Default I finally bought new tires.

I bought new tires off Tirerack.com and I had them installed Monday. Contiental Extreme Contact DSW 255/50R19 I really like these tires, the ride quality is great and they do a great job filling up the wheelwells! I drove 40 miles on the highway the other day and maintained 32 MPG! I will take a picture and post for you to see, I think this will help out you guys without the performance pack on your 2010+ SHO..

I just went back to work this week and I am driving 300 miles a day to the jobsite, these tires ride very nice cruising at 80 & are very quiet.

you do realize you put bigger tires on and thats going to mess up your speedometer and the correct odometer reading and MPG. With the new tires when the speedo says 60 MPH your actually driving 62.2mph The new tires are.5 inches taller

I had these on my MB C300 and they are incredible. Once the Michelin's wear out on my 2012 SEL I'll put a set of these on.

Handling is awesome, cuts through water, snow up to 6" (personal experience) and enhanced handling.
