I was looking more towards the ride quality than handling so I went with the 225/45. I have them on the car already and never had complaints about them. Went with the General G-MAX set. Thank you for the input everyone!

I just put 50K on my Generals. The front pair look like they have another 10K to go, but the rears were just replaced with Nitto Motivo's. Keep in mind I don't balance the tires that often and the reason why the rear two are replaced is from a bad alignment. These were for my 17's. Although wear rate is pretty awesome, they were so-so in wet weather. Dry weather is great and predictable. I haven't got to test them in snow cause it hasn't snowed much here in NY.

I had Continentals and weren't that impressed. Kumho's wore out pretty fast.

Had them on for a few days and I really like them. Little bit of vibration at 50+ but very quiet and steady below that. Hopefully they won't wear out before I decide to get something else after graduation.
