Ah yes, good point! My thought process was that I felt a slightly lower profile tire would be more sporty/responsive and a better experience for how I want to drive during the summer months. It will likely never see gravel or off road conditions during the summer time. Some of the roads do have potholes/repairs, but I figured that would be minor compared to the benefits.
Thanks for the information, much appreciated! I suspect that given how uncommon it is for people to mod Tribecas, I may just have to go for it and report back on how it is. Thankfully I still have time, won't be buying summer tires until March or April of next year I imagine!
