    Coldest it's been since installation of these pads has been in the lower 30s, they bit just fine.

    I picked up 205/50/15 Nitto Neogens on Amazon for a little over $70 each. I'll report back about how I like them. I have low expectations coming from 245 RE71R's on my last car.

    You might just be pleasantly surprised, but yes, they are NOT a 200 tread wear, 'lightly cut slick', DOT race tire.

    I hated the 17s with the stock size, with these I'm starting to like them once again. I was forced to buy these because I had a bubble on one of my tires. Ideally I would have gone to 16inch for more sidewall, but this is a good middle ground between stock size and my 15 inch winters.

    Yeah, I’m pretty much in the same boat. Not a fan of the stock size and I don’t whether to go your route or 15’s or 16’s. Thanks for the feedback.

    If I were keeping oem wheel and stock height, I would definitely go with a 205/45/17. I liked it with the Indy 500s before I finally got my 15" wheel. It was a definite improvement.

    ^^^Those tires have one of the sweetest side wall graphics EVER!
    (I wish that Kumho made some of their 200 range tread wear range, MAX performance donuts in 16"/17" sizes we could use. )

    That setup looks great, BTW!
