Tire comparison

Need new 225/40/18 all round was wondering if I could get some inputs on tire choice for any people with experience.

I originally had some Continental Extremecontact DW on order but i'd have to wait till mid July to get them.

My criteria are good wet and dry grip, and good treadlife.

I narrowed it down to 3 in a very similar price range so if you have any experience with them please lemme know!

Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110
Kumho Ecsta LE Sport
Sumitomo HTR Z III

Or if you have a set of 4 225/40/18 in something better slightly used lemme know.

Have you looked at Barum Bravuris 2? They are made by Continental tires. I see them advertised for only $605 all in.

V12 Evo. It's only downside is a slightly soft sidewall, which is part of why it rides so well.

Thats what I went for. And I really do notice the difference in ride. It is a small price to pay in everyday driving.
