The new Pilot Super Sports are an excellent tire, probably grippier and yet less expensive than the older Pilot Sports, and they have a 30k mile mileage warranty.
The Conti Extreme Contact DW is also a great tire for the money. Very good grip in the dry, well above average in the wet and very good treadwear also, and even less expensive.
I've had both and would recommend both. The Conti isn't as sharp with steering response but gives a much better ride and is also about the lightest weight tire available. The Michelin is more of the ultimate choice for performance/treadlife/competetive price.
