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.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.
...........and as previously mentioned, a tire size of 255/40-19.There are numerous threads covering this topic but the big picks for a solid performance tire are as follows.
FirestoneFirehawk Indy 500 (Summer)
FALKEN Azenis FK510 (Summer)
Continental Pro Contact DWS06 (All-season)
Michelin Pilot Sport AS/3+(All-season)
Congrats sir, a fair number of the forums have the DWS06 installed and have had no issues with performance or having them last.Got my new Continental DSW06 today, WOW what a difference! After dropping $1,000 I sure hope they last and perform well.
The only spares that fit are specific size "donut" types. I followed the instructions in this thread: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?
Just picked up a set of AS/3+ for under $800 CND, anything over $1000 is pushing it IMO but so far I've really enjoyed them on my G37. My roommate has the DWS 06 and he really enjoys them but he drives a GTI, honestly can't go wrong with either the AS/3+ bit more sportyLooking at replacing the tires on a 2019 RS a few days after I pick it up from the dealer. I had the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ quoted at $1211 out the door including free balancing, rotations, tire repair and road hazard for the life of the tires. I realize that I'll probably be replacing these every 2 years or 30K miles anyway based on wear as they say these cars wear tires excessively. I called Tire Rack, and several dealers in town, and they all said the Michelin's are "the" best tire for this car. The Continental CT DWS 06's are nice too and I can save a few bucks but I have always been a Michelin guy. Any thoughts or suggestions are welcome.
+1 Sir.Tires are definitely a personal preference based on several factors. I drive quite a bit more per year than average 30 to 40k per year and I am very picky about a smooth quiet ride. Handling is secondary for me based on the highway miles I drive. I have to vote for the Conti DWS 06. I ALWAYS go with Michelin. Because I buy my cars used, I have tried most of the popular UHP and Grand touring tires including the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3, Michelin Primacy, Yokohama advan S/P, Bridgestone potenza, Hankook Ventus, Dunlops, and the general g max. The non michelins were already on the cars I bought and I got rid of the Bridgestone and the Dunlops the quickest.
Michelins were the best for my Lexus sedans GS350 and IS350, but the Contis are outstanding in all categories for the Q.
We went down this route. Got the spare, jack, the foam spacers under the carpet that raised the trunk floor, etc. By the way, the trunk carpet will no longer fit around the perimeter properly and looks bad. The problem is that there isn't anything to hold the spare down and it just thunked over every bump. It just floors me that they don't have the "bung" at the bottom of the trunk with a thread so that a spare could be secured. I guess in the old days, it was there whether equipped with a spare or not. We returned the spare tire, jack, and finally rationalized the expense of the spare tire kit for an auto club membership, or the cost of a tow and a night in a hotel.Thank you for your suggestions.
