I've been doing a lot of online research about new tires. After 60k miles my original Michelin MXM4 were finally done and I just replaced them with the Pirelli. They got good reviews in Tire Rack, have a great rating for longevity and besides a low rolling resistance they are very quiet. I'm really pleased how much more quiet the car is with these Pirelli. I really enjoy my car being quiet both inside and what you hear on the outside. Since I just got them and they need a few miles to be properly broken in, I can't say anything about grip/performance.
