Stock 18x8 TIre Options for the back?

My stock p zero at 27k miles is showing wear and i need to get new tires for my 14 v6 pony package. Stuck between picking G-FORCE COMP-2 A/S or the stock p zero's again. Also can i fit wider tires on the back? (my stock one is 235/50/18). Also what tires do you guys recommenced for all season (Houston weather). any help is appreciated.

I think the Continental EXTREMECONTACT DWS 06
Ultra High Performance All-Season
are rated a bit better than the G-FORCE COMP-2 A/S and a lot of people on this forum have mentioned them. They both have good ratings. I personally wouldn't do the p zero A/S again.

As far as widest tires. Assuming you now have 8" wide rims limits you to 255/45-18 for a maximum width. I believe that the limit on an 8" rim as it is listed in the tire rack charts as doable.
Theoretically a 255 tire would be about 3/4" wider than your 235 but the actual difference would vary based on the actual rim width it was mounted on, as well as the manufacturer of the tire. Being on a 8" wide rim would make it less, I believe.
So chances are, any substantial increase in width would require wider rims.

Thanks for the help! Any thought about the Hankook Ventus V12 EVO2 K120?

Well I only know what I see for ratings at TireRack.com and these tires are summer only tires and with relatively poor ratings. I prefer the all season you were looking at originally. Or if the cost isn't too much more, the Continental EXTREMECONTACT DWS 06 Ultra High Performance All-Season, appear to have the best performance and tread wear ratings.
Summer only typically means you shouldn't be using them in temperatures around 40 degrees and below.
