Well what tire would you recommend then ? Id like to run like 265/305 or similar. I was thinking maybe the nittos but they have so many I wouldn't know which to pick lmao, I live in Texas so we get rain occasionally but not really enough for it to make a huge difference in my pick.

I can't spend your $$$$ for you; but the PS4S supposed to be premium.

I think ima just miss out on the deal. 20's would make it to where I can't have the tires I want and the tires are a lot more expensive lmfao. Im just buy 19's and get Hankook v12s 265/35 in the front and Re-11s 305/30 in the back both have a diameter of 26.3 so im assuming that that would be a fine set up. Thanks for all the information tho jchammond!

Don't mix tires if you don't need to... either get the V12s all around or the RE11s.

Ok,
Wasn't sure if you were gonna stay close to oem diameter or not.
As a 325/30/19 will easily go under fender & is largest that the RE11 is currently made in.
An 11" wheel is ideal-but some put them on rear Nismo 10.5" wheels & I've even seen them on 12" wide wheels.
Just whatever you like; plenty of room underneath there to work.

I just purchased 20" Michelin Pilot Sport 4S' all around and performance wise, I can tell you they are well worth the money paid! They are excellent looking to boot. I have Bridgestone S04 Pole Positions on my stock sport wheels and they are a pretty good bang for your buck.

If Bridgestone would pick up the 345/30/19 size, that Michelin appears to be deleting;
I'd try a set of 285/35,345/30's in those next set.
Otherwise may end up with 275/35,325/30's..

Just wondering, but what would the issue be with mixing them if the diameter is the exact same? I want the Re11s in the rear for the performance they give and traction but don't need all that in the front so the V12s are still great but a lot cheaper per wheel lol. If there is a big issue then I won't do it..

Could be dangerous during spirited driving;
As 2 completely different tread compounds & tread designs.
They could give you confidence on certain roads & then go stupid & cause you to lose control.
I know this sounds extreme; but you're not riding in a to & from work pos.
These cars can hurt you & the tires are a very important part of keeping everything balanced & under control.

It's not the best idea to mix tires front and rear. Sometimes you can get some weird handling issues. There have been a couple of threads on the subject.

The previous owner of my car saw fit to put garbage on the front and nitto nt555 out back. The understeer is just fantastic

Has anyone fitted 265/40/19 Front - 305/35/19 rear?

From what i've noticed many people decided to step down a profile respectively. This is not something i'm interested in doing as its a lower overall diameter.

OEM is 245/40/19 = 26.7 inches
265/35/19 = 26.3 inches
265/40/19 = 27.3 inches

Seems like a 35 series is actually closer to stock

That said, if you have height and camber adjustment, there's no reason you couldn't fit 265/40 in front. I have seen folks running tires over 27 inches
