the best i've found are A539s by yokohama (175x60x13) - they were only 70$ a piece AND a real modern tyre which can cope with your TC power - the others you mention DON'T and are made for cars with 50hp!! sandy

Awaiting a quote from local Lobo Tires (Michigan) for the Kumho Solus HA31s.
Do I need to worry about tubes with the stock S4 4-1/2" J knock-on wheels? The service manual references tubeless Firestone F.100 tires so I think I'll be OK without tubes.

Sounds good Randy. Will follow up with you directly.

Dick, I never ran tubes with any of my various tire choices, so think you are good to go. This included the stock steel rims, Minilites and various modern and more vintage tire sizes. The spare in the trunk has never really lost inflation over several years. Plus 2 mind you, but sure the stock rims are essentially the same seal as yours.
