The problem with the PA3 is you won't find them any wider than 245. Therefore, you lose a lot of contact and probably won't get performance like the summer tires which are 265s in the rear. The older PA2s come in 265 width though. I've got them on my car now and in dry conditions it does drive basically like it does on summers.
