Quiet summer tire

Hello All

summer tire time, my old unmatch tire that came with the car need to be change.
I have a Boxster S 2000 on 17'' wheel. I daily drive and only do spirit driving. I dont need max grip race will last only 2 laps tire. I'm looking for confort and quiet tire with good overall performance.

What are your recommandations with my specification?
(someone offer Hankook Ventus V12 Evo K110, dont know these tire at all)

thanks
Chris

I like my Continental ExtremeContact DW tires. Great combination of price, performance, ride, and wear. Have them on my Cayman S and did my 1st DE last weekend. The instructor was impressed with them (along with my CS). Neither he or I got them to churp and he drove my car at 10/10ths during one session.

My INDY installed a set for me last week. I let him choose. Great choise !!!!! He is not a dealer for tires. He just knows a lot more than me and the trust was there. I am happy. Ride is sweet !!!
