Just a good all-weather tire should be fine. Michelin, Goodyear, Goodrich, etc.

Pirelli PZero and P6s aren't bad as well as Bridgestone Potenzas for an all-season or at least 3 season tire since you have the winters. The car's got a fair amount of torque low down, the v6 is what ~200ft-lbs? Def take it easy off the line.

I have had good success with toyo proxes 4's all season and T1R summer. You get what you pay for with tires.

I run Hankook K106 on my stock 16" wheels. They grip very well on dry but are also very good in the wet.

Stay away from kumho ecsta's, i am running yokohama s drives.....they are the replacement for the AVS ES100's. No complaints so far. Check out tirerack.com and read the reviews. They are quite helpful!

i assume you are running on 17" rims using the 225/45 fitting.. if so, dont mess around with any other tyre than the goodyear F1s... these are the grippiest tyres available for normal road use (guy from Dunlop told me that)and they do pretty damn well in the wet too... i have a hirshed 9-5 and despite trying very hard i find it almost impossible to get the thing to step out on welsh country roads (which unlike the roads in the us, have corners!!). if you cant get the goodyears then the dunlop sp9000s also do well... for these cars pirellis are crap and i wouldnt recommend them atall

i only ever run on continental sport contact 2 and have moved to 3's now with my highly tuned 9-5

I'm running the Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3s on my Aero. They run pretty smooth and quiet, and I'm surprised at how well the tread is lasting, too!
