The problem with the OE tires is there 10k mile tires and for Summer. Which is fine if you live in an area where the climate doesn't drop below 40. Once you get down under 40 you will see significant tread wear. I dunno about the rest of you guys but I don't really feel like spending $1500-$2000 on tires every 6 to 8 months.I'd probably just stick with the OE sizes, but that's just me!
I don't disagree with you Lou but in the area I live we have a problem with this stuff called snow. From time to time and since this is my primary car I don't have the option for a non AS tire.Ok, we buy a car like this for it's performance and handling - Right
I know that's why I did It's an awesome car Why in the world would you want to dumb it down with an All-Weather Tire
If you wanted a car that had long tire wear, you should not have looked at the F, or any other high performance vehicle for that matter.
The F, and all other speciality high performance cars, and tested with a particular brand and model of tire during design and testing. These tires are fitted to the final production models. In the Fs case, Michelin PS2s and Bridgestone RE050s. In other words, the car and the tire are a system made to work with each to get the most out of the handling of the vehicle it was designed for.
However, there is a choice is you wanted to do this, again beyond me. But, you would need to go with 18" wheels. There are some that will fit the F. The only all-weather tire I could find is:
Good Luck to you in your endeavor.
Oh, as a PS. - As far as cost is concerned. We paid a lot of money up front for this car, now we need to feed it with the proper amount of cash necessary to maintain it to it's fullest potential, or modify it to make it even better
