tire brands

I was hoping to get some feedback as to the brand of tire and overall satisfaction of it from anyone who has high performance summer tires. Things i'm wondering about are road noise and traction.My integra summer tires were Toyo Fz4's and they were loud and my Dunlop FM901 's on my GTS now are even louder. Traction seems good on the Dunlops but far too loud for a long highway drive.

www.tirerack.com is a good site. They have user-posted reviews of tires and they also have pros who will test different tires out on the track and rate them.

I like my Kumhos. I have summers (ECSTA Supra 712) and winters (I'ZEN; something you definitely need in Edmonton). Traction is very good and I don't find them noisy.

Toyo, Pirelli, Bridgestone, and Falken are also good brands. It can really depend on what specific tire you get though.
