I'm actually running wider than stock. 255/35-19 & 285/30-19
I live in NYC and cannot store different sets for summer/winter so I was looking for something that can get me year round. The OEM ultra high performance summer tires are dangerous when the temp falls to freezing - even in dry so I wanted something that can grip in the cold as well as light snow.
These tires are fantastic in that regard. Considering how wide and flat my rear tires are, I should be screaming about how awful these grip but I'm not. In fact, I'm wondering what the other reveiwers, who are complaining about snow traction, are talking about. For what they are, these tires have a surprising amount of grip in snow up to 6 inches and sub-zero temps. Tracking was fine and braking in snow are great for all season tires. From a standing start, the traction control would kick in but that is understandable and expected. I had to drive home in a snow storm last year - 8-10 inches The car did struggle from a standing start and keeping traction into the turns. If you are a reasonably capable driver, this chould be enough traction to get somewhere safely to park it for the night.
My only complaint is the road noise. They are a little louder than I prefer and much louder than the Michelin PSS that came stock but its a small price to pay for year round confidence.
