If you want bang for the buck, you may want to consider Firestone SZ50
These tires are made on the same line at the same plant as the SO2s
in Japan, albeit with a somewhat different tread pattern a little
more biased towards rain. What this means is that you retain the
chemical composition of the compound of the SO2s.
They are extremely smooth and quiet for hi po tires. You'll trade
off a tad in dry grip for bags of wet grip, and its about
50% cheaper than the Bridgestones.
And they come with moulded rim protector bands in certain sizes.
