The PSS and Yokohama AD08's come in 265/35/19 and 295/30/19 but should work fine. I like the idea of a slightly wider tire but they might not be the best option for a DD.Tflong24 said:I want to go with Michelin PSS, but they don't have them in our stock sizes, so will probably go with PS2s.
Those look promising and the rears should be available any day now.b17drvr said:I'm going with the BFG Sport Comp II

hmm I have these on a set of black bullit wheels in 18" and they ssssuuuuuuuuuuccccccckkkkkkkkk!!!!!! makes the car ride like a truck they are loud and they grip like I am driving on ice.....and that was in a 06 GT. And the turn in on those tires was horrible. There isnt one good thing I can say about those tires.....dabossinne said:I've had good luck with Sumi HTR ZIIIs... they're an excellent "compromise" street/track tire.
Ran them on my '96 Porsche 993 and liked them a lot. Low noise and decent ride on the street. On the track, as long as they were not overinflated they were surprisingly grippy despite a 300 wear rating (overinflated they'd run too hot and get greasy like any street tire). Decent wear, too... 993s are notorious for chewing up rear tires in a hurry, and I had about 6 days of DE and maybe 5k street miles on my Sumis... running -1.5 deg front and -2deg rear camber and the rears still had at least 70% tread left; the fronts were barely worn at all. They're reasonably priced, too, compared to the big-name brands.
dabossinne said:The problem with finding tires to serve double duty on the street and the track, are the compromises that result. There's just is no way you can find one DOT-spec tire that does everything well. Regardless of what tire you choose, you're going to compromise on some aspect or combination of wear, wet (or dry) traction, ride, noise, etc. Really, the best answer is to bite the bullet (or wallet) and buy a dedicated track wheel set mounted with R compound DOTs or race slicks.
