Question 2006 sts v

I am new to the V Service .net and to the V power team; I used to work for a GM dealer here in Bahrain few years back that’s where I really got to know of the V Services GM Performance edition of Cadillac.
I got my first STS-V last month a 2006 Silver with black leather fully loaded, with only 35K (kilometers), and I got at a very good deal as well.
Since I am new to this, I was hoping that someone can give me some pointers on the following topics:-
• It still has the original factory installed Pirelli tires. Even with only 35 K they still look new with enough threads still left on it, but I think it would be safe to get them changed. What is the best alternative brand I was to Hancock V 12 is the best? I was planning to go wider in the back how big can I go with the on the original rims without causing me any problems?
• Since the car was not driven for almost 18 months until I got it last month there is some squeaking sound when I turn or ride a hum while braking? Any idea what this could be? And how to make it go away?
• Any recommendations on where is the best source (good prince and quality) for aftermarket performance parts including exhaust system for STS V? D3 seems to be one but I was told they are no good!!

Thanks in advance and I would highly appreciate your support on this guys.
