All of thoe things usually don't go hand-in-hand. You can have one or the other, but not all of them in one tire.It's like having a car that will go 300 miles per hour and gets 100 miles per gallon. It's not realistic.

Make a choice between smooth ride and better handling and list your modifications, if any. This should give you a stack of answers. Also your current tire size.

I must agree with Greg (Grouch) I replaced my Goodyears with the Continental Conti Extreme Contacts and I couldn't be happier. Handling, traction, comfort, and road noise have all improved. I was especially surprised that the tires were so quiet, given their agressive tread. My primary motivation for choosing these tires was their excellent traction on wet or snowy roads and their resistance to hydroplaning. I'm just getting ready to buy a second set for my wife's Cruiser.

I too agree with Nova and Grouch. Those Conti Extreme Contacts are great tires. Got em from Tire Rack. Check out the website. The Contis have high ratings all across the boards, don't cost an arm and a wheel, and can be used in the snow! Haven't tried the latter yet... Ordered W or Y speed rated, I dont remember, but they sent me Z rated. Oh well, guess I'll try that old idea of mine to race jets this December. You won't be disappointed with these tires.
