Advice on Best All Seasons?

Hi all, with the winter months coming up, I've been looking into getting a good set of all seasons for the FiST. I'm still running on the stockers after a year and survived last winter, but the extra 10 months of tire wear has me a bit skeptical about things this winter. The options I'm looking at are the Michelin Pilot Sport AS/3's and the Kumho Ecsta 4X II's.

I had the first gen Ecsta 4X on my old Focus SVT, and they handled great and got me through a snowpocalypse in Toledo a couple years back, and the new gen seems to be more more refined in every aspect. But the Pilot Sports seem to be the bar right now.

I'd be on these tires for pretty much everything from daily driving to potential autocross events if I join next year, so performance is definitely a must (I can't afford a new set of wheels...) So if I can get some advice on which tire to go with, or even some other recommendations would be great!

Also, this is my first post... I'm brand new to the forums so my bad if I'm posting in the wrong place or in the wrong way! I probably should've replied to an older thread but I wasn't sure..

Thanks for the info! I've heard a lot about the DWS06, and the one thing that sticks out is the aspect ratio on the tire.. with OE being 40 and the DWS being 45, would it really make a huge difference??

Haha looks like I'll be going for the Michelin's! Since I don't have the money or space for new wheels I might as well go for the best for best all seasons I can get.
If I had 16" I'd go for the DWS, but for now I think new wheels aren't in the cards for me..

I'm kinda the same way, I wouldn't mind trading a few thousand miles if the tire has really good traction on it.
Heck it would take me like 4 years to put 40,000 on them... so bearing that in mind, what tire do you guys think is best in terms of traction to run on the stock wheels, do the Michelin's still win out?
