I'm running Michelin Pilot Sport AS 3+ on my 9-5 Combi right now.
I like how they handle, but I miss the way the Continental Extreme Contact DWS 06 tires rode. I'll go back to the Continentals next time I need tires. They handle nearly as well, and they are quieter and less harsh.
I tend to justify putting more tire on the car than most owners. We live in very hilly and curvy territory. In the winter and spring, we get heavy rain, and snow... but I have a dedicated set of snow tires/wheels (Currently Michelin Arctic Alpin X-Ice, previously Continental Extreme Winter Contact - both very good tires.)
There are a lot of really nice tire options out there. If all I did was drive on the highway or urban surface streets, I probably wouldn't give it as much thought as I do.
