Why you should use these tires with NISMO Wheels: 285/35R19 (F), 325/30R19 (R)

I decided to go with RE-11s in 285/35R19 for the front, and 325/30R19 for the rear, from Costco... but there's a bit of an issue: Costco tells me that Bridgestone discontinued the RE-11s!!!

Ok, I'll go with my plan "B" option: I'd go with the RE-71Rs instead... except they apparently don't come in a 325 size!!!

The only other tire Costco sells in that size is the RE-050, but I think that tire sucks balls... it doesn't even come close to the RE-11, or the slightly better RE-71R...

SO NOW WHAT DO I DO?!?!?
The only choice you have is Michelin PS4's. That is what I am going to go with next set unless Bridgestone releases a replacement for the RE11's. Only old stock is left. They may all be gone now. I am not happy they discontinued this tire. It had great grip with good longevity.

This really chaps my ***. This would've been my third set of RE-11s/RE-11As. By far my all around favorite tire, to date. No idea why they scrapped them altogether. Sigh.

I'll do some looking into it, but I get the feeling the PS4s won't stack up against the RE-11s, when they get warmed up on the track.

I track with the PSS's. They will hold up for about 20 ~ 25 minutes before getting greasy. I now have 285/35-19 PS4S on the front. They feel like they have a lot more grip then the PSS's on the street.

They were discontinued a couple years ago... people were just buying remaining stock, in the system, it appears.

I'm a really big fan of Bridgestone tires. They've never let me down and have generally exceeded my expectations. I feel Michelin will have good alternatives... but they won't be as cheap, unfortunately.

Going to Costco again.. hoping they can track some 325s down for me (I went yesterday after the Bridgestone office was closed) somewhere... if not, I'll likely go with 305s in the back instead.

From what I have read and heard PS4Ss are supposed to be better than re11s.

On the front. I went from PSS to the PS4S. I could tell right away of how much more grip there was.

PSSs were a good compromise between were and grip. They tended to last longer than re11s but did not perform as well. The new ps4s was built to improve on grip while keeping its wear and wet weather characteristics.

I would not recommend r71r's for street or track for the most part. My track buddy that I keep talking about has been through 2 sets of r71r's and got about 6 sessions out of the before the steel belts were showing. When I talk to the experience time trial or time attack guys they say the love them but they are only good for one session and really about 3 laps before they start to loose grip. NTO1s are still king for 100 tread wear track tire.

Sigh... I ended up going with Cooper Zeon RS3-S tires.

I was able to get them in 325s and admittedly, they were cheap as ****.

I get the feeling these tires kind of suck (who buys coopers?), but, given that I've upped the tire width by so much, I'm still hoping these provide way better grip than the stock Bridgestone S001s. Those things were god awful and I chewed through 60% of them in one autocross day.

Being in Canada, all in, with shipping and taxes and everything, I paid about $1250 for all four corners. I'd otherwise be looking to spend about $900-1000 more for Michelin PS4s. I really didn't want to pay over 2k for tires, that may or may not last more than 1.5 seasons!

Anyone have a pic of their setup on the 15+ Nismo wheels with 285/35 front and 325/30 rear?

So since the RE-11's were discontinued, the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500's have come out (made by Bridgestone? maybe?) and they seem to be very similar, and they have good reviews on TireRack. Any opinions here?
