Smile help with tires

im looking for a daily driven summer tire for agressive drivng. maybe autox every once in a while. i dont want to pay a arm and leg so i found a few choices and i wanted to know if anyone has them here. i think im going to go with 225/45/17 for my 06 wrx, this seems to be what most people go with.

first, the kuhmo MX

seems like a great tire for the money, it would be $456 shipped to my door.
next is the falken FK-452


comes to $412 shipped, seems like a good buy also, but some people say they could get loud after the first 10k miles? anyone hear of this?
last is the nitto NT NeoGen ZR


i only had the first two tires in mind, untill i cam across these. this would come to an impressive $376 to my door. the reviews seem to be the best out of all the choices. but, almost all of the reviews are from people with fwd cars. there is one person with a wrx that reviewed, but was positive.
so what does everyone think about my choices? keep in mind, i want to keep at this roundabout price range. im not sure which one i should go for so opinions are welcome.

The Sumitomo HTR ZIII are highly rated in Tire Rack's test. I've been considering them at 95$ a piece or so. I hear good things about the Potenza RE050 PP's, but those are out of your price range, I think.
