Look into the Yokohama ADVAN S.4, the tire has gotten nothing but great reviews and I just bought a set from Jake at Tirerack for 180 a piece.

Do not get TOYO. It feels like those tires are made of metal they are so hard.

My personal choice is either the Potenzas from Michellin, or the Proxes from Toyo.

I would say get the Toyos, I have had alot of them in the past, IN fact I have them on my Legend now, got them new, and I had them on my Last Legend I just got rid of and yes its the SE like yours.. I also have them on my Jetta now and I could go on but will stop... Three votes for the Toyo.. I have had no problems with them and they wear nice.
