I totally agree with buillit4404 on the 255/45/18 on the stock Bullitt rim. Will give you a wider footprint, .7 inch, and just .2 inch shorter sidewall. More footprint means better braking traction. And the similar sidewall gives road comfort and close alignment to true speedometer reading (at 70 mph, speedometer will show about 1-2 mph greater than true speed). Also the 255/45 is the tested tire size for most brands for Bullitt 18×8.5 rims.
The Michelin AS3 is a great 3 season tire. In FL, I run the Michelin 4S, super grip. For price point, BFG Comp 2 A/S and Sport Comp 2. Just a touch noisier than Michelin and made in USA.
Yes, remove the old TPMS band and replace with with NEW valve TPMS sensors. The OEM band sensors are now 10+ years old and the batteries are aged out.
There are numerous threads on IMBOC about other brand tires. Each brand has their points. But stick with the 255/45/18, which is optimum for the Bullitt rim.
