Question I need advice between Michelin, BF Goodrich and Bridgestone

I just brought home my 2003 Aspen White 5 speed WRX wagon last night. She is a dream come true! I am looking for tires.
I read all the reviews on the RE92's and most people say they hydroplane. Not good! I want to replace them ASAP. What I need is an all season sporty tire. I read all the reviews at tirerack.com and I came to the decision between three tires all stock size. I do not want summer only tires, so please do not recommend them to me.

My choices are between:
1) Michelin Pilot Sport A/S
2) Bridgestone Potenze RE950
3) BF Goodrich G-Force KDWS

Does anyone have these tires and could you tell me about them on your car? I am looking for a tire that will last at least 25,000 miles, is not too loud, has a comfortable ride quality, and has exceptional handling characteristics. From what I read, all these tires qualify. My main concerns are:
Are the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S's worth the $200 more? Will they last longer then the BF Goodrichs? If they will last 10,000 more, then I'd buy them tomorrow!
If anyone has these tires, please put your review here in detail.

Thank you,

Congrats! I have the Michelins on my 18" P1s and the combo is a huge improvement over the RE92s. They are a nice tire for sure.
