    Hello everyone,

    S85 RWD owner in Detroit. Been happy with my winter tires (Pirelli Sottozero), but the factory-installed Michelin Primacy tires are worn.

    For next spring, would you recommend I purchase all-season tires or summer tires? Mostly city & local highway driving; priorities are safety, comfort, noise, range. This is my daily driver (and I love it!)

    megawhizz, If you priorities don't include traction and maneuverability, and you want low noise, and... you are not willing to throw tire wear into the wind, I wouldn't purchase summer tires. Go with all season. Also, check with your local tire shop regarding the characteristics you desire. They can get you into a set of tires that fit your needs.

    I'm happy with all season tires on my MX100D. I'm gonna get a set of winter tires soon and I wonder if you have any recommendations to where to store them in Detroit area.
