Might give them a look.
After the OE tires (which didn't last real long) I went with 2 sets of Avon's which worked very well, and then I tried a set of Metzlers (which were so bad in the rain I changed them early) and then a few sets EACH of Michelin PR2's and 3's. Even though I have always liked Avon's the PR3's are the best I found for the GT IMO.
