    +1....been running 245/35R20 Eagle Sport A/S on OEM wheels for rougher roads and colder weather. Didn’t expect them to perform the same as a great sticky Summer tire. I am 3k miles in with no issues at all, they grip well in cold, rain & ice.

    @OP - thanks for sharing, definitely like reading about experiences of others with the car.

    I may be one of the few that got a replacement tire simply for performance reasons. I got ps4s in 255/30/20. They are a little bit thicker than the stock 245/30/20. I do benefit from a little more cushion though.

    Do you find they are able to put the power down in 2nd gear better than the stock tires?

    I think it does a little. I haven't been driving it hard as much as of late since the temperatures have been pretty low. If i drive it in the 40s I don't goof in it too much. I think it grips a little better overall. the tires are a tiny bit wider but quite a bit thicker.

    That tire size difference has nothing to do with acceleration. It’s beyond illogical.
