I live near Seattle, and use all-seasons only. just put these on 2 days ago: Conti ExtremeContact DWS 245/40-18.
The OEM tires on my 08 coupe were Bridgestone RE050, showing wear at 23k miles. Felt risky continuing on them as the winter approaches.
I chose the DWS based on several online reviews, as well as the lower price vs performance ratio. Initial impressions: much quieter now, grip is fantastic (but all new tires sould be...). I read comments about soft sidewalls, but have not experienced that for myself yet. 36 PSI all round.
My all-time fav tire is still the Michelin Pilot Sports A/S Plus. Still using them on the wife's E500 wagon, and were on my Crossfire. They are quiet as well, and the E500 has almost 20k miles in them already. I love the tread-design.
Just my limited $0.02 :-)
