Falken FK452s. I swear by them. There has been a few threads on it and I've posted extended comments in them :)

lovely tyre, but I doubt will be in OP's budget unfortunately.

actually, just looking at rolling diameters... the 35 profile tyres above would still be legal- just.

the 245/40/R19 gives: sidewall height 97.79mm, overall diameter of 678.43mm, and overall circumference of 2131.3mm

the 235/40/R19 gives: sidewall height 93.98mm, overall diameter of 670.56mm, and overall circumference of 2106.4mm (speedo difference at 100km/h is 1.168% too fast or reads 101km/h at 100... might help you avoid speeding tickets :))

provided the load ratings are ok, the 235's would be fine to buy. will even aid in acceleration (very slightly) :).
