Are they 235/45/17s or 225/50/17s? If they are the 235, then try the Hankook Ventus K104 at around $190 each, or the Kumho Ecsta 712s for around the same price. They are a good, cheap, performance tyre.

haha, last place i went to had no idea the hankook Ventus even existed even though another store of the same chain in sydney put the tyres on.
i've got 1 Hankook ventus K102 and 1 Hankook ventus K104 on the rear of my car apparently the K102 is no longer available (doubt it considering its advertised in one of the latest Motor/Wheels magazines) but anyway they've been pretty good on my car.

I would avoid Falkens. I had a set and found them to have the "interesting" ablility to allow understeer and oversteer at the same time in the wet. Very scary.
Put on Pirelli's and the whole attitude of the car changed significantly for the better.
