    For your car and with the dimension 225 45R 17 91Y you have some really interessting tyres! Since I don't really know what you are looking for considering performance, here is a list of tyres that according to different tests perform well:

    Dunlop Sport Maxx RT
    Continental ContiSportContact 5
    Bridgestone Potenza S001
    Michelin Pilot Sport 3

    It's also four tyres that we tested on track and that we distinguished by their performance!

    Ive had Good Year Eagle F1s, Bridgestone Potenza RE050s, Conti Sport 3s as well and they were all great.

    This time round I went for Firestone SZ90s and I am very impressed with them, got all 4 fitted for just over £300 (225/45/17).
