Right now i have the 17" Dunlop Sp 9000 on my car nad its time to get a new set! I drive alot on highway and need a tire that will last for a while. The SP 9000 are nice but a lil much just for highway use.

Any suggestions on waht to look for?

Yeah if you look at tirerack's website... don't get anything in the max/ultra-high performance range.

If you want to give up some performance and get the longest tread life there are probably some good 40K plus tires in your size.

Brand & model in a 215/45/17?

Thanks to those who have replied!

Only two choices.
Yokohama Avid H4S or Michelin Primacy MXV4.
All others in this size have less than 500 treadwear rating.
I have the Yokos on my AllTrac and they handle surprisingly well.
