Default What are the best tires for my A4?

I bought an '02 A4 Quattro 3.0 with no modifications about 8 months ago and it's time for me to buy new tires. Which would you guys suggest? I don't want the cheap ones, I've gotta buy the 17" high performance tires, so I'm not worried about the cost too much. I've heard the Goodyear Eagle F-1's are good, is that true? I looked around in these forums to the answer to this, but couldn't find it. Your advice is much appreciated!

The first owner had put Dunlops on it. They were pretty much worn out, so we recently replaced them with BFGoodrich in the same size (225-50-15). So far, so good.

I have the F1 GS-D3 - excellent tire which I highly recommend. They are great in all conditions, including in the rain. I've heard from others that the Supercars have better dry traction, but that they are real filling rattlers.
