Had a tough time with the Dunlop Sport Maxxx not gripping to anything. So I went out and got some new Michelin tires.

Fronts: 255/40/19 Pilot Sport 4
Rears: 275/35/19 Pilot Super Cup 2

So far it's been an incredible difference in smoothness and traction. The Cups grip like a baby stripped to its momma.
Having a small issue with understeer with the front tires, but could be just because they're new.

I see you went two tire sizes up from the original ( 235/45 19 )front . Has this been a clearance problem ? Any rubbing ? Are your replacement tires " run flat ?"

No problems with any rubbing at all.
