Default Do I need new tires with Vossen Wheels?

I'm considering Vossen CV7s. I have AWD on my GS350. I like my stock Michelin tires. If I get Vossen CV7s put on can I put the Michelin's back on? I don't want to have pay for new rubber too. I only have 6K miles on my 9 month old car.

Assuming you're doing a square set up and your wheels are 19'... Then yes by all means. Are the CV7s offered in 19'? Vossen CV7 starts at 20'... You have stock 20' tires equipped on your AWD GS350???

I have the same car but F sport which has 19" wheels and Michelin tires. You're gonna have to get bigger tires if the CV7s are 20"

Vossen doesn't make anything as small as an 18" wheel...I think 20" is the smallest they make.
