Just got the car few days ago, and I am located in the heart of mid-west so I would need to swap the currents summer tires to an all-season one.

I don't have a space for winter sets, and I don't plan on swapping summer and winter tires. As much as I love the performance of the summer tires, I am willing to compensate for the easiness and lesser probability of death from winter driving.

So the stock PP tire size is 235/35/19. Looks like the best available high-performance all-season tire option is the Continental's EXTREMECONTACT DWS 06. I assume these will fit since it is the same size as the stock tires? Could I also go to something like 225's?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Doubt they'll be much selection for an all season on the 19's. I've had good luck with Michelin pilot sport as3+ on other cars if it's available.

ECS DWS is an excellent tire. 225 or 235 should be perfect for the stock wheels. I am running 225/45r18 on 18x8 for the winter.

I was in a similar situation; I didn't want 2 sets of wheels/tires, and where I live it can be snow/freezing rain in the morning and up to the 70s in the afternoon...so UHP so all-season tires just make sense for me. While I drive somewhat aggressive and do (tame) track events a couple times a year, daily drivability is my priority.

I've been very happy with the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+in 225/40-18 on my VN PP. Have been great in rain, I'm not getting wheel hop/traction loss in aggressive daily driving, they're fairly quiet, and seem to be holding up well. The taller sidewall on 40-series tires (vs. the stock 35s) gives me more confidence on bad roads also.

I had the Conti DWS06 on a mildly tuned '16 GTI, also in 225/40-18. While they're a bit lighter (and cheaper) than the Michelins and great in bad weather, the sidewalls are a bit soft, causing the tire to roll over a bit during aggressive driving. I have to imagine that being worse in a more powerful car like the VN.
