Default trying to find the right tire for me

ive currently on some yokohama AVS sports, but they are wearing out since i was driving on a lot of gravelly roads (its been about 20k miles since i got them.)

what i want is a good performance tire that is QUIET
i also want one that has a lip on the edge to protect the rims from getting curbed (i have volk racing te37 so scratching them is out of the question)

anyone have any suggestions?

i hear michelins are pretty damn nice. price isnt as much of a problem if they last longer.

I'm assuming you want another high performance tire (ie summer only).

Firestone Firehawk SZ50 EP

Not sure about the rim protector, i think the falkens have it but not sure about the firestones. I think the firestones are on special at the tirerack, and the falkens are alway cheap. Check www.edgeracing.com for the falkens. There are several other threads on both, so do a search and check 'em out.

Also, i think the pirelli pzero neros scored pretty well on noise by the rack, but they weren't specifically designed to lower noise like the other two above. So i guess it depends on how important noise is.
