According to CR, The Turanza LS-H and the Falken Ziex ZE-512 are both the two highest rated tires in terms of performance as well as noise charactaristics.

The Bridgstones carry the trophy in overall handling in an avoidance maneuver (sharp swerve left, then right) while the Falkens edge out the Turanzas in wet braking (panic stop from 40mph on wet surface with ABS on), hydroplaning (how fast the tester could go before skimming over the water), rolling resistance (measured on a dynamometer), and ride comfort (subjective). In all other areas (Dry and Ice Braking, snow traction and noise), they are equal,

In either case, niether of the tires scored poorly in any category, so I don't think you can go wrong.
