Tires - '14 GT/CS - FL Weather

I have a '14 Mustang GT/CS (manual) and it came with the tires below:
Pirelli P245/45 ZR 19 98W M+S

My GT is a daily driver; no racing/track or crazy driving.
But I do drive it a lot, about 20k miles/yr. It is not my only car but I figured I am not saving miles on the car for the next person.

Also, my tires kind of look "lowprofile" - like they are aren't big and bulky. I'm afraid I am going to pick a tire to makes my mustang look like a truck with big tires. Is this possible or is that would the size is all about (P245/45 ZR 19 98W M+S)?

I live in FL so snow/ice are not a problem - just heat and rain.
I was looking at these but would appreciate some feedback:
Continental Extreme Contact DWS 06
Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+

I dont think you are going to have the truck look problem with 19" tires. Do you have any mods regarding wheels or lowering or anything planned? Doesn't sound like it but I though I would ask. If keeping stock and driving daily either of those would be fine tires. I had Sumitomo HRIII and they lasted quite well, good in rain but I ditched because wanted softer for better launch traction. I have actually been very impressed with my Nitto INVO in all ways. I have Bridgestones in the rear right now and don't find them anything special especially since they cost more.

Why are you looking at all seasons if you live in Florida? get summer tires.
Michelin pilot super sports or continental DW (not DWS)
If you stick to stock size they will be the same height
