Post Tire opinion wanted - Dunlop / Yokohama

Hello, know that neither of these two are very sexy but which is the better performance tire (not worried about snow or longevity) Dunlop A60 (H rating) or Yokohama Avid H4 (V rating). Have had the Dunlops a couple times, happy with them (prefer them over Bridgestone RE92, Michelin MXV, Toyo Proxies) but can get the V rated AVID for about 15 CAD more each (thats about 10 cents to you Americans).

Thanks for your reply to this rather mundane question.

I've never had any luck with Dunlop tires, so personally I'd go with the Yok's.

Last two sets of dunlops I had didn't last worth a squat. 50k mile tires that laster 25k and 18k. (no autoxing, in fact, the 13k a year I put on it is all 75mph on the highway to work and back.

I've owned both tires, and I found the Dunlop to be less squirmy. But the Dunlops don't last very long, perhaps half as much as the Yoko. (Talk about tradeoffs.)
