You are right. Tires are one of those subjects that have a lot of opinions.
For a 1500 I like the Michelin Pilot GT. If not for those I think I would try the Avon Venoms.
I have heard very good things about the Avons on 1800's as well. It would probably be one of my top choices there as well.
E3's are very popular and good tire but I think they would rank about 4th on my choice list if I were running an 1800.
Ken can get most tires for you if you have him order them. I agree with you about just having him take care of it when you need them. It is a BUNCH easier and even if you order tires cheaper online, unless you plan to mount and balance them yourself, you are going to pay the difference in mounting fees anyway at most places.
