You especially don't need all season tires or anything but summer tires in El Paso.
Thanks man; will keep them then. After that, I don't know. I was talking about just the next step below 'summer max performance', which is 'ultra high-performance all-season'. More than enough for a car that won't be tracked. Following your Armani suit analogy, it'd be like wearing it to eat at McDonalds . I need something quieter man; the roar from these tires on the crappy highways here is deafening. And wouldn't mind longer tread life either. The good thing is that even when I go to the mountains, I make sure it hasn't snowed.

It's the same thing as motorcycle tires. No need to use a sport tire when a sport-touring one has all the grip you need, plus they last a lot longer. Take care, and thanks again for your recommendation.
