Default Tire choices help

I'm deciding between several tire choices and any feedback would be great!

Currently, my bridgestone potenza SO1s are really nice but one of them blew out and so I need to replace them. It's about time too. I dont race but I do take corners fast sometimes.

Rains quite a bit but hardly any snow unless I drive to the mountains which I dont do often anyway.

Here are the choices:

1. Pirelli Pzero Nero M+S All-season
2. Michelin Pilot Sport A/S All-season
3. Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 Summer tires
4. Bridgestone Potenza SO3 Summer tires

I also tried the Continental Extreme Contact All-season tires but they squeal like a pig on corner and totally suck.

Thanks!

PS2 is the hands down winner both wet and dry
- unless resistance to hydroplaning is your most important issue,
then it would be the Goodyear GS-D3 and S03 in that order
- GS-D3 absolute best wet tire, but has soft sidewall which some do not like, has great dry grip but not as good as PS2

other players: Toyo T1S, Falken GRB FK451, Dunlop SP9000, Pirelli Pzero Nero summer - all excellent - and the Falken's are cheap - but the PS2 still wins the overall title. The PS2 is also quiet and does not tramline like some max performance tires

All season Pirelli and Michelin A/S are perhaps the best of their breed, but they're no match for the other tires mentioned wet or dy. If you don't need them for the occasional snow, you don't need them period

Tire Rack and Falken's European website have extensive tests on these tires if you're interested
