Thank you for all the responses.

The car currently has factory 19" wheels and as such came with the strut tower brace.

At this moment she's wearing 245/45 R19 Pirelli all season tires.

Will probably go with the Michelin Pilots or Continentals, but based on what I have learned here, the Pilots make more sense.

Assuming I run 25,000 on the next set of tires perhaps I should change the shocks/struts then, but if I do it now I will get to enjoy the improved ride/handling/fun for the next 25,000 miles...... see how easily we justify these things.

So, y'all think for a DD, I'd be wasting my time and $$ on the Monroes - no improvement over stock and should "Pony Up" (no pun intended) and go with the Konis, Bilsteins or something similar?
