Do you drive into mainland China? Or just stay in Hong Kong?

Do you park in tight spaces (streets or car parks) with high kerbs?

Both of these would advise NOT to go with 20".

Geez. As the owner of a Nissan GT-R (which has similar systems to Infiniti cars), I can't agree with all of the complaints.

To OP - which Atlanta Costco?

Dunwoody, Brookhaven, Cumberland, Duluth or Alpharetta?

I was planning to replace my tires there.

FWIW, I have the Primacy's.
