Last year after being unhappy with a set of Nittos due to poor wet traction, I purchased a set of Michelin Pilot Sport AS/3. They are excellent. They hold really well even when it's cold out. Tire and wheel sizes are below. Tires came from Tire Rack. Wheels from LMR.


Best regards,
Scott

I have the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S (not the version 2) on mine, drove in heavy snow last winter and can't be happier.
I was going uphill on 4 inches snow where some truck struggled lol

Comes with 45K miles warranty.

If I was doing All season tires the AS/3's are the ones I'd get. But, I dont' do all season tires, summer performance only. Winter driving is what the Wife's car is for

If you have stock wheels, just keep the same size tire you already have. Also, there is no point in getting a rediculously expensive tire like a michelin pilot ss or a/s3's for a stock size tire. If you dont plan on getting new wider wheels then just get a set of decent all season tires in the stock size.

Your not going to get AWESOME performance from stock wheel/ tire size.
