Time for me to buy new tires. I have stock rims. I've decided on the BFG g-Force COMP-2 A/S. I choose these based on the performance limitations on the current ecopias that are on it now and my driving style. My preferred size would by a 225/45-17 and my second size choice would be 205/50-17.
The 225 is wider and less expensive however the recommended time width starts at 7 inches. If there are performance sacrifices in the dry (I know hydroplaning is likelier to occur) please let me know.

I had ghe G-Force COMP-2 A/S tires on my TL, so say I hated them is a gross understatement. While they did have decent stability and handling performance, they got so noisy after only 10,000 miles or so anything over a 20-minute drive would give me a headache. You might want to consider the General G-MAX AS-05; they are also reasonably priced, and on our 2016 Mazda3 they have worn very well and are still very quiet.
