Something you should be aware of:
Wear ratings do not necessarily compare between manufacturers. A 180 vs. a 360 wear rating is good to compare within a given brand, but you cannot necessarily compare a 380 wear of a Goodrich tire to a 350 wear of a Goodyear tire. On the other hand, a lot of the manufacturers have merged leaving only 4 or 5 big tire manufacturers. Look at the various web sites to see who has consolidated.
By the way, I'm currently running Pirelli Sport Veloces. Pretty good v rated tire, for a cheap price. I like them better than the Z rated Dunlops I had. Overall dry grip is not as good, but much better in the rain 9they have that center groove).
