This may not be applicable to the high-dollar summer tires, but I am extremely impressed by my $91 Yokohama S.drives.
Please ignore the horrible stock rim paint job that Discount Tire destroyed + the sloppy mess they left on:
Granted, I just made the switch on stock rims and came off my Hankook Winter Pikes, but still.
S.drives were ranked pretty high on the lower end price range on Tirerack, so I went with 'em.
That said, the only thing I would probably switch from the S.drives to is the RE-11s, like Sinister. That's only if I can get some 17x8 wheels sometime this year.
S.drives look hot to me, but they're the first set of real summer performance tires I've ever had.
