I recommend route 81. Great scenery! Stop over in Roanoke or in Kingsport Tennessee. I live in Atlanta and have done that drive several times.

P7 are more expensive and I think a better tire than the Pzero Nero. It's a different tire.

Whatever it comes with should be fine. In my opinion, it would be a waste of money swapping them at delivery for the exact same size tire in a different brand. They will probably bend you over on...
