Need to decide on some new treads

I'm looking for some new tires for the summer since mine have basically worn out and gone bald... I've narrowed down the selection but I still don't know which to choose:

Toyo Proxes T1-R
Yokohama ADVAN Neova
Bridgestone Potenza S03PP

Anyone ever used any of these or have opinions on what else they would choose?

I want to order in Canada, but I only know 2 sites that are canadian that I can use to kind of get an idea of costs. www.tiretrends.com and www.talontire.com... any other sites out there?

Moved to the correct section.

I have a pretty easy answer to your question. The T1-R is not that great (definitely not as capable as the other two), and the S-03 has been discontinued.

The Advan Neova is the fastest street tire in existence right now (judging from SCCA nationals). Awesome all around. Also take a look at the Falken RT-615, it is just slightly behind the Advan Neova and usually much cheaper.

Oh, and add www.1010tires.ca to the list.

Neova is about to be discontinued, so wait if you want their ridiculous price to drop, they've been in production for 5 years.

otherwise, if you want just to drive on, pick up something inexpensive then wait.
