Tire decision help

I recently picked up a set of G35 Coupe wheels & I need tires for them. I was going to buy a set of tires from Tire Rack but came to the conclusion that's it's best to buy from a local shop (America's Tires) due to how horrible the roads are in SoCal.

I plan on running 235/45-17 on the wheels & need help with the choice of tires:

Hankook Ventus V2 Concept 2 H457 for $89 each
Kumho Ecsta ASX for $100 each or
BF Goodrich G-Force Sport Comp 2's for $105 each

I'm leaning more towards the BF's or Kumho's but not entirely sure. Any input on any of the tires will help!

I just bought Comp 2 here in Canada for 19" G35 ray rims.

This was due to consumer report testing that said it was best for performance...

Yeah I live in SoCal so I would be cool with a summer tire all year round but hear that the compound is softer so that might not be friendly with the potholes out here.

Will you REALLY notice it though? That is the question...

Most of these tire reviews test them at the "edge"

Nankang NS-20 or Nankang AS-1.

I've got the AS-1 in 235/45/18.

They're pretty friggin fantastic and exceedingly inexpensive.

I'm a huge Kumho fan as well ... can't go wrong with those IMO.

I've seen those tires on Discount tire Direct on eBay. Plenty of good reviews & orders on them too. I might have to buy a set. The local tire prices are just way too high (Americas Tire)

Just a little bump for anyone who cares. I went with the Milestar MS932 Sport tires for my G35 coupe wheels. 7.5" up front & 8" in the back, wrapped in 235 45 17. My mechanic even complimented the tires saying that they were a great deal & that they'll last me a long time!
