My Q3 tires needs replacement tires (18"). It came factory fitted with Pirelli Scorpion Verde (https://www.pirelli.com/tires/en-us/car-light-truck/find-your-tires/product-sheet/scorpion-verde-all-season) and I liked the ride with them(Comfortable ride). My complaints,

1) breaking when its wet (though it hardly rains here in SF Bay area).
2) They become very loud after 15K miles or so.

I thought that they will last a little longer, they are completely worn at 35K but based on what I read; it can be worse.

I am looking for these features,

Comfort ride,
Better corner handling,
Wet Traction
Low rolling resistance(I guess this conflicts with traction, right?)

What category am I looking at, Touring, Performance or something in between which does not exist?

Thanks

I also like the Conti's use TireRack for comparisons. If you plan on going from SF to Tahoe look at the Conti DSW they do pretty well in the snow and wet, I had a set on a previous AWD car.

Thanks for the input, Guys. I was researching based on feedback (personal but mostly online) and ended up buying Pirelli CINTURATO P7 ALL SEASON PLUS.

https://www.pirelli.com/tires/en-us/car-light-truck/find-your-tires/product-sheet/cinturato-p7-all-season-plus

It seems to have stellar review at tire rack, got good deal from "Americas Tire" on these. (640 for tire and 799 OOTD, with installltion, misc env. fee and hazard warranty)
