'06 Sonata tire replacement

Well, my original Michelins were not dead yet, but they turned a bit greasy in the rain, and were even squealing a bit in the dry weather. So I bit
the bullet and bought what Tire Rack rates as the #1 tire for "High Performance All Season". Yes, it's another Michelin, but the ratings say it all as compared to the OEM's.
I purchased 4 Michelin Pilot Exalto A/S tires. Mounted and balanced for just under $600. It's probably the most I even paid for street tires, but I purchased a few sets of racing tires back when I ran SCCA that were much more expensive.
Anyway, only about 200-300 miles on them so far. The first thing I noticed was that they are MUCH more quiet than the OEM's. I mean MUCH more. They also absorb some roads imperfections better. The wet handling is a little better, but with mist falling since I got the tires, I can't say anything about hydroplaning or dry handling yet.
Looks like I'll be able to try them in the snow and ice tomorrow, so I'll report back if anyone is interested.
