I live in SoCal and run them year round. So far I have run the stock Michelin PilotSport, Kuhmo MX, and Falken RT615s.
What I'm looking for:
The SportPilots are the longest lasting but the most expensive. The MXs were OK but noisey and cheap and went 14-15k miles. The RT615s are probably the best, but only last 10,000 miles. I'm hoping to find tires that'll last as long as the PilotSports but are cheaper. Based on my preferences, are there any tires that qualify? If not, what tire should I look at? I'm tired of shelling out $$ every 10-15k miles for tires. Thanks for the suggestions.
