C5 Replacement Tires

Goodyear Eagles need to be replaced and Discount Tire suggested the Michelin Pilot A/S run flats for my C5. Anybody tried them?
The Goodyear Eagles are really noisy.

I replaced the Eagles on my 2005 C6 two months ago with Michelin PS2 ZP tires and I couldn't be happier. They are much, much quieter than the original tires. They are described as ultra high performance and have no tread warranty. They cost $2000! The quote I got for the Pilot Sport A/S with 45k mile warranty was $1500. This is at Costco and includes all the costs including our almost 10% sales tax here in California. I didn't really need the ZP tires as my driving is pretty tame now. My Goodyears on front were worn out after 15K miles. Must be all the turning involved with daily city driving with potholes and the like. Looking back, I should have gone with the A/S tires.

I bought the Michelin ZPs about 2 years ago and have 10,000 miles on them. I got them at Alban Tire in Northern VA for $1400 and change, installed, balanced, and filled with nitrogen. Couldn't be happier - quiet and are wearing evenly or not wearing at all - can't tell. I do mostly road trips and country driving.
My Good Years lasted 40K miles and got through inspection, but they wouldn't last the year. I couldn't stand the noise.
I would get the ZPs, but shop around - I got them installed for less than what Tire Rack charges for the tire.

Thanks to both of you for the comments. I am a little confused. Are the ZP's more expensive than the Pilot A/S? Costco here wants $500 for the two A/S's for the front and Discount Tires wants $560 with their extended warranty

Here is some research from the Tire Rack - It is a good reference point for price. I have also included customer feedback results:
Kumho XRP $880 (Run Flats) N/A rating Michelin PS2 ZP $1286 (Run Flats) 8.8 rating avg 220 AA A (Wear Traction Temp) Firestone SZ50 EP RFT $1434 (Run Flats) 8.1 Rating Goodyear GS EMT $1288 (Run Flats) 6.6 rating Michelin AS Plus ZP $744 (Run Flats) 8.3 rating 500 AA A (Wear Traction Temperature) - has double the tread wear life of the ZPs
From Michelin: PS2: Wear Life     8 Fuel Efficiency 10 Handling     10 Braking     10 Comfort     7
AS: Wear Life 10 Fuel Efficiency     9 Handling     9 Braking     9 Comfort 10
THere it is. You are paying a lot of money for performance on the ZP. ZA has softer ride and longer wear.
If the AS was available when I bought my tires, I might go for them.
