A. The car handles as well as it does due to the 18 inch high performance low profile tires. The problem is that the trade-offs are tire life and ride. If it were my car I would consider all season performance tires—examples include Michelin Pilot, Goodyear Eagle and Kumho tires. These are not run-flat tires, so you will need to consider a spare tire or an emergency tire kit such as the Slime Smart Spair (www.slime.com). Personally I would prefer a spare tire, even if it is a compact temporary spare tire.
