Default Tire Replacement Recommendation 2015 Q50

Well it finally happened, the Dunlop tire bubbled and popped. I want to replace all 4 with seasonal regular tires. My tire size is P245/40/RF19.

Any recommendation is appreciated.

If you're going to replace all 4 consider going up to 255/40-R19. Better rim protection and a bigger contact patch. Lots of us have. I'll never go back.

Thank you for your suggestions. I've decided to go with the Continental Pro Contact DWS06 (All-season). Now I will need a spare and jack, also retro-fit my small trunk to make room for them. Should I just get a donut size spare?

I've put about 14,000 miles on my DWS06 tires and you will immediately notice the improvement in how your car rides and handles vs. the Dumbflops. There are excellent threads on the forum about installing a space-saver spare and the associated hardware in a Q with no spare. You should check those out if you're going the spare tire route. You won't regret getting rid of those awful Dumbflop RFTs.

Another option.
A much lighter, space saving and cheaper route than adding a spare where there was none:

I also have a plug kit carried over from my motorcycle which I would use for a tread puncture long before I'd resort to dumping in the green goo. (Slime.)

Also, another DWS06 convert here. (UP-sized to 255 from 245.)

'15 Q50S AWD. Bose, Nav. No Tech, No DAS.
Stock 19's spaced 20mm, 255/40 Conti DWS-06, Megan Racing strut brace.
ARK Grip cat back exhaust, minor cosmetic doo-dads.

Got my new Continental DSW06 today, WOW what a difference! After dropping $1,000 I sure hope they last and perform well.

Congrats sir, a fair number of the forums have the DWS06 installed and have had no issues with performance or having them last.
A side note if your on a lease you should store your old Runflats so that when you return the lease you have a new set of tires and don't need to replace them before turn in.
