295 will be fine but if you can, I'd go 305 and 265 front

After 15K still at 4-5/32 and the abuse of a supercharger...

Those still look great! Good to see...

I've only had mine on for about 1K and haven't tracked them yet. I really have to work to get the back loose with VDC off. Amazing grip!

Hopefully get to do some Time Attack in the next few weeks.

Too bad that Tire Rack is sold out of the big sizes now. And the new RE-11A's don't come in 19". Now I'm stuck on what to get. Has anybody installed the Dunlop Direzza ZII's yet? Any impressions?

Tire Rack says Bridgestone are creating new molds for 200 tread wear for RE11 so it will be several weeks to months before they get them in rear sizes so I am considering Michelin Pilot SuperSport or Sport PS2s...

*sigh* Now the RE11 285/35/19 Pilot SuperSports are 6-8 week backordered. Maybe I will go with the 305/30/19. Or just the stock sport 275/35/19.

Does the 315/30/19 not fit? Seems like it is closer to OEM sizing...

for 9.5" front 10.5" rear 18" rims, what's a good size for RE11 to get?

Default V12s

All i know is that my V12s are great, especially compared with stock Yokohamas. They are very quiet. It would be interesting to compare with Bridgestones, toyos, Michelin Pilot Sports personally.

They don't compare in terms of grip, don't try or bother

I'm in need of new tires now. So my question is do I go with RE11' s in OEM size (can't get them in the lager size)...or PSS or 0S4s in 265 & 305 configuration. Thanks for the feedback in advance!

Tirerack has a good deal on Potenza S-04 Pole Position right now. Under 1K for 265/35-19 and 305/30-19. If I needed a set right now I would be all over this.

Very frustrating. After a lot of research I finally decided on RE-11's 245/40-19 285/35-19. Now I can't them! Anyone have any leads on them? The summer rains are coming so I can't wait for the the new ones to come out.

I'm in Phoenix visiting my brother and thought I might get lucky and find tires while I'm in the big city. The only company that could get the RE-11s was Tire Pros. I think some companies may still have them in their warehouses, but stock is limited to OEM sizes and the quantity is low. That is why I'm thinking about getting the S-04s, they are in stock and the price is right. Performance wise I don't see much of a difference between them and the PSSs to justify the $300 in additional cost!
