Probably something along the lines of 235/40/18, 265/35/18. Pretty standard. If by type you mean brand then Michelin pilot super sports, conti dws, and hankook v12's seem to be the most popular. Unless you're slammed this set up on your wheel specs fits pretty much all 3's.

Tire rack will recommend 225/40/18, 255/35/18 which is also good but most ppl seem to prefer the wider tire specs above to fill the wheel wells a bit more.

Michelin PSS should be compared to Conti DW, not the DWS that's an all-season tire.
