How’s the handling compared to Pirellis?
You do realize 245/35 R19 is the wrong dimension? 225/40 in front, 255/35 in the rear would be correct.

i thought all Michelin had that textured finish around the word Michelin and Pilot Sport 4/s look more like this

if you are within 3% of original size, you are within tolerance so it's fine and wouldn't call it wrong dimension.
including myself, there are others running 245/40 or 235/40 size which is also within 3%.

245/35 is what the QV has in front on 8.5" wide wheels, and it's completely fine on the 8" wide wheel.

Mounting them wrong is no good though, who in the hell did that? Run from that installer, fast. (after they fix it first)

Theres staggered 5 holes and square ones i believe.

Squares are 8" all around.

You can put the 245 on an 8" wheel although its maxed out and treadwidth is .6" wider that the wheel so you'll get more squishy handling (more deflection) and slower acceleration (due to upping the overall diameter).

Handled great.
Had at 115 and no wheel shake.
Rear wheels dont break loose in turns.
Hoping for better tread life w more of a flat foot print.
Inner tread went fast on the Pirellis

Make sure you take them back to get mounted correctly.

Unfortunately it was the largest tire distributor in Arizona that mounted my tires. I suppose they put an amateur on my car and that's not a good thing. I did call and they are changing it for me today. Thank you again noticing this.
