Help figuring out best setup for my situation

Hello, I'm currently on OEM 18" wheels and continental run flats. I drive on good Arizona roads and don't have to worry about snow only monsoon season. I'm leaning towards 19" forgestar f14 but don't know what tires would suit my driving needs. I only drive 10k miles a year and yes I drive pretty spirited but do not track my car. Let me know what tires I should look at to pair with the forgestars.

Good luck with getting the Forgestars. I've been waiting since February 8th and they just powdercoated them yesterday.

I'm trying to decide between Sumitomo HTRZ-III and Firestone Firehawk Indy 500. 245/35/19 and 275/30/19

I had some Michelin Pilot Super sports on my BMW135 and they were excellent! Great dry grip, nice ride and still very good in the rain. Tread wear was very good also. I live in Vancouver so I know about driving in rain and these tires were still very good in the wet. I have a Continental Conticomfort tire inflation kit so I don't worry about going non-run flat...plus the ride improvement is worth it!

Michelin has released the newer version the Pilot 4S recently. They should be an improvement. I would say check these out...or see if there are some deals on the "older" pilot super sports.

My local shop has stock of them, so I'd only have to wait for fitment and then also I have to get my alignment right!
