1.) Pirelli P-Zero Nero M+S 225/45R17 $130 each wrapped on Rota G-Force's, 5000 miles
2.) Omaha, NE
3.) Commute, any twisty road I can find in the midwest
5.) Continental ExtremeContact 225/40R18's on MB Weapon's
6.) I would highly recommend the Pirelli's for anyone. I believe the 225 width would fit on the OEM wheels, and absolutely kick the RE92's ass. The handing in dry is comparable to just about any summer tire out there, and the all-weather aspect is the perfect AWD cost-effective compromise. I have gone through one winter in these tires and have no complaints. The wet traction is just as good as any rain tire I have had as well. They have a softer compound than most performance all-season's, so a rotation every now and then is a must, but I would assume that is what contributes to the dry traction. They are not directionals, but they do have a defined inner and outer mounting. Be sure you don't read "inner" on the tire after your tire shop mounts them (as was my experience).
