Those are the exact options we are considering. Leaning towards the Michelins because the Conti's apparently have enough rolling resistance to affect the mileage by a shade more than 1mpg. Meanwhile I like the Conti's looks. Always a trade-off, I suppose.

I look at the extensive legalese on tire tire warranties and give a golf clap to the lawyers. I wonder if there any takers ever on those. Ever.
