What Tires do you recommend?

Just picked up a lease on a Q60RS RWD and want to replace the rear tires as i'll have to replace them anyways when i take it back in after the lease is up. Planning to slap on the originals before i return. What tires do you recommend for the rears and size? I live in Ca so the weather is warm and the car will never seen any rain in the winter. Looking for something sticky and non-Rf.

Without question, I'd go with Michelin Pilot Sport 4S. I'd put 4 on, not just the rears. Too much of an imbalance in performance if the front and rear are not matched. You Q60 will be transformed with these on it! Michelin's website allows you to put your vehicle model info in for the perfect size fit.

Doe anyone have any recommendation for all-season tires? I'm all for grip in the summer but swapping tires or wheels in the midwest twice a year is a real PIA.

I plan to get the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S3+ for my AWD when the run-flats are done. People on here seem to like them.

I have the Pilot AS 3+ on my RWD Q and absolutely love em.

To the OP, def go with the PS4’s...I would’ve gone with the these but wanted the versatility of the AS 3+ since I’m in the Northeast.

I'm with the MP4S guys. If I was in your situation, that would the only tire I would use (apart from the MPSS which is the older version of the MP4S).

The current best contenders imo are the Michelin A/S3+ and the Continental DWS06. Both are good tires (I personally switched to the A/S3+ and have had no complaints or issues) but they do focus on slightly different aspects from what I've been able to gather.

MP A/S3+ (Pros/Cons)
- better dry traction
- best in class (from what I've read) handling and steering response
- slightly firmer tire meaning slightly stiffer ride than the Continentals
- depending on wear profile might get a little louder over time
- slightly more expensive but there is a larger tire network (at least here in my area) for warranty support if needed

Continental (Pros/Cons)
- better wet and snow traction although the Michelin 3+ has been improved over the original 3 so they might be very close now
- a slightly softer and more pliable ride
- a quieter tire and ride
- slightly better warranty (going by miles driven only)
- cheaper overall to replace if needed

Since I'm in TN and have had a lot of experience with Michelin (MPSS) performance and reliability, I stuck with the Michelins. Additionally, the MPSS I had on my GTR were crazy awesome in the heavy rains we sometimes get here.
