So I have new tires and wheels for a car that I don't have yet! My build date is 10-8-2012 so maybe I'll get it my car by the end of October. That is not a problem and I will post when I get it so other members can see how long it takes from Build date to dealer getting the car.

I bit the bullet and had the all season version of the stock tire, Goodyear Eagle F1 asymmetric all season, put on for the winter. I'll switch back to the summer tire in the spring.

So far they are an excellent tire. Haven't driven them in snow yet but even if they only perform adequately I'll consider it a fair trade off. Snow days here in Indy are far less than cold and rainy days.
