How do you guys like Sumitomo HTR Z III Tires?

These tires seem to get great reviews. I am thinking about ordering a set for my 2002 E46 M3. Have you guys had any experience with these tires?

I recommended them to two friends. Both had PS2's before. They both say the tires are great for street use and almost as sticky. They are getting more miles out of them than PS2's (they last longer). The sidewall is a little stiffer than PS2.

I had HTR's on my E36 M3 and found that they lasted and gripped really well, BUT as they wore they became VERY loud and ruined the car. I wouldn't buy again because of this.

The tires I am using now have the same problem with getting very loud when they get 50% wear. They are the Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3. What tires do you recommend that are not too expensive (around $600 for 4)?
