Handling is much more mushier but traction is awsome. I went with the 15" Michelin X-Ice xi2 to replace the 18" Michelin Pilot Sport 3's for the winter. Very quiet and smooth winter tire on the highway.
So there's no driving in the snow with the OEM handling package tires.
Thx for the info.
We are waiting for our FF w/the 18" package and I am in the process of researching snow options.
1 is to obtain the 17" black OEM wheels available and get winter tires for them that bring the radius to the same of the 18" just to keep all the #'s in line.
Is this a viable option or does anyone recommend another direction?
