Yeah I was going to say....it bugs me seeing those in the pictures lolJared is spot on. I will do P Zeros as the car originally came with them.
But Collin, I am with you, I am a huge fan of Michelins and if I were to drive this car thats the route that I would go.
No need to buy super expensive tires only to be flat spotted and etc. Thats the main reason why the BF Goodriches are still on the car even though they bug the heck out of me
I honestly don't know what I would buy right now if I was in the market for a set of UHP summer rubber. The PZ4 PZero isn't available in 17, nor have I been able to find any of the super sticky Vredestein stuff available here in 17. Importing Powerproof might not be cost-effective at the moment. I won't touch Continental tires; too many bad experiences. So that pretty much leaves PS4S and the old PZero as the last options standing. The lower price and 220 treadwear of the PZero gives it some appeal since realistically we're going to kill these tires on age not miles, but I think the PS4S is probably the better tire. Other problem with the PZero is it's not available in 215/45, which is the size to get. 205/45 is special order only at Tire Rack now. I guess I'd go 225/45 if it were me and I was buying PZero, because they can actually be had and you won't bend a wheel the first time you go over a pothole. Having now driven 30k+ miles without issue on Titans over some pretty terrible roads, I believe Volvo's tire size choice was a bigger problem than the wheels.
For actually driving on, I love my zLine AS. Sticky enough for public roads, $400/set, quiet, rides nice, and I'll probably get 30k miles out of them....if I actually manage to drive that much before they've been in service for 5 years.
