Summer tires?

Looking for a good set of tires (OEM SH Rims)

thinking i'd like some summer tires (since my Lude is a summer vehicle only), however it'd be good to get the performance of a summer tire and the longevity and tread life of an all-season... at the same time I don't want to pay 6-700$

Found the Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sport with a UTGQ of 340, its a summer tire and thier $100/each. Seems to have the highest UTGQ and best reviews of most of the affordable summer tires on Tirerack.com

let me know what you guys think

Thanks

Re: Summer tires?

RE760s are OK. I've also had pretty good luck with Sumitomo, which tend to be very reasonably priced -- I've run HTR200s on my 4th gen for many years now.

Re: Summer tires?

I just recently put Potenza's on my Lude. They are great tires but it cost me close to $700. Also with approximately 50k tread life
