If I were you, and living that far south I would get a "summer only" tire. Better performance, better grip, decreased braking distance, better wet handling. Just find one with a 30-40,000 mi warranty.
So 245/40R18 would be better? Would you mind posting pics of your car so maybe I can get an idea of how that looks? Lol
And I'll have to look into summer only tires since the weather here is pretty much summer-like year round.
