. That's kinda of nice too.
