I just purchased my second set of Bridgestone T32s. There's a $50 rebate on them till the end of May. Bridgestone Rewards
My favorite tire used to be the Continental Road Attack 3 or 4. That's still a great tire. But it isn't any better for the extra $100 per set for cost. The Bridgestone T32s have had great grip in both dry and wet conditions. Ride is the smoothest I've felt, yet also confidence inspiring in the corners. Longevity seems to be about 10K...maybe just a bit less than some of the other tires I've used.
