Just wondering if you guys have any thoughts on a 205/45R16 tire in the front for an LSS-equipped vehicle (as a replacement tire)?

The choices for 195/50R16 tires seems limited in North America and I'm not sure how well the A048s will hold up as an everyday tire (though I just read in another thread that some are projecting 10K miles)

I was wondering about, say, the Michelin Pilot Exalto PE2 in:
205/45R16 F
225/45R17 R

I've also read about how the front tire size change from non-sport to sport models decreases the understeer tendancies. Would going to a 205 section tire affect the handling more?

Your thoughts are most appreciated!!

Update - Michelin to offer OEM sizes

Just an update for anyone who is a Michelin fan or is interested in the Pilot Exalto PE2, the spec sheet PDF at michelinman.com says that the tire will be available in the OEM 195/50R16 size in Q4 or this year.
