im running 225/55/17 falken 512 v-rated on my 3.5se . in my life i have owned 3 sets of falkens for my cars and there great . they grip very well in the dry/rain and i drive the hell out of my car (my car see's 100 and redline just about everyday , i go through brakes about every 8-10k miles) discounttiredirect.com 245/45/18 , $134-147 shipped . there is one draw-back in the tires which is tread life . i get around 18-20k miles out of them , but i beat the crap out of them . when you push the tire's as you go beyond there grip limit they progressively lose grip . some tires if you go over there limit they lose most of there grip and you get punished , not these tires , you can push these tires hard , slide the car a little and maintain very good and predictable control . i hope that helped . good luck with the tires.
