Great cheap summer tires are General made by Continental tires in Germany,

While  not a huge savings, i bumped my Continental  Dws 02 up a size to P255/45r20 to fill the wheel well and the larger tire was about $30/tire cheaper with no negative  effects.

No rub on hard turn acceleration or loss of TC in slippery turns?
Still like them? Most tires I check a bit cheaper in the size....

Not even close to rubbing and the tire diameter is ever so slightly  larger, 1/4"+/- more sidewall and about 1/2" wider. Very negligible difference.
P245/45r20=28.68" diameter
P255/45r20=29.04" diameter
Less than 1mph off on the speedometer at 60mph.

I will switch to 255/55/20 when I need tires. 
2013 Lincoln MKS ecoboost, 70,000 miles.  3 bar map 93 tune (E30 in the future) by both AJP Turbo and Ortiz Performance.  PPE catted down pipes, EPP dual CAI (not yet installed so K&N drop in), .026 gapped SP542, 170 degree thermostat, Dynomax axlebacks, and Power Stop Z23 pads and rotors.
