Default Time for new tires. What to get?

It's almost time to replace the All-season Conti DWS tires on my Speed6. I will not be buying any Conti tires ever again. The tires themselves have been good (Minus less than 30k on them & they are down to 3/32nds I believe. No more Conti because of how the company treated me when I had to have 1 of them replaced due to a sidewall bubble.

Anyway, what all-season tires should I be looking at? I do like to do spiriited driving & we do turn here in PA.
Anyone have experience with any of these 3? I'm leaning toward the BFGs after looking at a lot of reviews on several tires.

I ran the below linked "High Performance All Season" tires on a Miata and a Saturn Ion Redline. Great all around tires. They served me well got good mileage out of them, gripped well on back roads, and did well in autocross (once a month usually). The cost is an added benefit.

Nitto Neo Gen's have been good to me. They have been through a good bit of abuse (back roads, autox and drag) and still work well in all weather conditions. They are also relatively cheap.

I hate my Sport Comp 2's, they're loud AF and don't grip as well as expected.
Just my .02

I just went through this process looking for an all season UHP and bought DWS06 Contis. Love them.

I would look at Falken with your lower budget this time around. Azenis or Ziex line.

BFGs are great tires. They tend to be a tad loud and wear out a little sooner than some others, but great traction for most all conditions. Granted I've never used them in snow. Contis, especially the updated DWSs, are hard to be for all seasons for PA weather. Pilots are very pricey but also another great tire.

For all weather with snow:
1. Contis(yes I know you said never, but here for ranking purposes since you had a set and can gauge how others would stack up)
2. Nittos
3. Pilots
4. Gforce

All weather no snow:
1. Gforce
2. Contis
3. Pilot
4. Nittos - for no snow I'd choose a different nitto.

THe BFGs are that bad in snow? Well, I'd rather put snow tires on my Miata anyway since it already has the rocker rust. I could spare the MS6 from it.

Well I've never used them in snow, so not necessarily bad, I just don't have any experience with them in snow whereas the others I do.
