Default Which tire should I get?

I've narrowed my tire search down to two canidates:
Goodyear GTHR:
245/50/16, H rated for 159$.
Or I could step it up a bit.
Goodyear Eagle HP Ultra Plus:
245/50/ZR16 for 186$
Money isnt an option but it'* always nice to save a few bucks. These will be summer tires only. I liked my old Eagle HP'* so I'm leaning towards the Ultra Plus at the moment.
Whats your input?

I'm sticking with Goodyear. I like the shop I go to, they've never steered me wrong and have given me some deals in the past. Don't want to burn any bridges.
