Abn Posted December 19, 2010 Report Share Posted December 19, 2010 After a snow storm last week, I barely made it home with my 09 after literally bouncing off a curb (no damage to tire or rim) on a slight hill. I immediately started looking for an all season tire. I think I am going to go with the ultra HP AS Continental Extreme Contact DWS. They are rated as best in class by tirerack for snow and have great reviews. I need to go down to 275/40/18 for the rear. Front is stock size 255/45/18. Although the rear tire is 3/10 inch (26.7" v. 27") of an inch less in diameter than OE, I don't think it is major, plus I keep a little traction for the rear when the roads are dry by being just 10 mm narrower than stock. The Michilen Pilot AS rear is actually 4/10 inch less in diameter than the OE rear and GT500 owners had no problems. Any thoughts on these or other AS tires? Thanks.
