Hey guys! I'm looking for recommendations for A/S tires for my 2017 Sport Touring. It is my daily driver, but I don't commute much. I'm almost at 25K miles and im only getting rid of the tires the car came with when I first bought it. Any suggestions? I didn't have a problem with the stock tires, I just wanna see if there are any other ones that you guys recommend. I've heard Michelins are the go to. I've also found these Yokohama tires. Any one know how these tires do?

This is what I got: 235/40ZR-18 KUMHO ECSTA LX PLATINUM XL

I got two of these due to bubbles from a pothole in one of my tires, and I'm pretty happy. handling has improved a bit, and I still have the stock conti's on the back with 30k miles on them. And yes, it is time to swap those as well now lol.

What got me was someone in East Rochester (I live in Rochester, horrid winters and INSANE amount of potholes) put 80k miles on them and loved them in the crappy weather. I know you don't have as much bad weather out there -definitely no snow, and I'm not sure how the tread compound would wear depending on the temperature difference, but I love these tires right. And the price was...

Yeah I think Kumho really balances price/performance/longevity really well!

Continental ExtremeContact DWS06 is my fav. Will not last as long as a non-performance all-season due to soft grippy compound, but the traction in all conditions is amazing.

I recently put on a set of Si wheels and had Falken ZIEX AS 960s with the same OEM specs (235/40/18) and have been very happy with these. Decent road characteristics and road noise isn't really any worse than stock. Dry grip is decent and wet grip was very good, too. I wish the sidewalls were a bit stiffer but overall ride is great. I had a set of the Goodyear Eagle Sport AS before and I like the Falkens more in every respect beside handling where the Goodyears seemed a little better but not by a huge margin.
