I am finding the Goodyear Eagle LS tires that come with the 17 inch wheel option to be pretty lame. They seem unsually noisy to me and don't seem to have phenomenal grip either. I am not happy to get rid of basically new tires (1400 miles), but they really are disapointing so I am considering switching to different tires (keeping the 17 inch wheels). Do people have suggestions? I know the Dunlop Sport SP9000's are popular -- they come in 225/45/17 configuration. Wouldn't the lower profile cause a disturbing gap in the side view of the car? Would I sacrifice anything in terms of ride comfort? (I live in the NY/NJ area where the roads are just plain awful) Can the Dunlops handle small amounts of snow or are they pure summer tires? Any other suggestions?
