If you want smoothness you'll want to buy Michelins at a place that does RoadForce balancing on a Hunter 9700 balancer.
Also get the alignment set right on the specifications front and rear--do not accept "close" or "within tolerances" as good enough.
#8 of 9 Tire observations for the record

Hi there. I just acquired a beautiful 1999 PA with 70,000 miles and running Michelin Agility Touring tires, they have about 30,000 miles on the set. I just drove from California to Florida (3160 miles) with my brother. The car was flawless, the tires were as expected (Michelin owner on other cars) and the average mpg was above anticipated mileage.
My humble experience is that with some solid research, good tires are a must. Road force balancing is a must, proper inflation is a must and the ride will pretty much take care of itself, assuming the remaining drive components are within specs.
Thanks for listening.

I have them on the front of my 99, they're affordable and I like the feel of them, in fact, I'm going to get them put on the rear later today.
