Default 2nd gen IS350 replacement tires recommendations

Any suggestions on tires for a 2006 IS350 with 93k miles? Original were replaced with Cooper Zeon. It seems both original and Zeon start getting road noise after 20k. Thanks!

Yeah, the cheap tires are no good.

I recently got Yokohama Advan Sport all seasons. They did not break the bank and are fairly quiet. Give those a consideration.

For "cheap" good tires I got a set of Sumitomo HTRZ-IIIs from Tire rack. Good all around tire

I had Nitto Motivo for about 4 years and just recently switched to Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

Cooper RS3A are good all season but if you need 255/40R18, no luck.
Next; Continental Extreme Contact DWS06

Having kids makes you change your mind on how much you spend.

I'm a fan of the Goodyear Eagle F1's.

That's what I've been using.

When I was looking, everyone said to get the Hankook Ventus V12 Evo2 but if I had to do it a second time I would go this route:
1. Do not get stock tire size in front, need more rubber as ride quality is **** with stock size.
2. Buy a tire with much better sidewall. Achilles ATR Sport is a great tire I had on my last Audi A4 Ultrasport, if I had to do it again I would buy these for the Is350

I had Cooper Zeon this last time and road noise was bad after only 10k, tread life was not very long either.

Probably go with Michelin Pilot Super Sport As/3+ this time. Tire stores are pushing Hankook but reviews say they do not grip as well.
