Ok, so i ditched the oem turanza on the 3.6R. Horrible wet traction. I upgraded to the Conti DWS which i ran on the ol GT. Traction is fantastic with these, but I'm missing the ride comfort of the turanza. I'm thinking of meeting in the middle with the Michelin Primacy MXM4's....stepping down from UHP to a quality Grand touring tire.

Besides being expensive the only issue I'm facing is which to get. Theirs a 94W and 98V XL 225/50/17 tire. I'm a little hesitant on the W because of its the same as the DWS and the possibility of extra firm sidewalls. But yet the compound and tread pattern is different than the DWS. I'd be fine with V except for the XL load rating...that probably means extra ply sidewalls which could make them as firm or firmer than the W....dunno. Any one got any ideas?
