That sucks. I'm boosted and wanted to go wider in the rear for more traction while keeping the stock sport package rims... So 285 RE-11s are better even when boosted huh?

Hi guys, I ran 305 wide Pilot Sport PS2 on stock 10.5" wide rim with no issues. It did help with my traction issue a bit. However, I didn't like that aspect ratio is only available in a 30 instead of 35. Time for new tires. I am debating on going with a 315 or sticking to the 305. Anyone try a 315 wide on a nismo 10.5"rim? Also aspect ratio drops to 25 on a 315.
