I really like the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 A/S.
The downside is that the are expensive and have only lasted about 30k miles on my Vibes, but they have been worth it for me.
I've been looking at these. Do you know why they last so short for you? They have a 45k mile warranty.
Probably because I drive very "spiritedly".
The fronts last about 30k miles while the rears will last up to 60k miles. I normally rotate them but I did have a non-rotated set wear out the fronts in 30k miles.
I drive 30+k miles a year and if I keep the tires rotated, I usually have to replace two a year with the new tires going to the front.
I am not fond of FWD cars proclivity to hydroplane so I tend to replace the fronts when they start getting slippery in heavy rain.
On a plus note, the PS4 A/S wears very evenly, stays quiet, performs well, and resists hydroplaning throughout its life.
If you drive normally, you should be able to get close to 45k usable miles if you rotate the tires regularly.
They really are an excellent all season tire, especially if you like a performance oriented tire. I like them so much that I am on my fifth set (4 PS3+ , 1 PS4).
