      Do You have a separate set of winter tires and rims? What are you looking for in a tire? Grip? Quietness on the highway? Maybe more information could help us give you recommendations.

      I need all seasons and I am considering Pirelli P Zero AS Plus which Pirelli is subsidizing right now. Going to talk to my tire guy this weekend.

      As long as you don't have any snow to contend with, this is a great option.

      Hey Chris, I know you will drive in the snow, so 235/45/18 Pirelli P7 Cinturato All Season Plus (must be the "Plus" spec though). Best all around tire I ever owned: they stick in all road conditions (corner very good in dry); plus are quiet, comfortable and with low rolling resistance for better MPG. Remember we met in those heavy snow conditions? I tore up there on snow covered roads at or above regular speed limits..no sweat.

      The PZero's are excellent also, stick better in the dry, but less capable in the snow.

      Pirelli Cinturato P7+ all seasons have been getting rave reviews for their combination of comfort, good handling, and superb quietness on the highway. They are one of the very top rated tires for sporty yet luxurious-feeling, all-around driving tires for people who care about such things. Truly a jack of all trades tire with an emphasis on comfort and silence, on a car that is already extremely sensitive to tire design for ride comfort and road noise characteristics. I would have gotten them if they had been available in 235/40/18. Unfortunately they don't come in my size and I'm currently too low on KWs to fit their 235/45/18. If you are at stock ride height I'm willing to bet these are your best choice for serene, fast, sure-footed motoring both you and your wife will appreciate. Tire Rack gives them some of the highest ride and noise comfort ratings I have ever seen, and they are excellent in most other areas as well. A few of our members have purchased them and can confirm what I've read about them after doing a ton of tire research. I ended up with Pilot Sport AS3+ which I like better than the Conti DWS06 I had before that, but I wish they were a little more compliant and about 30% quieter. I hate that I hear every bit of tire thrum and accoustic resonance that comes up through my floorboards.

      Ha, literally got in there 2 minutes before me with the same recommendation. You managed to press Post Quick Replay more quickly though. Well played, sir.

      +1. I replaced the stock Continentals with these about 30,000 miles ago and they still have good tread and are still quiet and smooth. The OEM tires were already shot at 30,000 miles. I highly recommend the P7 Cinturato All Season Plus.

      The cheaper one is H rated, so slightly lower performance, lower top speed rated. The H has a softer sidewall so may be a little more comfortable. Honestly, I have the V rated, and they are comfortable as hell already. For your hot rod, get the V-rated.

      I think I heard that the "plus" versions are also notably quieter than the non-plus ones. The quietness is a major selling point for me. Only downside I can see with looking at these tires on the Volvo lot is they are not very sporty looking, at least in the 235/45/18 size. I forget if the ones I saw on the lot were P7s or P7+s but I do remember thinking the 235/45/18s had a very chunky look to them and seemed styled to read as plush passenger car tires, with chunky sidewalls (not just in terms of sidewall height, but lots of bulge and manufacturer's markings, graphics, etc.) as compared with the ones on their 19" wheel packages which looked much more lean and mean. I compared measurements on Tire Rack and the 19s had a leaner, cleaner design, with a narrower measured section width for less plumpness relative to the rated tread width. So if aesthetics are a concern, you might actually consider getting them in 225/45/18 instead of 235/45/18. They should have a cleaner look without losing much, if any, contact patch, and should slot-in between the factory 235/40/18 Contis and the 235/45/18 Pirellis, size-wise.

      225's? Sorry, go big or go home. I've got 245/40-19's, and can not consider skinnier with the big bulbous fenders on this car. Lower profile and/or more "stretch" (cleaner) means dented and scraped rims...and loose fillings with this crashy suspension (crap OEM RD struts). And like I said, they look too small.

      I got the Pirelli P Zero AS Plus today...245/40/19 and immediately you notice a difference over the P7's that came with the car. Probably should have had these to begin with. Sharper turn in, less noise and pretty smooth. Will update after more miles...
