I think I'm going to try the new Continental Sport Attack 3's when the time comes.
That's if the chain won't touch that particular model tire... It's so close, that I almost thought something was assembled incorrectly when I first saw mine... I mean, who cares, if that's the way it's supposed to be, then fine.
... It would be unfortunate if I was married to this particular model tire and its 'V' contact-patch profile, due to the chain's close design. Personally, I prefer more of a 'U' profile. Like a Michelin Pilot, etc. (Just personal preference. Not saying one is better than the other.)
I will add, however, that when I had my 500-mile service done at the dealer, they used the typical watery chain lube, instead of the more wax-like lube the chain had from the factory... And since the chain was so close to the tire, it was literally caked on my tire's chicken-strip! I haven't had a "moment" or anything due to this, but that surely isn't desirable.
