Top 3 All Season Tires $100-$200/ea - Post-research Sharing

Here's my top three all season tires I've found after doing some research on all season tires for the budget-minded folk. Keep in mind that this is what I've found after reading many reviews and articles and some may not agree with me at all. I may even be a little biased due to good experiences with a certain brand. If you have any experience with these tires and want to say something about them, positive or negative, please feel free to!

All prices reflect tire size 245/40/18 (08 STI stock BBS)

My first pick:
Continental ExtremeContact DWS
Plenty of great reviews saying that this holds up very well in all weather conditions. Exceptional snow performance considering it's an All Season. For the deeper pockets.
$183/ea on TireRack
$186/ea and Free Shipping on Amazon (CA include tax)
No Mail-in Rebate/Promotions

Hankook Ventus S1 noble2
Great reviews regarding it's performance, noise level and comfort. Handles very well on dry and wet surfaces, but not much info on snow performance. In my opinion these are the best bang-for-the-buck, all season tires.
$158/ea on TireRack
$147.97/ea on Sears.com with additional $50 off total price
$80 Mail-in Rebate till Nov 30, 2013

Kumho Ecsta PA31
For the very budget-minded folks, there's the new Kumho All Season. Not much to say as it's brand new as of Sept 2013.
$125/ea on TireRack
Check Sears!
$50 Visa Rewards Card Rebate till Dec 31, 2013

I think I'm going to go with my second pick, the Hankook Ventus S1 Noble2, because I'm on a budget this year for tires and would like to get two sets next year, one summer set and one winter set. The Noble2s run about $630 for the set and you get the $80 mail-in rebate. I don't think any other tire is going to beat the performance at that price. Next step is to call up Sears tomorrow and see how much they want for them installed. I'll update this post after I do!

UpdateI called Sears up today and got a great price on the tires. They're $148/tire and I also received $50 off the order total, plus the additional $80 mail-in-rebate. Came out to be about $115/tire after promotions and rebates. Link to tires on Sears.com.
