New Shoes (not Paulo Nutini)

Finally got my wife's '15 TLX Adv some new shoes. Replaced the less-than-average Bridgstones with a set of Michelin Pilot Sport AS 3+ 245/45-18s. The Bridgstones has 33xxx miles on them and still had tread life but their rain specs are dangerous. I feel better getting her a new set of tires.

I love the Pilot Sport AS, I used to have them in my 2016 TLX. I cannot believe they actually call that tire all season especially how much grip they have. Best all season tires I've had in any vehicle. I am still trying to convince myself to get a set for my A-Spec. 19" rubber are much more expensive than 18".

Agreed. I have the 19s on my TLX. LOVE them. They are definitely not snow tires, but anything short of that, they are just about perfect.

Really anything beats the stock Bridgestones (or any other Bridgestone tire imo). I have the A/S 3+ on my TLX as well and it's a world of difference. Got them almost 16k miles ago and have been very happy with them since. Still as quiet and smooth a ride as the day they were put on. Can't say the same about the Bridgestones 16k miles later...
