    Nope. I take them off around November for the winter months. I did just put 2 new tires up front though. With super low-profile tires, it's hard to tell if you're low on air pressure and I ended up having a sidewall failure due to just that. No TPMS on this car for some reason.

    The good news is, the road-force runout on one front is now .001 and the other is .008. Amazing, considering the setup. The ride is as smooth as glass......

    Car started out with ContiSportContact3's all the way around. The problem is, my tire sizes of 255/30/20 and 305/25/20 have limited options, for a matching set. The Conti's were pretty pricey ($1500.00) and they're not available in my needed sizes anymore. So, tirerack had 3 options for matching sets. Bridgestone RE050, Michelin PS2s and the Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110s.

    I decided to try the Hankooks out for three reasons. They're getting great reviews, they're 1/2 the cost of the other two, and the other 2 are old-tech. I kept the ConitSport3s on the rear, since they're still 50% or so, then I'll switch those to the Hankooks too.

    The two Conti fronts have close to 80% tread remaining, so it's a shame that I can't use them anymore. Only 1 had a sidewall failure, so the other I'll put on ebay, I suppose.
