Advise/opinions on TS tyres

I know that there are probably loads of threads on tyres but I have a specific question.

Tyre size is 205/50/16

My TS has Michelin Pilot Exalto 2s on the rear and some unheard of chinese abominations on the front. I am changing the front tyres but am in a quandary. The Michelins I've seen are about 135 each fitted but I know from my 155 days that many of the guys on there swore by Uniroyal rainsports which are way cheaper at about 90 fitted.

Is the difference worth it to have Michelin's. I drive reasonably briskly without being a nutter and I enjoy fast cross country driving, so I will put the expensive ones on if they are actually better tyres. Does it make any difference to have the same make all round?

Opinions please?

Go for Michelin, by far the best in this wet country

I have GoodYear Eagle F1s on mine and am happy with this tyre, good grip (even in the wet)
