ASA AR1 18x8 ... who's running some 235/40/18 tires? give me imput.

I'm about to bite on some ASA AR1's 18x8, but I need some tires on them.
Want in a tire is ....
-all season
-lasts 20K miles or so
-not much road noise
-235/40/18

I looked at the Continental Contiextremecontacts, but side wall doesn't look nice.
The Yokohamas ES 100 ES looks real nice but lasts around 10K of the reviews I've read on tirerack.com

Aight. Thanks

Cross the Yokos off your list if you want something quite...they are notoriously LOUD on the road.

Take a look at the following:
Toyo Proxes 4 (i had these on my 18s, great tire)
Pirelli PZero Nero M+S (these were my second choice when i was shopping for the 18s, another great tire, the Toyos were just cheaper)
Cooper Zeon 2xs (these are on my 19s now, and i dont have any complaints)

that sucks I'll have to watch out when I ever go to Cleveland...
I found some dude selling his ASA AR1's
- less than 10k miles on them
- was on his audi '04 A3
he wants $690 shipped.
What do you guys think I should give him I was thinking $500 shipped. Or I could actually pick them up. He's 4 hours away in the Brooklyn. THanks guys. I'm almost there...

edit: guy just told me one of them is "bent but not hard" and wrapped in potenzas s03 tires...

BTW how much is it to fix a not too bent wheel?
