I just got rid of those crappy Continentals. I went with the S03 Pole Positions. I put 275s on the rear. They have a much more aggressive tread pattern. They are slightly louder, but not very noticible. Because of the more aggressive tread pattern I cannot say for sure that they look wider, but I think it is noticible. I just put them on yesterday and have not been able to test them much yet. There does seem to be a little more more traction though.

Replaced my ContiSportContacII's with Michelin PS2's.
I am in heaven. Have had 4 or 5 sets of PS1's on E55's and hated every one of them after 6 or 7,000 miles. It made it really hard for me to try the PS2's. Went that way because they are not directional and can be rotated side to side to reverse rotation and potentially balance out tapered shoulder block wear which is what causes "off road knobby" type tire noise. No noise problems yet at 4500 miles - no surprise. BUT, traction wet or dry and character of the tire are just incredabe. I could learn to like noise for this tire, but may not have to.
Try them - you will never go back!!! Promise.
