FWIW, I'm running the stock Conti Pro-Contacts. Quiet ride and handling, is pretty good, braking (esp. winter) and ride are a bit sub-par. Good tires but not great tires. When I replace these, I'll probably go with the Michelin Primacy but determine what your own priorities are and if you drive much in the snow. Tire Rack is a great resource.
