Default Good replacement tires for stock 04 WRX wheels

Hey everyone. My very first set of Potenza tires are almost completely bald and was looking for opinions on replacement tires for the stock 04 WRX wheels (same size/diameter, etc...). I live in Orlando, FL, so I don't necessarily need all-season tires but am looking for comfort (and a quiet tire) more than performance. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

since you don't see snow but do see rain I would go with them.

I use them as my street tires on my ITR w/o any complaints.

If you are looking for quiet, maybe the Yokohama AVS dB S2 - it actually does pretty well performance-wise, and the current version isn't plagued with the increasing noise as they wear down.

Pirelli P-Zero Nero - quieter than the RE92, but way stickier.

I also like the MX's, but they might not fit your comfort/noise requirements. Though it's not too bad, they do make a bit of noise. They also tramline quite a bit as they wear down.

Thanks everyone for your responses. I think I'll try the BFGoodrich g-Force Sports this time. Will let you know how that turns out.
