Default Original Tires Replaced with 285/30/20s

Well, after 6.5 years I thought it was time to replace my original tires. I went with the Michelin Pilot Sport 2 in size 285/30/20. This size was a factory option for 2006 cars. They look great and handle much better. No problem with clearance all around. There's also still plenty of ground clearance even with the long tubes.

I have an 05 also and looking at new tires just because they are old... The car only has 7500 or so miles on it, so the tire wear is good, but not sure how long tires are good for until the just get too old...
