If I were to get a square non winter setup on 8" width rims, I would go 245 instead of 225.
Please let us know if you think they are noisy on the highway. There are some reports that say the AS3+ makes more tire noise than the PS4 on the highway.Bought some Michelin Pilot Sport AS3+ 225/45R18 (Speed rating Y) at Costco today - they're running a sale ($70 off Michelin tires, $0.04 installation). Total was $725 after tax. Includes mount, balance, 45k mi warranty.
Bought OEM TPMS sensors (52933 J5000) off eBay.
Putting them on Enkei Dracos (509-880-6535AP).
Depends on what you want the car to feel like. 225 square makes it more fun and you can oversteer easier cause the rear will lose grip quicker.Why? Will the handling be that much better?
I don't have experience with Atlanta winters, but I stupidly drove a couple Chicago winters on summer tires (Michelin Pilot Sport, 2003 Hyundai Tiburon GT V6) when I was young and didn't know any better. I went off the road a couple times during snow storms, but (as I recall) it really wasn't a problem in below freezing dry conditions. The only issue I remember about cold dry days is reduced traction when accelerating from a stop, similar to warm wet roads.I live outside of Atlanta. We get snow maybe 1 day out of the year. Everyone immediately goes into an apocalyptic panic and the entire area shuts down so staying indoors on a day like that would be expected.
So if the only weather concern I have is temperatures below 40° F, would it still be necessary to get all seasons? Exactly what happens with summer times when the temperature dips below their range?
This is the first vehicle I have ever owned that had summer tires on them so I'm a complete newb about this.
Is it a square setup?Here you go:

Enkei DRACOs, 225/45/ZR18 Michelin Pilot sport a/s 3+. Costco said the wheels would do best with hubrings, which were another $6. Total cost just shy of $1400. Also, it would be $20 to swap back to the 19s when it warms up.
I've been driving on these since Thursday. Grip is massively better, especially in the mornings (30-40F). Honestly not sure if there's a noticeable improvement in sound or ride quality because hitting the I-94 on ramp at 85 mph leads to an adrenaline rush and my heart pounding in excitement. As for handling, I'm kinda a newbie on this front but I was able to easily take a tight, looping exit ramp at 50 mph still. Holy shit is the car still ridiculously fun.
sorry about the overcast lighting in the pic. I'll provide more pics in better lighting soon.
