Default tires, yoko s-drive vs. nitto motivo

2005 RSX-S. Time for new tires, last set was Yokohoma S-drives, which lasted me 3 years. Wow! How do they compare to Nitto Motivo? They are in the same price range but the nitto are all season, and we don't have all seasons in south Mississippi, it is summer for about 9 months out of the year. I don't do autocross or drag, just drive but like to punch it every once in a while. Any input on which are better for my situation would be greatly appreciated. thanks

Don't buy all-seasons. You said it yourself, you have no need them. No way are they going to be better than your Yokohamas and Nitto are not that great to begin with. Just get some S-drives again or look into continental extremecontact DW.
