Default Tires for Camry 2000?

What is a good set of tires for camry 2000 LE?

I am considering between these 3 tires which have all good reviews on
tirerack.com:

Yokohama Avid Touring
Yokohama Avid H4S
Goodyear Regatta 2

I have the Goodyear Regatta 2 on another car and it is really
comfortable. I am looking for comfort, quietness and control. Do not
get any snow in Louisiana but rain and heat is something that is very
common.

Thanks

I have Yokohama Avid Touriing on my 2000. The same wheels and tires
off of my '97 I traded in. They were awesome on my 97. However they
are a bit noiosy on the 2000. Still an excellent ride and handling.
But for some reason, (maybe another mechanical issue such as
allignment ) they are loud. Couldn;t ask for a better handling/riding
tire though. this is solely my experience and should be taken as such.

I would suggest the Michelin Harmony or Hydroedge as they are both great
tires. I just put a set of Michelin Energy MXV4 plus tires on my 2002 camry
V6 and they are really smooth and quiet and handle well on the interstates
at 100 mph.

I do not doubt Michelin tires but they are over priced.
Goodyear is reasonable and YokoHama are cheap.
Thinking about the Yokohama Avid but some ppl mentioned that it is a
bit quite noisy (as mentioned in another post). Anybody can refute
them?

The new Goodyear assurance that is out has great review. From
handling, smoothness and quietness. Wonder if it is worth the extra
40$/tire over the Regatta 2 and $60 over the Avid.

Keep in mind ,these tires were quiet and excellent on the first car.
When I purchased the later model car, the tires were about 8 months
old, and the dealer had just put some really really cheap tires on the
car I wanted to purchase. So in the deal, we traded our tires to the
newer vehicle and they have become noisy with the new vehicle. this
could be for a variety of reasons, but I believe they are excellent
tires and pretty darned quiet also. I had a set on the car previous to
the '97 Camry also, on an old Clebrity and they were great also. Very
quiet.

FWIW Aivd is "advanced vehicle integrated design", means they're
designed for cars like the Camry.
Seem quiet enough to me.
Long wearing.
Handle well.
And, as you say, very reasonably priced.
When I was reading the reviews people were comparing them favorably to
Michelins.
They have a special tapered extra section of rubber in the sidewall to
improve handling and soften the ride.
There may be some newer designs out by now. But the tread pattern is
definitely designed to be quiet, long wearing and handle the rain
well.
(closely spaced tread blocks - computer designed to vary size and
avoid creating resonant hum, deep rain channels, and continuous center
tread, plus full depth siping) Now that I have the Yokohama Avid
Touring, I notice many newer tires imitating the tread pattern with
very minor variation, on a variety of vehicles.
The primary objection I've heard here, is that they're S rated rather
than H.
I've had mine up to 110 mph and they performed smoothly and
flawlessly.
Generally they're driven like a Camry, easy going, but continue to
surprise me with their cornering ability.

I replaced my original tires on my 2001 Camry with Goodrich Traction TA's.
They're fine and pretty good in the rain. Try this for pricing. Get a
price from Costco, Wallmart, or other discount store. Then go to Sears
with that price and they'll get that tire for you for 5% more off.
