Hi all! i live in Central NJ. I have a 2018 Sport 2.0t. Currently I have the all season OEM tires on my car. They work ok, but obviously summer tires will perform much better. Just looking for suggestions at when it is time for me to upgrade my tires. Looking to increase the width and the side wall ratio from stock to 255/35/r19. Tirerack.com said that's the max tire size for the car which is great. Right now, my car doesn't handle very well in the snow so i'm not expecting much from it for snow driving. Looking for much better wet handling. Basically whenever an OEM part needs to be replaced on my car, I'll be upgrading it, to help improve driving overall. I'm also looking for a good set of Carbon Ceramic brake pads and stainless steel brake hoses. I was able to find a company online that does make the stainless steel hoses. I'm looking for better stopping/more aggressive braking, and anti dust pads. Right now, my car has 26,600 miles on it. Thank for all of your support, and any help is appreciated! :)

Going wider in snow and rain is just going to make it plow more. This is why you typically see winter wheel and tire packages in smaller sizes than what is stock. If you want better stopping ect don't waste money on pads and lines. Get lighter wheels and weather specific tires and you will achieve all of that at once. I don't feel any brake flex in the vehicle that would indicate stiffer lines are needed. And trust me people here drive crazy so I have tested them thoroughly already in the short time I have had the car.

Oh, believe me i know what you're talking bout. Yeah, i can understand that around this forum, people drive crazy which is a nice thing to hear. I mean I do have a garage, but i have no space to store an extra set of wheels and tires though. Thanks for the suggestion though. I mean it's not that i necessarily feel any flex in my cars brake lines, i'm just sooo used to putting stiffer brake lines on my car that's why.. The same goes for the carbon ceramic pads. Less brake dust, anti-fade, and usually more aggressive braking. You mean I won't really feel any difference in ceramic pads? They're not too much more money than the OEM ones either which is nice. Yeah as far as tires go, I obviously want to go the widest and lowest profile i can for performance. I mean like I said, as it is, my car doesn't handle all that well in the snow. I'd much rather have wet, and dry performance for handling, and traction. I'm also not going to lie, the OEM wheels look beautiful! I love how they look soo wide as a stock wheel, with the slightly angled spokes coming out of them. Very nice design! Thanks for your help so far though!
