Um...your'e gonna wear-em out in quick order anyway... Buy one set, wear them out...in a coupla months, buy the other set. See what YOU like best on YOUR car..!
Others will probably like something else on THEIR car.

Michelin Pilot Super Sports and the newer Michelin PS4S are the two best street tires I've encountered...the endless glowing reviews don't lie.

Spend the money, its worth it

I have the P S 4S 215/45/17 and you
couldn’t do better without going to an
extreme performance tire.
Plus, they’re pretty quiet and comfortable
and light for such a high perfoming tire,
and they’re great in the wet as well.
