Since you compared them to Michelins it would be interesting to see how they feel and sound after the first 30-40K miles. New Michelins are great but as the softer outer compound wears and you enter the second stage of tire life between 30-40k they are hella noisy.
You have great taste in rims. I love that rim.
The Yokos were better in that regard. Even when worn, they were pretty smooth.
As for my taste in rims, I tend to pay close attention to how well a wheel goes with the lines of the car.
