V12 Ventus seems to be the one people are buying to not "break the bank"

Along with the Hankook V12 ventus, I would suggest taking a look at Dunlop DZ101 and Continental Extreme Contact DW.

This is assuming you want a performance summer tire that won't break the bank. These tires should handle spring/summer/fall conditions without problems and give you some decent dry traction.

Dunlop Star Specs ZII Not going to break the bank and handle well in the wet. Tirerack does decent reviews on the tires they sell. Check them out.

Not sure on price in that size but Nitto Invo's are amazing street tires for a DD, however there are tires that will do a lot better in the dry (they are not too bad though). Wet traction it is crazy good!
