What size wheels and all season or summer? US 20" wheels are AS Continental Extreme Contact and the summers are Michelin Pilot Sport 4.

It can theoretically vary but those are the standard 20" tire options for the US.

In the US, the Turbo S 21" wheels come standard with summer tires unless you option out for all-season.

If that's true, it sucks we can't option the summer tires on a Turbo with 21" wheels. It's basically an extra $2k after getting the car to put decent tires on it.

I'm in Florida and my Turbo with 21" Mission E Wheels have Continental ProContact RX tires. Continental website describes them as "An all-season touring tire with excellent traction and braking in dry and wet conditions, balanced with superb fuel efficiency and a quiet, comfortable ride."

Michelin Pilot Sport 4's are pretty good tires, unless there's something I don't know about.

That's what I'd choose. (I put them on my Macan). But 21" wheels in the US on the Turbo come with A/S tires with no option to have it come with summers.

From the US manual:

Summer Tires:

FA 265/35 ZR21 (101Y) XL on 9.5J x 21 RO 60 wheels

RA 305/30 ZR21 (104Y) XL on 11.5J x 21 RO 60 wheels

Not sure if this is a difference between Turbo and Turbo S.

Just got confirmation from my dealer that my summer tires on 21" mission E rims will be Pilot Sport 4. Remember, the tires on the Turbo S are different than the Turbo.
