1st replacement tires for 2015 Mazda 3 i Touring 15" wheels

My daughter has about 30,000 on her Mazda 3 16" wheels. Looking to replace the Bridgestone Eccopia OEM tires. Looking at either the Pirelli Centurado P7, or the Michellin Defender, or back to the Bridgestone Eccopias. We live in Southern California, mostly dry weather, no snow. Any thoughts?

I am a big fan of Pirellis as you can see from my signature. My son has a 2012 Mazda 3 hatch with the Centurado P7s and he loves them. They are quiet, wear well, and handle well. The cost is very competitive, also.
