Thoughts on replacement tires

I am coming up on 45k on my Goodyear Eagle GT 235/50-R18's and I love the way they handle. Too bad they are now discontinued. I have been looking at other brands and reading on the forums to get the best bang for the buck and have basically narrowed it down to three. I would appreciate any thoughts on these choices:

Hankook Ventus S1 Noble2 H452

Yokohama YK580

Nitto Motivo

I am leaning toward the Nitto's right now. One of my main concerns is mileage and wet handling.

Get the Michelin Pilot Super Sport, it won LeMans and is predominant in F1 I believe. I had them and loved them...

I second the Michelin super sports. I had them on my last set of wheels. They were great in the rain. Great in the sun. The only thing they don't really like is the cold, but any summer tire will have that problem.
If you MUST go with an all season (on this car you should really have summer tires, and then winter tires if you need them), get michelin AS3
